Sorry, Jon, you weren't controversial enough to warrant flaming. You didn't call anyone a fanboy or say anything really nasty or claim some other brand as being more superior then everything else ever made.

I don't think that Oly will restrain the performance of their high end 43 glass. They don't have any m4/3 glass that equals it or even comes close (except for a few awesome primes) It is to their benefit to make them perform at their best. They still have stocks of lenses that need to be sold and that 43 glass while expensive is definitely some of the best. Maybe one of these days they'll get around to designing some serious zoom lenses for m4/3 instead of slow kit lenses. And maybe, that time is very soon. We'll see before long.

And yeah, I used to have an E-3 with the 12-60. Miss that camera and lens combo, a lot.

I hope you are right.  I have the 12-60 and 50-200mm and I would love to use them at full speed with a newer sensor.
