The new Panasonic Leica 100-400mm lens will finally start to ship next week on March 15 according to BHphoto.

Daniel Cox just returned from Japan where he met with the Panasonic Lumix team and spent ten days photographing Japan’s Winter Wildlife. Most of the work was with the Lumix GX8 and the new Leica 100-400mm zoom. You can see the image gallery here http://archive.naturalexposures.com/proofing/C00003nDou.nKOU0/G0000gFSGHEV7FMk
He also produced a short video on shooting the GX8 in some very wintery conditions:

New Panasonic-Leica 100-400mm lens reviews by Daniel Cox and ePhotozine.

ePhotozine tested the lens and writes:

Sometimes there are few choices in certain niches. This Panasonic Leica DG 100-400mm lens fits its purpose very well indeed, at a price which, although high, is reasonable in its class. If we want a high quality optic for sports, birding, wildlife, photo-journalism and other long range applications then this is it. The close focusing that brings closer subjects into range is a bonus.

Daniel Cox posted a new Leica 100-400mm Dual IS test with the Lumix GX8

The new Olympus lens is getting rave reviews for it’s Dual IS with the Olympus bodies so I thought I should try something similar with the new Leica 100-400mm and the GX8. I have given permission for downloading these images in their full size JPEG form. Below is the link and the password for download.
