Leica 100-400 resolution (lenstip)
#11
My 2Cents.  I like to hike local trails in Pennsylvania and ride a bike along the NJ shore and combine both with photography.  So, for me, weight and size of the gear are critical.  I had a Canon 5Dmk2 and a Canon 100-400mm L series but it was just too much to carry as I got older.  I currently have two M43 cameras (Pana GX8 and Oly EM1) and my preferred carry tele lens is the Panasonic 100-400mm lens.  The first Pana 100-400 had to be returned because it was not sharp.  The second one is crystal clear and pinpoint sharp.  I mainly shoot birds stationary and in flight and have no problems with the AF-C, speed or accuracy of the Pana 100-400 on the GX8.  It is IMHO, every bit as good as was my Canon 5Dmk2 and the Canon 100-400 lens but it far less weight to carry.  To put this in context I also have a Nikon D810 and several lenses that I use for landscape photography, but it is a load to carry around, and works best when I am driving in the car.  However, must admit, I do love those big sharp image files that it generates.  So to return to my main point, M43 equipment is perfect for someone my age who likes to walk and ride a bike because it is all about size and weight traded against image file size.
