Good points Tom. Or say if another manufacturer such as Panasonic, Sigma or others bring out their own 12 mm lens in black with a good quality plastic build at a price of say $699 or $799. Hmmm...

There are three kinds of people in this world - those who can count, and those who can't.

Samyang recently brought out a relatively compact 12/2.0 for $400, no AF tho. Haven't seen much discussion about it here, I imagine many would just choose to spend another $100 on the smaller Oly for AF even if it's used. There's certainly room for Sigma or Panasonic to bring out more wide primes.
