    The 80-400 looks just like Nikon's 80-400VR, though the focusing ought to be faster. The one time I tried a 80-400VR it took 15 minutes to focus from close-up to infinity. This will give Nikon users a great low cost (and faster focusing) alternative.

    Oh lovely, lovely people, they've finally done it. A 120-300/2.8 zoom. Maybe needed to be a bit wider, but finally. Pity that [1] I might not need it [2] digital sensors are going full frame. Ah well.

    Have they mentioned the weight of these lenses? I can't imagine the weight of a 120-300 f/2.8 and the other monster. A fixed 300/2.8 is enough pain for the shoulders to carry around.

    Hi

    oh my goodness so the rumours are true after all??!
    i was worried for a while i might be spreading false rumours in my earlier news postings........

    the 300-800 constant f5.6 looks quite an achievement

    I haven't scrutinised the piccies, but one possibility is that the lenses aren't drawn to scale and the 300-800 just looks like it has a small tripod collar because of its overall size.

    A 300/2.8 heavy to carry around? Nice one. I'm really really not fussed because of this stupid full frame thing now, looks like being back to 400s. Now those are heavy.

    Technically, with a full frame 10+ MP digital image, an out-of-camera cropping can get one a 4MP+ image without loss of quality if printed small, but I doubt whether many pple will do so since it brings a feeling as not original

    Well maybe you are a muscleman? Me, I'm down to a Canonet QL17 rangefinder. Now that's nice.

    You can continue using 1.5 flm cameras. Or get the Sickma SD-9 with an even higher FLM....

    Let me make the first guess. How about $10,000?
