500mm f5.6

I found the P/L 100-400 at 400mm to be sharper than the Canon 400 f5.6 with Metabones, and of course far more versatile.

For as long as I had Nikon I always wanted the 200mm F2 so a 100mm F1 or maybe F1.2 would be freaking awesome. Of course, don't think I could afford it but one can dream.

Imagemaster, you're really making the PL100-400 shine.

A 100 f/1 would have the same 100mm front element as your 200/2 so it would be very close to the same size.


I would be all in for a 100mm f/1.2 or f/1.0, although I would expect it to come in ~$8000.

Ditto on Tony's 500mm f/5.6.

A 400 F/4 would do nicely.

200/2.8: the missing FL
We have 150/2.8
We have 300/4

A 100-200 zoom will be great, if its fast and small both.

200/2.0 would be nice. Both Canon and Nikon has a 200/2.0 so Olympus should be able to make one.

They could, after all they did make a 250mm f2 in the film days. I think my Dad had one (either that or a 350 2.8 I can not remember).

I almost got an old Nikon 200 f2 AI a few years ago when I had some money for gear but went for something else instead.

I would love a Canon FD 200 1.8 to play around with.

I had the FT 150/2 lens for a couple of months. It's an amazing, but I sold it because it's just too hefty for me. The lens is not that heavy i.e. very hand-holdable but it takes up too much room in a backpack and the weight quickly adds up.

200/3.4
300/4

You didn't see it because our posts had crossed.

Good point about the 300/4. Could it be that they have patented a Canon DO or Nikon PF type of lens to reduce the weight and make it even lighter than the PL 100-400 lens?

And I would not be happy with a 200/3.4 - I would rather have a 200/2 prime.

Bobby my mistake its not 200/3.4
Its 200/3.2
Not bad I say if that helps make it small
