Fast, high quality, and long zooms are going to be BIG, heavy, and costly. They are not compatible with m4/3's strength. I have some modest goals:

WA primes that are good and 9-18 mm/f4?
25/1.8 OIS
35-100/3.5 OIS?

? 9-18 F4....we already have a 7-14 and another one is coming.
25 f1.8....Is alreadyt here.
35-100 F2.8 or F3.5...what is the big difference.

Some of my posts were cut off. I also wish one can give us a 10/2.8.

Many people would love to use a 9-18 mm lens as a walk around lens. For this to happen, it has to be cheap (

25mm is a nice all around focal length for the platform but for Panasonic users who shoot videos, there is no OIS prim lenses in the 14-25 fl that has OIS. Considering how small/cheap/good the Oly 25/1.8 is, I think it is totally feasible to make a small compact 25/1.8 OIS lens and not paying no more than the 25/1.4.
