Re: Excited about Fuji's forthcoming lenses

The price is the really scary part. If this lens is tack sharp on the long end it could compare favorably enough with the 100-400 to practically obsolete the larger lens in the eyes of any budget conscious user.

I know that making up for a 33% increase in focal length is a lot, but it's not out of the question. Fuji could finally have a budget birder's dream lens here.

Given that the new 70-300 is half the size and weight of my Canon 400f5.6 (and especially with the total lack of close focusing on the Canon), it might actually be worth owning both lenses.

Then if Fuji does release a 150-600mm they'll have all their bases covered.
