Panasonic Lumix Leica 50-200mm Official Release Date
Well that didn’t take long. Panasonic has been doing a really great job of keeping special announcements, products, etc. under wraps. We’ve known for quite some time that they were considering a Leica 50-200mm lens. But until today we had no idea when, or if, it was actually going to be released. Expected release date is May 24th, 2018.
Today Lumix announced the pre-order opportunity for the new Leica 50-200mm F/2.8-4.0 lens. I can’t wait to get my hands on it. As much as I love the 100-400mm, it’s sometimes just too much reach. This is going to fill a huge gap, and if it’s as good as I’ve seen with the 100-400mm and the new 200mm F/2.8, this will be a huge success for Lumix. Stay tuned. Hope to get one of these beauties sooner rather than later.
Check with my friends at Bozeman Camera to pre-order the new 50-200mm Leica. They often have lenses after the big boys have sold out. They currently have the new Leica 200mm F/2.8 in stock.
