Default ,,,,,,,,,,,, well, maybe

I once spent $1700 to buy a couple (14-54 & 50-200) lenses on the same order.

Maybe this combo will tickle me some and what will be the 'special' 1.4 TC (will it not work for other m43 lenses)......

I will likely wait for Greg C's report.

It will be a 'looker' of a lens if that counts ==> http://tinyurl.com/psujao2

I've seen anywhere from $1,200-$1,500 as what they believe it'll sell for here in the US.

The credit card is warmed up, only waiting for the call from Arlington Camera that they have it. I'm #1 on their waiting list. It was sounding like it's not going to be until early 2015, but I'll go over there as early as.....tonight, if they were to call me. I'll let you know Bob. You know you'll be welcome to meet me there to pick it up and take it out immediately for some test shooting

That'll work; I can pick it up (save you a trip after work) and give you a call when I finish testing; a week or so to do a review. You will be getting the 1.4 TC too; huh.

I reread the ad ..... it will be a 'special' kit to include a 1.4TC.

Anyway this is the 1st mention of a m43 TC I've read of.

Yeah, first I've seen too. The announcement must be happening almost any day.

You can bet I'll call A/C and get my name on the list for the TC too.

....Save me a trip huh...... LOL

Sounds like the hood for the 40-150 is going to be retractable (maybe like the 60mm f2.8?) and the TC will only work with the 40-150mm f2.8 and 300mm f4.

Looks like an announcement tomorrow at some point.

And two more info about the 40-150mm PRo lens: The lens hood for the 40-150…it slides back over the lens body! Slick! 1.4 TC will only work with the 40-150 2.8 and the 300mm f/4.
