Not many if any decent new lens for our m43 cams?

Is it me or has the pipeline for better and better m43 lens beginning to dry up? We have no zoom faster than 2.8 loner than 100mm? I know the 42.5 and 150 prime are coming but this is a year or more away, meanwhile we here this body and that body?  what about this lens and that lens, surely there is more money to be made in a lens than relentless bodies?

I personally believe the 12-35 should have been a 12-50 f2.8-3.5 and similarly the 35-100 a 50-150 2.8.3.5(4) too. I know they map nicely to the 24-70-70-200 but problem is there is then nothing faster @100mm in m43 world, the next fast glass is the 100-300 f4-5.6, now if they turned that out as a 100-300 f3.5-4.5 then that would be interesting but I doubt that is going to happen any time soon.
