The new lens on the GX8 (Image courtesy: 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.

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.
