Quote:Pro lenses aren't often heavy because of the optical components but because of the construction.The nice thing is that mFT now finally has some choices for the traveler ranging from expensive "pro" zooms like this one and the announced panaleica's (e.g., 12-60 F2.8-4) and the cheaper and much lighter consumer zooms from Pana and Oly. The format is starting to become really attarctive, to me at least.
I'm sure you could put the 28-300L into a plastic housing with a total weight of less than half of the current lens.
The 12-100mm could certainly be shaved by at least 150g using consumer-grade housing.
