Re: Olympus 100-400: not as bad as rumored

Today I stopped by the local camera store today and pre-ordered the Olympus 100-400/5.0-6.3 lens.  Image quality looks to be close to equal to the PL 100-400/4.0-6.3.  The weather sealing might be better.  The price is less.  It operates (ring rotation) like all the other Olympus lenses.  It should pair up nicely with the 12-100/4.0 lens.

I thought about waiting until winter to see the 150-400/4.5.  Then I decided even if I did buy the 150-400/4.5 in the future it would be more a special situation lens for when I am going out for serious wildlife photography.   The 12-100/4.0 and the 100-400/5.0-6.3 could easily be my general photography kit.
