Any rumors on the horizon about an m43 lens longer than 400mm?

Re: Any rumors on the horizon about an m43 lens longer than 400mm?

PanaLeica 100-400 came before the Oly 300mm - Oly may have been announced earlier, but the PL lens hit the market first.

And Panasonic and Olympus are competitors - they may share the same mFT mount and some other specks for a camera system, but they decide about the lens line-up themselves. Of course they keep an eye on each other, and Sigma too, maybe even some others.

The PL 100-400mm lens seems to be very good optically, so it is a real world option for the 300mm (+ MC14). Lighter, zoom, but slower aperture. You can't have it all...



Still, with the Oly 40-150 having 100-190 covered (with the TC available at that time) it would have made more sense for a 200-500mm. But the past is etched in stone and so is my mistake in buying it (the 100-400). For me, it was a good lens for only bright, sunny days.

Have you use the Oly 300 f/2.8 with an mFT adapter? Can a TC work with this setup?
