Who's Interested in a Special Run of WA Four Thirds lenses?

My biggest dissapointment with the E-1 system is the abslolute lack of wide angle prime lenes in Four Thirds.  Olympus has the 8mm fisheye then jumps to a 25mm f/2.8 pancake lens.  Nothing in between.  Ditto for Sigma.

Now on the MICRO Four Thirds side Olympus  has:

M.Zuiko Digital 17mm f1.8

M.Zuiko Lens 12mm f2.0

I would buy these lenses if Olympus made them for Four Thirds.

I don't want a zoom and I don't want a mirrorless camera.

I just want fast prime WA lenses for my E-1

Why can't Olympus make a limited run of the 17mm f/1.8 and the 12mm f/2 lenes in Four Thirds?  It's ust a mount change, right?

Would you buy one if they were made?

Or would you prefer a 14mm f/2 lens in Four Thirds?

I wounder if enought folks asked if Olympus would make a special short run of these lenses if Olympus would do it.

What do you think?
