What lenses should be developed for M43?

These are my dream lenses for m43:

1) High-quality 17/1.4.

Sorry, but Oly's new 17/1.8 just aint quite bright enough for me. I want a street lens (17mm is perfect) that doubles as a low-light prime (I want f1.4, like the Panny-Leica 25).

2) High-quality 300/2.8 (or f4)

I like to shoot birds. The current zoom options don't thrill me.

3) High-quality Olympus 12-35 and 35-100 lenses.

The new Panasonic zooms look great, but I don't need their built-in image stabilisation because I shoot with an Olympus body. An Oly version of those lenses should be cheaper, lighter and less bulky without the IS.

4) 7/3.5

An ultra-wide angle prime would be great, even if it's as slow as f3.5. I usually shoot landscapes with a tripod, so slow I'd prefer a cheap f3.5 to an expensive f2.8, as long as it was sharp.

How about you guys?
