Suhas Sudhakar Kulkarni: "hair-thin depth of focus [that] isolates subjects with extreme precision"
So if you are shooting a model with focus on a hair, Only the hair will be in focus and everything else will be a smooth blurred background? To save some money, instead of hiring an expensive model just take a hair and put it on wall, chair, table anywhere and shoot !

@tkbslc, I was joking :-)
I know there are large aperture lenses, including f/0.95 and there is nothing new here.

Sunshine7913: People. You are comparing with wrong lenses. 200mm F2.8 in m43 is 400mm in FF. The light gathering doesn't even do anything but DOF. F2.8 is F2.8. All super telephoto lenses are super expansive even at F4. 400mm F4 from Canon cost $7000. $3000 for 400mm F4 is much cheaper.

Hey do you read what you write?
Tell me why you are entitled to compare 400mm f2.8 full frame vs 200mm f2.8 m43, AND you can not compare 400mm f2.8 on fz300 vs 200mm f2.8 lens on m43? You shoul follow the same norm when comparing.
Compare 200mm f2.8 m43 vs 400mm f5.6 FF if you want. Not with 400mm f2.8 FF which has far more utility value ( like shooting in dark rainforest at iso 6400 or iso 12800 which yoh can ont imagine on 200mm f2.8 on m43.
fz300 is 12mp, ha! you know there are 50mp full fra.e sensor cameras! ha ha!
Again, fz300 analogy is just to prove how sensless comparison is across formats with weired equivalence idea. I am no way comparing it with 200mm f2.8 on m43

OK, so when comparing with fz300 you will bring in the point of small sensor, depth of field etc. But when comparing between ff and m43 you will ignore those points!
BTW I am not comparing fz300 with this lens, I am giving you an anology to prove how your idea of 'Equivalence' is senseless when comparing costs across different formats.
I hope you also understand for telephoto range like 200 or even 400, zoom vs prime is no more relevant in terms of image quality. may be it was 10 year back. Most of the 70-200 and 100-400 full frame lenses are excellent performers.

So, the new panasonic 200mm f2.8 lens is way too expensive

Futgermore, 400mm f5.6 on full frame and 200mm f2.8 om m43 will give exactly same experience and depth of field. Only thing we will need to bump up iso for ff lens, but hey who bothers about iso on ff?

Note, this is from my experience as I HAVE used ff, m43 and aps-c formats and currently using panasonic. So nothing against panasonic

f2.8 is f2.8? Not if you consider the depth of field with FF vs m43.

If you argue abput this 400mm ff, then you know even panasonic has fz300 wchich comes with leica zoom of 25-600 'equivalent to ff' , and it costs nothing in front of this lens! My point is, it is 200mm f2.8 lens and not 400mm f2.8 lens. And it is way overpriced!

Suhas Sudhakar Kulkarni: I was hoping one day Panasonic will make such lens, but not at this price!
As I read a lot of comments here, pleople are arguing full frame vs mft field of view, equivalen aparture, equivalent focal length and what not. I am not even going there. Simply compare the PHYSICAL focal length of 200mm and PHYSICAL apartute of 2.8 and compare the lenses from canon, nikon or even tamron. Panasonic is overpriced for sure.
Long back Panasonic was planning for 150mm f2.8. But when they saw Olympus 40-150 reasonably priced lens , they had to scrap their idea. Perhaps because their proposed 150mm f2.8 would
cost much more So finally they came out with this 300mm f2.8!
Hope olympus brings in zoom like 50-200 or 70-200 f2.8 at half thr price.

Sorry typo, 200mm f2.8 lens

Tamron, make one for MFT please.
MFT is compact system, this kind of lens is most required to complement it.

kobakokh: its very interesting: Canon and Nikon totally ignored this Photokina show... But Sony, Olympus, Panasonic and Fujifilm shows their flagship products, very high quality, even top class products... I really don't understand whats happen now in the world... Its looks like the DSLR era is ending, and then Canon and Nikon not interesting for this kind of show, maybe we will see soon their mirrorless cameras, but after this Photokina they will have very strong competitors, if not better... Last OM-D and GH5 are extraordinary good cameras...

Guy, dont be so emotional about camera brands !
Each of them have target matket and each have their strengths and limtations.
Most of the camera enthusiasts constantly look for new products. Even if a camera brand offers 100+ lenses, a new lens is always welcome (and so is new camera). Its just that Canon and Nikon announce their products as per their availability and market demand rather than in the shows like this. Sometime the announcements do coinside with the shows. But does not mean they have nothing to show.

Canon and Nikon are not aligning their product announcements with major shows anymore. They just announce at random times.

In reply to:

Androole: I feel like Panasonic's Auto ISO implementation is the sole blemish on their otherwise exceptionally user-focused interface. I just don't understand it...

At least there's Auto ISO in M now, unlike my GX7. But the ability to bias the metering with Exposure Compensation is just so useful...

I agree. Auto ISO in my GX85 is so basic. You can just select highest ISO, but you can not select minimum shutter speed. Particularly for wildlife, the camera will always pick the highest ISO specified. My Nikon D7100 had an option to specify min shutter speed, and anything below that will increment the ISO.

Panasonic, you make my life difficult...
just after buying GX85, I see this announcement of almost same camera with mic input, weather sealong, OLED.... I cant upgrade and I cant stop whinging....
Great new camera and very good kit with 12-60 lens....

Andrew Elliott: F2.4? What's that in Micro Four Thirds?

"Who cares until M43 updates their lousy sensors?"
why such lousy comment??
m43 make excellent sensors, by many benchmarks and experiences of many photographers.
