Bright zooms = last priority

What is with all of the 3.5-5.8/6.3 zoom lenses? There's only one 2.8, the 12-35...

I guess I'm sticking to primes...

As others have noted, bright zooms are probably the last priority in the m4/3 lens line up. Not only does the size of it go against many people's view of m4/3's primary area of value, but from a dof perspective, bright zooms really don't add significant capability over and above the already shallow dof that anyone could get with a regular f/5.6 shot. So, arguably, bright zooms'll will primarily add value in the area of exposure latitude..While I find that pretty attractive, I'm pretty sure the "message" of that is lost to the overwhelming audience. Last place on the priority list.

That being said, I can't wait till they roll out some bright zooms.
