  • Thanks, Geoffrey.   I love the photo of the toad! Bob
  • Hmm...  You may be right.  I repeated the test (IBIS+OIS vs. IBIS only, 5 shots each) and this time there was no clear difference.  Maybe in the earlier test I was unconsciously holding the camera ...
  • Created discussion thread Finally got the 100-300 II!
    Panasonic was very slow in getting the 100-300 II into stores in Canada; I finally got my lens about two weeks ago.  So far, I'm very pleased with the purchase. I've read about some samples of this ...
  • A factor that isn't mentioned much in the discussion on the Panasonic 100-300 (Mk. I or II) and 100-400 is size/weight.  In addition to a m4/3 system (E-M5 II) I have system based on the Canon 6D, ...
  • Replied in My only issue
    I have a 6D and several L-series lenses (not the 300L) but I don't use it very much.  I use m4/3 (currently OM-D EM-5 II) much more.  That and the Sony RX100 Mk.III My panasonic 100-300 is awful. O ...
  • How about the Canon 100-400, wth hood on?  I have one of these, but I hardly ever use it, mostly because the size and the weight.  I'm thinking of selling it, and getting a Panasonic 100-300 or ...
  • I talked to a Panasonic rep at CES, and he confirmed what I've read elsewhere: the 100-300 II is optically identical to its predecessor. However, it has improved autofocus and IS, which means that...

  • Replied in 250?
    A bit more information: The sign under the 50-200 says "Under Study." Bob
  • Replied in 250?
    Ah, you're right.  Sorry!  Wishful thinking on my part, I guess. I actually took a photo, and now that I check it, I see that it's 50-200.  Still, that would be pretty good.  And the fact that ...
  • Created discussion thread Panasonic 50-250 f/2.8-f/4.0
    This is a prototype lens I saw at CES (and I haven't seen it mentioned in this forum).  It's about the size of the 100-300.  The product on display was more of a mock-up than a prototype, with ...
  • I talked to a Panasonic rep at CES, and he said that no optical improvement is claimed, just improved compatability with the new bodies. Bob
  • That's interesting.  I bought a used 12-40 Pro in mint condition, and found that it indeed provided better performance than a couple of consumer grade lenses covering the same range.  I started ...
