If I were heading up Canon USA

and I KNEW an M with a DPAF sensor was coming, I'd hold off releasing this lens.  Then, when the new M with DPAF hits, I'd also release this and the 11-22.

Honestly, this lens, IMO, COMPLETES the M ecosystem (WITH a DPAF M) for the AVERAGE US consumer.

Of course, being able to add the EVF from the G1XII as well as a couple of small primes would help round things out for the rest of us.

This lens is almost EXACTLY what I was saying Canon should shoot for.  A small tele zoom, even with a limited range.  My suggestions were 55-150 or 75-150 and max aperture at f4 or f4.5.  As long as Canon prices this similarly to their other lenses MSRP (not the street price, the MSRP) then I think they have a winner!

Nice job Canon!
