Re: That design is near perfect.

I hope for:

ISO100 (and not one that originally is ISO 200 and extended please!)

1/8000 or 1/16000 s shutter. So fastlenses can be used in bright light more often.

These 2 reasons are precisely why the OM-D doesn't interest me.

I was using my 45mm 1.8 over the weekend, but I could never use it wide open because it was too sunny!

Using it wide open is the reason why I bought this lens in the first place; it's a portrait lens! What are Oly and Pana thinking? Especially given their bodies start at either 160 or 200 ISO. Sure, one can use ND filters, but it's so inconvenient.

Back in the film days the lenses were just as fast but the top shutter speed was only 1/1000 for the most part. Leica really impressed us for their 1/2000 shutter speed on the SL.

We used ND filters but mostly we didn't think of trying to use f1.4 or 1.2 in bright sun.
