Newest Image of the Coming 100-400mm Leica/Lumix Zoom
I recently found a video shot at the recent Fotomässan 2015 photo show in Sweden that is showing what I’m guessing is a prototype of the coming 100-400mm Leica/Lumix zoom. All audio is in Swedish so it’s impossible to understand what is being discussed. But…. they do visit the Panasonic booth—which is quite substantial by the way—and talk about several Lumix products, one of them being the 100-400mm Leica/Lumix zoom.
More important is a sample of this lens in the hands of the Panasonic rep. The metal, the finish, the overall look certainly does suggest what I’ve been hoping for, a followup to the fabulous 42.5mm F1.2 Leica lens already in my camera bag. The 100-400mm looks like they stuck with the same design and overall fit and finish. That bodes well for the optical performance as well. It’s gorgeous!
