I'm not sure this isn't a product of how large and optically uncompromised the 4/3s zooms were. It's hard to correct a lens as fully when compactness and light weight are leading priorities.

Large? I don' think they were too large but I agree that maybe we as users did not appreciate fully how good those lenses were.

Compare the size of the Oly 4/3 7-14 to that of the Panasonic m43 7-14, 14-35/2.0 to the 12-35/2.8, 12-60/2.8-4 to the 12-50 and the 300f2.8 to anything and get back to me on that one. These are large lenses, even by APS-C standards.

I never said 'too' large, but for me they certainly are. And they were for the market, as well. Hence m43.
