Good thinking

If a firmware update can be found then fine.

But if it needs a new lens, then exactly replacing an existing lens is rather inefficient.

Keep the current lens,  and offer a new alternative with a real different.  Higher cost, faster aperture, faster focus.  Then the limitation of the existing lens is acceptable since the right product choice solves the problem.

Weather sealed 100-300 faster (f4?) fast focus premium lens sounds like a really sound addition to the catalog
