So when will it be in the shop the 70-200. I can pre-order it everywhere, but no one has stock.

Wait whats not impressive? Also, if you choose highest youtube quality and full screen, you can see the lens fairly clearly in a couple frames. Seems to be a decent performer, at least as good as the current Tamron of same zoom range (and it better be!)

It wasn't enough about the lens.... we need details. It was a nice piece of post processing however, not that that had anything t do with the lens. All I could think about was how nice it would have been if he'd snapped off another photo of the back of the truck, in focus and pasted into the frame on top of the OOF truck. It could have been a keeper.

Ah okay lol. Yep, the review (if you can even call it that) was really short and I was a bit surprised by the long photoshop bit as well. Im anxious for a more in depth review as well

It's a good video, don't look for a technical test of the lens in it.

That video was posted May 26. It's old and not very informative.

Plus surely he could have used a better location to do the shoot than a public toilet in a park.

The portrait picture from this little video has been circulating at least as long as the announcement of this lens has been out. So it's even older than end of May

The 70-200 will be delayed to the autumn. Ricoh will make a statement around this soon.

Different marked. Its technical adjustments. They want it to be the best one possible for the FF.
