4/3 lens backward compatibility is transitional, I expect

I expect that any support for 4/3 lenses on m4/3 bodies is transitional, to encourage people who already have expensive 4/3 lenses to buy m4/3 bodies and to help sell the remaining inventory of those lenses. The next phase is Olympus moving towards offering higher level m4/3 lenses. Indeed, this year's 75/1.8 and 60/2.8 macro, along with the launch of the OM-D line, look like steps in that upward expansion of the Olympus m4/3 product range.
Smaller lenses, better in low light, more telephoto reach:
you can have any two at one time.
