Quote:No, the lens does not have 6.45 stops IS as far as I know. That is a perk of the Olympus camera body.No lens exists in vacuum, the pleasure of using such a lens of course has be assessed in conjunction with the camera.
About 24mm, what do you think "And it goes a bit wider" means?
How fast the AF is totally will depend on the camera body. I thought we were talking about a lens, and that to me $1300 seems steep for what is a FF equivalent f8 zoom.
The lens, combined with the certain camera, does provide a 6.5 stop IS, and too bad no other combinations you mentioned has this. Same goes to AF, same goes to the weight and range.
(Btw, I'm not entirely convinced how fast the AF is will totally be dependent on body)
I agree price is high. But I object the notion that price should mainly be determined by equivalency.
Anw, generally speaking, the value of any object is always a very subjective topic. So it is very common to see different views. Olympus will eventually know if they have succeeded in creating enough value for enough people.
