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 [shoplink 25103]45-175mm ($290)[/shoplink] 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!
