I'm still considering buying a good telezoom. Has anybody already some experience with the new Panasonic 100-400 mm?

The close focusing at the long end is nice.

just changed from full frame canon 1D and sigma 150-600 sport weighing in at approx 7kg to a Panasonic g80 and a paanasonic/leica 100-400 the new rig weighs in at 1.5kg all up and although I have only had it 3 days I'm totally blown away by the i.q .if your thinking of getting one "just do it " heres a couple of starter shots from today and I still dont fully understand the camera yet so things will improve .all shots hand held on a walkabout

Nice, I have been looking at this lens plus a G9 as a lightweight option, the dual I.S. On the G9 is supposed to be amazing.

all the modern Panasonics have it, my g80 or g85 stateside has 4 axis i.s in body and single in the lens giving five axis i.s ,dont think it works that way if you use a Olympus body though ,but not sure as have only just changed to pano .its certainly helped me as my old gear was holding me back

Yes, I know that some of the newer bodies were claiming up to 5 stops with the dual I.S., I read the G9 claim was up to 6.5 stops with dual I.S., that would be incredible compared to every other camera on the market. I just wonder if it is worth the price premium over the previous generation Panasonics. I am definitely not able to hold a camera as steady as I could when I was younger.

I recently took my Canon 7D mkII and my Sigma 150-600mm to a Zoo, they have a tour through the park on a tram, I was having a hard time holding the camera steady, with the size and weight of camera and lens and the vibration from the vehicle I had to crank my shutter speed way higher to compensate.
