Panasonic Leica 200mm

Would you buy the Panasonic Leica 200mm f2.8 lens?

A new basic video review at:

http://thisweekinphoto.com/panasonic...bout-the-gear/

The lens came out late last year but I only just noticed it via the above review.

Re: Panasonic Leica 200mm

But it's very nice though Henry I had a play with one at the recent Photo Show at the NEC. For me I preferred the reach and price tag of the 100-400 but it's a lot slower.

Re: Panasonic Leica 200mm

Uncle Phil, you got to play with it at NEX?? :JEALOUS.

Would love to have this. The 150mm is just not enough. BUT that price tag it carries, I can only dream. 100-400..at tat not bright enough.

Re: Panasonic Leica 200mm

It was at the Photography Show at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham in March this year Henry. I agree about the 100-400 it would be nice if it was a bit brighter at 400 but high iso is pretty good these days so it's not so bad. If it had a much wider aperture then it's weight would go up so it's always a compromise between max aperture weight and price as you know of course. Mind you I thought gear was cheap in Malaysia

Re: Panasonic Leica 200mm

Unfortunately the prices are pretty much international. The advantage (disadvantage) is the difference in exchange rate. At the point of the 12-100, the Ringgit was pretty strong but have since dropped to almost GBP1 to RM6. With our new Gov, it's going to to go stronger. So not that attractive
