Reviews of Leica 100-400mm Showing Up
Mixed Reviews of Leica 100-400mm
Update of original Update 5/12/2016
The issues I had read about with AF and the new 100-400mm seem to have been solved. I know mine were. Have not heard any concerns in the past few weeks. Only have heard glowing reviews. I think Panasonic has got all issues sorted.
Update: The title of this post used to be Excellent Reviews of Leica 100-400mm Showing up. But I’ve also started getting numerous comments sent to me directly as well as posted here Lumix Diaries: Shooting the New Leica Lumix 100-400mm that are not so positive due to AF issues. Anybody seeing similar problems please add your voice to this post. The good news is I’m beginning to think that any less than positive results at the 800mm setting may be due to AF problems rather than the glass itself. That would be very good news indeed.
The reviews of the new Leica 100-400mm zoom are finally starting to appear across the web. As many of you know I’ve been shooting a non-production version of this lens since early December 2015. It’s been a dream come true for my trips to South Africa, Japan, and Yellowstone. I’ve had great results but I’m not a super technical person, I don’t
do line charts and graphs, but others more qualified do, and a few of those sites have been releasing more technical details. In short, this new lens is being heralded as a legend in the making. Here is a list of web addresses to other websites discussing the new Leica 100-400mm zoom.
