(FT5) More confirmations: Leica 100-400mm announcement in February at Cp+. First small hands-on report.
The 100-400mm lens displayed recently at Salo De La Photo (Image via Focus-numerique).
A second trusted source confirmed the new Leica 100-400mm lens will be announced in February at Cp+ show. And yes the price should be around $2,500 (Panasonic did not share him the exact final price info).
The source also had the final prototype lens in his hand and said he was actually “impressed how small it is” compared of the impression you get from the pictures. It’s close to the size of the 35-100mm X lens.
