Oly 17 f/1.2 is coming...

Look here:

http://www.43rumors.com/ft5-leaked-first-image-new-olympus-17mm-f1-2-pro-lens/

And as I already feared, it will be much too big (at least for me).

Not too expensive, mind you, just too big. I'm willing to pay big bucks for small high quality primes like the 75 f/1.8 or 15 f/1.7 or 12 f/2 (but with f/1.4 or f/1.2).

And yes/no, the PL 12 f/1.4 is already too big for me, especially when I compare it to the Fuji 16 f/1.4, which is designed to cover a larger image sensor with a 3:2 ratio (i.e. less "squaring the circle" than 4:3).
