another thing to consider with this jack of all trades type lens (aside from it being a master of none) is how similar it kind of is to the mk2 kit lens and all its add-ons for WA, macro, fisheye. in price (if you were to add them all up), size, and versatility / master of none approach. this new lens, with less emphasis on size and more on all in one totality (and weathersealing... like maybe you dont want to switch lenses where you're going) suggests a shift away from the modular approach... in short how can we not see a built in evf from Oly at this point? we were all so sure it'd come with the EP3, and oly must have figured out by now that many were disappointed- no small consideration given high price tag and enthusiast orientation
