Hit the nail on the head Oly needs f2.8-3.5 zooms to at least give some DOF isolation. Ideally I would like f2.5 but can live with f2.8. f3.5 how you gonna get 'some' isolation with f3.5?

So far none of the mirrorless systems have not done much for a long lens shooter.

The native lenses are slow, the existing fast lenses don't work well with
CDAF, and the existing PDAF on sensor doesn't match the performance of
SLR's, or give enough control to the user.

I think small sensors SLR's are the best solution for telephoto, but it is not
clear what the future of APS-C will be. Will they be replaced by mirrorless
cameras, leaving just FF SLRs?

Seems like there are still a large number of unknowns, and a bad time to jump
anywhere. If Olympus improves AF in a possible E-7 it could be a good system
to stick with.
