  • Ideally, some electronic way to control zoom (so you can zoom without shaking the camera). I've heard some noise that someone in the m4/3s camp was working on lenses like this, but I never followed up to see if it actually happened.

Panasonic G X Vario 14-42mm and 45-175mm lenses announced 3 months ago:

They also have motorised focus and both focus and zoom have low speed settings to help smooth focusing/zoom.
