Completely disagree.

First, there is still no fast (f1.4 and below) 50mm – 85mm lenses in u4/3 lens line-up. You can buy Minolta Rokkor 50mm f1.4 for about 100-150$ and can make great portraits, which no current lens can achieve.

Second – most of legacy lenses are FF derivatives. You still have no interchangeable mirror less FF camera at the market. When it will be – than the game will start.

And the last – prices for legacy lenses doubled and tripled for the last several years. This is not a symptom of dying market…
