I have no experience from the 30, it may be excellent. I'm sure Sigma could make a good 12 if they want, I know they have some very fine lenses, but I´m not interested in a 12/2,8, which was the question. I hope they will make some real good m4/3 zooms!

I'd like to see a "DN" version of their 17-70 f2.8-4.0.  It would be a little large, in size somewhere between the 12-50 m4/3 and 12-60 4/3 lenses.  I bet they could get the weight down around 400g with the updated version without HSM.  It's a decent lens for the price, and I think the 34-140 equivalent would actually be pretty useful.

Agree! I had that lens to my 40D. A very good lens. And the could make a m43 version of the 8-16 as well.
