Panasonic G9 & Leica 200mm f/2.8 announced
#11
Quote:This Pany 200 f2.8 is absurdly expensive and large for what it is:
  • Pany 200 f2.8: 8,75 x 17.4 cm, 1245g, $3000
  • Canon 200 f2.8: 8.38 x 13.72 cm, 765g, $750
Let me fix that for you Wink
  • Pany 200 f2.8: 8,75 x 17.4 cm, 1245g, $3000
  • Canon 200 f2.8: 8.38 x 13.72 cm, 765g, $750
  • Canon 400 f5.6: 9 x 25.6 cm, 1250g, $1250
Doesn't change much about the conclusion, though. Yep, insanely expensive, even though it comes with a free TC...

- and it's a LEICA-badge on it... I'm surprised they didn't just double the price  Wink
  I would be surprised if they hadn't already tripled it!  :o 

 

 

   With the camera being the size it is, they could have squeezed in an APS-C sensor at least....... realistically is it any smaller than the X1D?

 

    Panasonic is testing the price waters here!

   Thanks JoJu!

 

       Yep, unbiased and non controversial,  fanboy free and will not offend even the most sensitive of beings......

 

    truly one of my finest master-strokes of diplomacy!  Tongue

 

 

   How the hell do you get rid of these unfilled posts?  :unsure:

 

    MST where are you when we need you so?

Regarding comparing with the Canon EF 200mm f2.8 L II:
  • It makes sense to compare it, because the same focal length and max. aperture, should give a comparable price
  • Still not fair to compare it, because that Canon lens is a really old lens, with a really deflated price. A new Canon EF 200mm f2.8 L IS USM would not cost $750. Probably also not as high as $3000, though  Wink
Regarding the EF 400mm f5.6 L USM:
  • Makes sense to compare it because it is equivalent (don't let Wim hear that)
  • Not fair because that Canon is also really old, with a really deflated price. A new Canon EF 400mm f5.6 IS USM would not cost $1250.

Someone said the "equivalence" code?  Huh
 
:lol:
 
Quote:When it launches in January 2018, some functions on the 200mm F2.8 will not be compatible with the Panasonic GH5, and a firmware update slated for March will take care of that.
 
Whhhuuuut? I read "we don't care about existing cameras and their users, if you need that lens, get a new camera to use it early"  <_< Not exactly a slick move...
#20
Must be a very complex software issue that they need to solve to get that lens to work  :lol:
