Default Panasonic Leica 100-400 zoom early April

The Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmar 100-400 F4-6.3 telephoto zoom will be available in early April at a price of $1799.99 and can be preordered at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto & Panasonic online.

There have been some hands-on previews of early production models, Sounds very promising so far exceptionally fast auto focus, accurate and extremely sharp. It focuses as close as 1.3 meters or 4.2 feet and a lot lower price than first rumoured.
Looks like this lens is going to some real competition for the Olympus 300mm f4 Pro.

I'm defiantly leaning towards the Panasonic now.

I agree, the Panasonic offers more reach and at a more reasonable price and if history is any indicator the fact they put the Leica name on it means the IQ s/b excellent.
