For Sale: Leica 100-400mm and Lumix G80 with Kit Lens

So here is my dilemma, having purchased my EM1 MK2, I have the Olympus 40-150mm F2.8. Also purchased the Leica 100-400 which I have been very happy with. And decided last month (March) for non birding pics I would buy the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G80 Kit with 12-60mm lens. The G80 has hardly been used, in fact it's been in the box apart from using it for a few test shots when I bought it. Now... I really want the Olympus 300 F/4 but to get that I need to sell both the Leica 100-400mm and the G80 with kit lens which are both in mint condition with original box including all items supplied with each by manufactures. Selling the 100-400mm for 900.00 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G80 Kit with 12-60mm lens for 680.00. I'm not sure how this works. It could be on a buyer collects basis or I can post but postage would be paid in addition to price of items. If I have not gone about this the the correct manner please let me know and I will change whatever needs to be changed.

Tony

TBH I'd hang on to the 100-400. The Panasonic's not as fast as the 300/4 but by the time you've added the MC14 to get 420/5.6 there's not a lot in it and the cost differential is considerable. I'm fortunate to have both and if I had to dispose of one it would be the 300. For most of my purposes the versatility of the zoom outweighs the advantages of the prime.

Hi David,

Thanks for the information. Its good to get feedback from someone who has both lenses. Since posting this up earlier today. I have been doing some additional scouting around for reviews, video comparisons etc... after going through many of them, I have to agree that it seems the difference between the two lens is not worlds apart. From what I am reading and what you have said confirms that, the difference is not day and night. Yes the 300mm F4 is slightly sharper and as you say being F/4 once I add the 1.4x convertor, presumably the difference between images will be even less noticeable, well probably not 1,000 worth. So I am withdrawing the lens from sale and holding on to it. Although the human feeling inside still kinda of wants the 300 f4.
