Olympus patents a crazy cool 300-500mm f/2.8-4.0 MFT lens!

300-500mm-MFT

Olympus patented a new les design for two crazy cool MFT tele zooms:

1) 300-500mm f/2.8-4.0 MFT lens  (33,8 cm lens lenght)
2) 200-300mm f/2.8-4.0 MFT lens (22,8 cm lens lenght)

For comparison: The current Olympus 300mm f/4.0 PRO lens has a length of 22,7cm. The 300-500mm MFT lens would be 10cm longer. I think Olympus should really bring that one on the market! So let’s make a poll:

Should Olympus make the 300-500mm f/2.8-4.0 MFT lens?
