    Thanks Bengeo. As soon as any lens becomes white the price becomes high in my experience this could be prohibitive for many.
    Thanks for the link

      Ahhhh, sorry, I didn't click on your link because I thought you were referring to the full roadmap shown last January.

      That roadmap -

      https://www.43rumors.com/this-is-the...-lens-roadmap/

      did show the expensive M Zuiko Pro 150-400 lens you were referring to but it also showed a proposed (but no definite focal lengths) M Zuiko 'Super Telephoto Zoom Lens' with the zoom range being somewhere between 90 and 410. This lens would be similar to the Panny 100-400 and is the one I was referring to when I said I hope it comes soon.

            Remember that the 100-400 carries Leica branding. Perhaps there is some technology in there that even Panasonic aren't privy to. Olympus could not risk producing something that is not as good a performer.

              It seems like a gap Sigma could fill nicely with a 100-400mm that included their art lens technology. I'd definitely buy one.

                I'm surprised that Sigma haven't produced any of their tele lenses in MFT mount.


                It's a reminder that MFT is still a 'niche' market, despite its great virtues that we all know so well
