    Urm dun anyhow say leh.... Most peeps refer to the Trinities as 14-24/24-70/70-200... As for 200-400, now... hardly a trinity coz it's an f/4.... But of course one of these can buy the entire "trinity" set... VR II of course...

    Lemme make a guess.... the reason for mounting a super zoom on a M4/3 is to capitalise on the extra crop factor right?

    I thought it is :
    1. Cool.. in crowd.. DSLR, so old fashion...
    2. Prefer to use manual focus.. AF mechanism pay and make to look good only, not for use.
    3. Dont like Akerue's camera (Nx10).. bigger sensor dont like.. prefer M4/3.. nicer.
    4. HOW WOULD I KNOW... I not even a GWC level user!!!.. heheheee

    yes i stands corrected

    i think my friend's set was the version 1.0 of the trinity lenses.

    the ones you mentioned was the version 2.2 of the trinity lenses... ROFL

    btw, his 200-400 one is the type can be used on film, DX and FX... the legendary monster... nikon retail price now is S$13k++

    I thought the VRII version is better? Can be used on all as well, and is below 10K?

And if you don't believe me, that same lens you've just pointed out, fetches around 6K + on the BnS market... New VR II IS around 9K+ as Akerue mentioned. A whole LOT Cheaper if you buy it from overseas...

    Luckily your friend didn't try to sell his zoom here at 13K... It will be pretty hard to hold back our cynicisms then...

    I'll bet HK pricing for the VRII is about 8K plus too....
