Well Brian,

as long as it features a JPEG engine on the level of the Fujis and makes another step forward in the C-AF area I'll buy it right away. And the same arguably applies to the 17 1.8 too - although I'm massively annoyed by the fact that we get the next lens on pro level that isn't sealed. With the 17 in my bag, I'll have a sealed camera but just one sealed lens - the somewhat mediocre 12.50. while all my precious primes 17/25/45/75 won't be sealed. I just don't get this strategy.

Why not - if there's enough space on the sofa...

I'm with you Don, I wonder whether the success of the weather sealed E-M5 will lead to an upgraded set of weather sealed primes to go with the high(er) grade OM-D in development.

Not a nice thing to do to the fans who've already bought the 12mm f2, which is expensive enough to warrant weather seals right now imho.
