M Zuiko 100mm f/2 and...

I grew up with 35mm. Digital saw me move into 4/3 from 35mm. So, I want what traditional 35mm users had:

  • 100mm f/2 for a 200mm equiv
  • 150mm f/2.8 for a 300mm equiv
  • 200mm f/4 for 400mm equiv
  • 9mm f/4, f/3.5 or f/2.8. An 18mm equiv. I always wanted the OM 18mm f/3.5 but could never afford it. I do not want a zoom in this range. I prefer the best design effort Olympus can give a prime wider than the 12mm f/2.
  • 25mm f/1.2. Two other OM lenses I could not afford as a young man were the 55mm f/1.2 and 50mm f/1.2. Give us a high-quality super-fast normal.
