Re: Olympus developing a new 500mm lens?

Actually, after reading the press release, and subsequent preliminary reviews, from earlier this year, IMHO I think that if the lens gets a reasonable pricing/weight ratio like the 300 mm, I would opt for this lens. And with reasonable weight i mean under 2 kgs.
I expect this lens would be, to be realistic, around € 2,500 to € 2,600.
Means I still have a full year of saving up till the next RNLAF Open days at Gilze-Rijen Air force Base in June 2021.
