Surprised that I'm not seeing any discussions about this, though I just skimmed. I'm sure many of you have noticed the sinking prices for 4/3 lenses as the system's future looked increasingly circumspect. Now, we're about to see a new camera with a new highly competent sensor that will be able to use this glass very well.

So just maybe, is the HG/SHG glass pricing going to start climbing upwards as demand is revived for these gorgeous lenses?

I have not noticed a major collapse, or sinking, of prices for HG and SHG lenses.  As for the future, my crystal ball is in the shop, so no idea there.  Time alone will tell.
