Quote:The Fuji 100-400mm is longer than the Canon 100-400mm/Sony 70-400mm/Nikkor 80-400mm and just slightly less heavy.Wouldn't the shorter flange length of the fuji body result in a longer lens (for the same optical design)?
In terms of "brickness" we really have to compare the physical focal length & speed, not the equivalent one.
The Leica 100-400mm is almost tiny in this comparison just to mention. Makes me wonder whether the Fuji is actually a full format lens ...
And I was talking about the size of the foot of the tripod mount, not about the ring or something.
It is a little disappointing they couldn't have kept the size and weight down. Pushes me towards the Leica.
