One of the first lenses announced was the 300mm f/2.8 Big Tuna. Clearly Olympus was targeting pros with the E-1 as not too many amateurs buy a 300mm f/2.8 at $7,000 new.

And then they did not sell many of them, as today it is rather a rarity, but the system continued. Till it finally made absolutely no sense even to Olympus themselves, as their market simply faded from existence.

And it's a lens that I have on my Christmas list - not for this year but next if things go well for me in 2014

And I am sure you will love it and take many wonderful photos with it, as it is a fabulous lens and produces distinctive - superlative images no matter which analog to digital converter (i.e. camera!) happens to be attached to it!
