    So that’s a 200-800 equivalent lens, right? Better have a helluva stabilizer.

    • Eno

      It probably will have a very good stabilizer. 🙂

      = to F/8-F/13 no less. Be still my beating heart.

      • harvey

        for depth of field.

  • If they had made it f5.6 at 400mm it would more obviously compete with the Canon 100-400 lenses that some are reporting work quite well on m43 with adaptors.

    • Eno

      No lens is working well on adapters (IMO), they work but how well is questionable. Genuine glass for that mount is always preferable.

    • harvey

      perhaps you are thinking of FE mount?

      • Tom Caldwell and others over at dpreview are reporting that many Canon EF-mount lenses work pretty well using Kippon and Metabones adaptors that AF – both ‘straight’ adaptors and ‘speed boosters’.

        In some cases the AF is slow or unreliable. This makes them unsuitable for folk who need fast C-AF, but would be adequate for those who typically only use S-AF.
