An anonymous source (Thank You!) sent me the link to a canadian website named Photoprice (Click here). It shows the Panasonic Lumix G Vario 45-150mm f/4-5.6 HD OIS.
This is the fourth “normal” zoom lens after the 45-200mm ($240 here at Amazon) the 45-175mm ($290) and the Olympus 40-150mm ($280) lens. And I honestly don’t see the reason for that new release. I was hoping for a sort of very compact zoom lens but as we see this is not going to happen. And it’s not even a fast lens. So either this lens is incredibly cheap, either it is expensive but with a superb quality or either Panasonic simply did something wrong Let’s see what happens on next Wednesday (July 18th) when Panasonic is officially going to announce it along the G5 and LX7!
