The upcoming Zuiko PRO lenses - any thoughts?
9 months ago

Here's a video of the Zuiko 40-150/2.8 PRO (a mockup sample), scheduled for 2014:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=afSjAVM8wBU

At the end of the video he speaks about the other two PROs that are in the wings, stating that an UWA zoom is coming, along with a super-tele zoom (!). The UWA zoom is already on the Olympus roadmap (w/o any given specs), and that map also shows a super-tele lens, but supposedly a fixed FL lens...?

Oly 2013 roadmap

What is your take on this?
Any suggestions for lens specs?
I hope the guy on the video is right about the tele lens. I want it to be a long bright zoom.

My wish-list:
Zuiko 7-14/2.8 PRO (less retrofocal and thus way smaller than the current 4/3 7-14/4.0)
Zuiko 150-350/4.0 PRO (at F4 still fairly compact and lightweight)

This will make out for a gapless PRO coverage from 7-350, all with bright CDAF optimized lenses, to go w/ the the versatile range of different m4/3 bodies. Would be a heck of a kit, no?
