Cant wait to at least try some of those new lens out.


Update: The Sigma 300-800mm f5.6 "The Sigmonster" will be available for Four Thirds. This one of the longest and biggest SLR lenses available today, and on a Four Thirds camera this would have enormous reach.

Especially that one. Hopefully the price tag doesnt out weight me upgrading my e500 to something a little bit more 'professional'

I have the 135-400 on my sights. apparently soft and slow on both ends, on the 4/3rds this amounts to 270 to 800 and even if i use it only till the 700 equivalent i would be quite happy... along with the 40 -150 i guess it would be well covered .

anyway as proved by greg on a previous thread a lens softness can be well compensated by external shaprening like photoshop to a large extent
