    Kenko Tokina 300mm F6.3 mirror lens

    Kenko Tokina is releasing their new 300mm F6.3 mirror lens for micro four thirds on May 25th.

    Are you planning to buy one? How do you think it compares with the Olympus 75-300 and Panasonic 100-300 lens?

    I will probably buy one if they bring out an E mount version for the NEX cameras. The MTFs are awesome for a mirror lens.

    I have a small 250/5.6 mirror lens in T mount. Very low contrast like most of the mirror lenses.

    Kenko's would turn out to be the one of the best mirror lenses ever, it looks like.

    I am eager to see some real world samples of the Tokina 300 to see if it actually delivers as promised.

    It doesn't compare, since it doesn't autofocus. If it did I'd be interested, since it is 3/4ths of the weight of the M.Zuiko 75-300mm. But for birds in flight (which is what I hope to do with the OM-D) manual focus will not be effective.
