Who else has fixed f/2.0 zooms covering 28-70, and 70-100mm, that are of unparalled quality?

Well, Nikon doesn't have f/2.0 equivalents of those lenses but it does offer its own f/2.8 pro equivalents that are of superb quality.  And both the weights and prices of the equivalent lenses are comparable.  The Oly 35-100mm weighs 1650 g and costs US $2500; the Nikon 70-200mm weighs a little bit less at 1540 g and also costs a tiny bit less, US $2400.  The Oly 14-35mm weighs 900 g and costs  US $2300, while the Nikon 24-70mm weighs the same (900g) and costs significantly less, US$1900.  Of course, when you start carrying around behemoth lenses of that weight, you are now in DSLR territory and have sacrificed the basic MFT goals of SMALL and LIGHT.
