"In that light, I don't think making fast zooms is also the way to go for Olympus in their PEN strategy, but rather take advantage of 4/3 HG zooms by increasing compatibility.

I still firmly believe that PEN's native premium lenses should be fast primes, which I think gives the nice balance of size, weight, light-gathering ability and DOF control. We have lots of slow zooms already for the consumer market."

At last some sense, make the already top notch 4/3rds fast zooms better compatible for those that want as you are not going to get much of a size improvement by making native m4/3rds variants.

No need to throw the baby out with the bath water as they say and the HG and SHG 4/3rds zooms are some of the best zoom glass out there.
