Re: That design is near perfect.

Back in the film days the lenses were just as fast but the top shutter speed was only 1/1000 for the most part. Leica really impressed us for their 1/2000 shutter speed on the SL.

We used ND filters but mostly we didn't think of trying to use f1.4 or 1.2 in bright sun.

Sure, but the reason for wanting to shoot wide-open with MFT is to reduce DOF as much as possible. Remember, you loose 2 stops compared to film.

A 25mm at f/1.4 with MFT corresponds to a 50mm f/2.8 in the film days, so given the shallower DOF with film one didn't have the need to use lenses as wide-open as it's the case with MFT.
