I agree, but we seem to be in the minority, as few seemed to agree in this thread (although that was for a zoom, so maybe a prime would fare better.)

Why not re-design the 17/2.8, the oldest and weakest of the lineup, and make it weathersealed. It seems unlikely we will get another compact zoom anytime soon, but maybe a prime. I wonder how many sales Olympus has lost to Panasonic over the 20/1.7? A w/s prime to compete with that would probably get some attention, but the performance would have to match also.
