(FT3) Deleted from the Panasonic roadmap: The 100-300 f/4.0 X.

A month ago Panasonic unveiled at Imaging Resource that they withdraw the plan to release a high end X zoom lens. Well, one of our anonymous sources told us that the planed lens specs were: 100-300mm f/4. So now I am curious to hear from you guys if you would have been interested to buy such a lens or not:

Would you consider to buy a high end 100-300mm f/4 X lens?

Leopold:Here is an acoustic music video i shot on the GH3 with the SLRMagic 35/1.4 and the anamorphot. It was some kind of a test shooting for upcoming projects i´d like to shoot with my new gh4 which i´ll get soon. I really like the anamorphot, although it´s not easy to handle when shooting in near distances with the diopters. You have to be very careful to stay in focus especially when shooting wide open. But it´s fun and the look is unique! https://vimeo.com/100743835
