I´m not so sure about this; if the lens is of good quality, there simply is no equivalent lens in the m43 line...

I really can´t understand why a lens in this range ( eq. 24-120 or 28-140 or 28-200 )

with 2,8-3,5 or 2,8-4 and with high build quality isn´t high on the priority list of Olympus or Panasonic...


I totally agree.

What mFT needs is a small, high quality 2,8-4/12-60mm lens - it could be the size of the old 14-45.

Or just a mFT, fixed lens 2,0-4,0/12-60 and 16MP camera.

But I think, Olympus and Panasonic are afraid this would reduce lens and body sales. Just the way Canon cripple their G1X with a 13MP sensor.
