Re: is there a 50-200 lens native for micro fourthirds yet?

It's worth bearing in mind the FT conf seems to have gone stark, staring mad, and what you hear there are not rumours but paranoia and fantasies.
Out here though, things are more rational.
The Oly has a Sony sensor.
Sony has PDAF on some sensors.
Oly have said they want to get the lenses working properly.
Oly have promised to integrate the systems.
The OM-D is over a year old.
So, I'm expecting a camera with PDAF on sensor.  Possibly the E-M6, perhaps something else.  Within a year I'd say.

I think they probably will get the lenses to work right, but I'm tired of operating on rumors for the past few years. Oh well, I'll just enjoy the equipment the way it is. The lens adapter should let me use, albeit slow focus.
