Re: A proper equivelant

Would be a 12-52 f2 and would likely be of a similar size to the Canon lens.  I'm sure Olumpus would have loved to have done a 12-50 f2.8, but again I suspect such a design would have gone beyond their design expectations.

Like Four Thirds, it's harder to design moderate to utltra wide angle lenses than it is for full frame (especially if you want a faster lens - case in point Nikon's 14-24 f2.8 vs Olympus's well regarded 7-14 f4).
