Lots of sample wildlife shots with the G9 + 200mm/f2.8 Leica lens.
Good sharpness even with the 1.4x TC mounted.
G9 image quality, color, DR etc. looks excellent IMO.

Almost forgot that one, rumor seems pretty confirmed now?

Might explain the sudden price-drop in the current GH5.

Even more options to consider...:eek!::-O

G80+100-400 is a bit tempting, but the light around here is not always the best. It's often a struggle even at f4 and ISO3200 on full frame.
BUT it would be nice to have something lighter since I'm a...

Always read the fine print.

There are some minor restrictions to it like using single point of focus and a specific lens, leica 12-60mm at the wide end (f2.8). o:)

See the press release:

Maybe, but expectations must be very high. G9 does 20fps in AFC mode. Not much room for error or hesitation there. ;)

That viewfinder looks pretty addictive. Don't try it..;)

Still no phase-detect, but a f2.8 lens will definitely help in AF-speed though.

I'm sure the 200/2.8 Leica will be a very sharp lens, but...

Ok, seems logical, portability is important and Dual IS/OIS will definitely beat the sigma. Hope you get a good copy this time. :t:

Didn't you swap to Nikon because of a faulty 100-400mm leica that you never got back from service?

What do you hope to gain with the G80 + 100-400 combo vs the D500-100-400 sigma? Less weight and...

Guess or rumor?
Canon have a 200mm/2.8 L that is around $700-800 (non IS). Would be about the same size of the glass etc. 3 times that would be a bit high IMO.
