Small, Ultra High Quality Telephoto Zooms - Why not?
4

I still don't understand why Olympus (or Panasonic) can't make a small "no compromises" 45-200 f4-5.6 lens.

I'm allowing the f stop to be small. I'm allowing the f stop to vary. What I'm interested in is size.

So in comparison to the 40-150 f 2.8, I'm actually giving the manufacturers 3 more degrees of freedom than they had making that large lens.

This would be perfect for those occasions where there is decent light, and it would be a WHOLE NEW MARKET SEGMENT.

I would pay $1,000 for such a lens if it equaled the image quality of the 40-150 2.8
