Time for m43 to do PF (fresnel lens)
7

Courtesy of my local camera shop, just look at the normal 300 compared to the PF version. The normal Nikon is 1/8" shorter than the Oly Pro 300 f4... so the PF is what an m43 size 300 lens could be as well.

300 normal vs PF

Plus look at a 500mm 5.6 PF (the smaller one) next to a conventional 300mm f2.8... obviously the diameter of the 2.8 will be a bit bigger, but check out the length.

500 5.6 PF (smaller one) vs 300 2.8

Some say the fresnel designs are not sharp enough for high pixel density m43 sensors... I wish at the next Oly interview of big chiefs, someone would ask them.

M43 equivalence: "Twice the fun with half the weight"
"You are a long time dead" -
Credit to whoever said that first and my wife for saying it to me. Make the best you can of every day!
