I saw a couple of articles that said it would ship in March. I clicked through for pre-order on one of the main retailers and it said they expected it to start shipping on 03/10. March 10th has coma and gone with no news.

Hmmm, with the strong pound/Euro exchange rate at the moment it is actually some 20% cheaper to buy the 150-450mm from Ricoh France than UK retailers. Wonder if they ship to the UK.

The price in euros of lenses and camera body have a tendancy to raise theses day. When you combine the sale of february when some ltd where at 400 new on Amazon and the rize of prices due to a weak euros, the increase is clearly noticable.

This also means buying used from US because completely uninterresting in particular if you cannot avoid to pay the 30% custom taxes.

I know that sometime prices from UK are better and some seller allow to deliver in France, logically the reverse should be true. And there no customs.

Does anyone know if the minimum focus distance changes as you zoom in? Does it stay a constant 3.94' (1.2 m) across the zoom range?

Sure.....1.2m for all ranges
Best regards

That is awesome and very important for a lot of people. Keeping it under 4' (1.2m) is a big deal.

Your impressions of the lens?
How does it compare, for example, to the Nikon 70-200's?
