Quote:For instance, there are patents which claim to save a few centimetres more... But in the end weight is what I'm more interested and there could be advances in materials, rather than in optics.Of course, Canon has used DO elements in two lenses (70-300 DO and 400mm f4 DO). Both are indeed MUCH shorter than their non-DO counterparts (in fact, the Canon 400mm f4 is shorter than the Nikkor 300mm f4). But the Oly does not use any DO element, so why would it be shorter? That was my point.
