Re: Why should they be cheap?
In reply to streetphoto, Mar 12, 2011

I tend to agree with you on most of your points and it looks like we better get used to it. The lenses scheduled to be released in 2012-13 are also going to carry high price tags. The group of 9 includes 7 premium quality lenses, one ultra wide zoom (12-24mm f4) and one fast zoom (16-50mm f2.8). None of those will be cheap. As mentioned earlier, the 16-80 zoom is starting to look pretty good. And if it is good, it will satisfy a lot of needs. I had the Olympus 12-60 zoom, which in 4/3 standard has the same zoom range. That was a fabulous lens and I could do 95% of my photography with it. Depending on the type of photography you do the 16-80mm plus 50-200mm or 16-80mm plus 30mm would be very nice and relatively inexpensive duos.
