Right, but way back in the film days the GR was typically f2.8.

Whilst accepting the point very willingly I must note that there is a huge difference between a f1.9 and a f2.8.

Especially in a GR lens.  After painfully getting the GRD up to a GR-level f1.9 might we throw this away for a larger sensor.  I guess we might.

I once compared the GX100 to the GRDIII in low light at a circus.  The GRDIII worked quite well in the circus lighting catching acrobats in mid air movement - the GX100?  Ha ha he he chortle, you can imagine .... not even at the highest ISO in b&w, forget it.  Similarly a f2.8 lens on the best dslr with aps-c and even FF is "just making it" in theatre and circus lighting situations.  f2.0 is quite acceptable.
