well f1 on m43 is not that difficult
In reply to nick_webster, May 13, 2011

as we've seen with the, what is it, the Nokton 25mm 0.95, this is nothing out of this world in the m43 world (and it's easy to see physically with the lens looking long and narrow, rather than like a REAL fast lens - because it's only f1.9 in 35mm terms.

so a 60mm f1, why not.

again - I'm VERY happy with the already legendary Nikon 85mm f1.5 G coupled to my d7k. But while I use this, I keep an eye open for when... Right now I think m43's fastest manufacturer lens is a Leica/Panasonic f1.4 which is just f2.8 in 35mm terms, is expensive, and doesn't even have good reviews...

so yeah, we're not quite there yet - but we're getting close!
