Olympus 100-400: not as bad as rumored
7

After the latest rumors, I had two worries about this new lens that would make me wait till next year:

  1. That it will arrive too late for me to use it much.
  2. That it will be more expensive than PanaLeica (it's supposed to be 1300 EUR vs Panasonic's 1500 EUR on average).

Well, looks like the sales are to start on August 20 here and it is cheaper than Panasonic.

Looks very respectable from all the first impressions, and comparisons to Panasonic so far look favorable. I'm probably going to go with my initial plan of buying this on launch (most likely with a TC).

Not a fan of the size and weight, though, but looks great otherwise.

What do you guys think? Will you be buying one?
