Any chance of a 8.5mm-17.5mm/f2.8 release?(17-35mm)
3 months ago

I've owned the 14-24mm Nikon(too wide and too short on long end for day to day usage), 24-70mm(most versatile lens) and 17-35mm/2.8.  I rarely used the 14-24 as it is more of a specialty lens but it is absolutely stellar when that range is required.

The Nikon 17-35mm is my go-to lens for a lot of news situations.  I was wondering if there is any chance of Panasonic or Olympus releasing one in the future.  7-14 is close but 35mm is one of my favorite focal lengths.
