New Crazy Patents: Olympus 300-500mm and 200-300mm f/2.8-4.0 MFT Lenses

hopefully it will be out soon, and not as expensive as the 300 mm f4 prime.

If they ever make any of these two, they will be more expensive than the 300 f4, simply because with that fast f-numbers (f2.8 for both lenses at shortest zoom) they will both need a lot of glass. I suspect that the 3-500 will be a really heavy thing too.
