Olympus lens roadmap predictions and wish list
2

I've done some searching around the forum on this topic but only a few discussions turned up. There's so much talk about new bodies, but I personally find it less interesting then lenses.

I'm curious about 1) what lenses people are expecting to see, within the parameters that Olympus has announced, and/or 2) what they would like to see with future lens releases on Olympus's roadmap. We know about the 150-400 F/4.5, and we also know that the following (in the pro lineup) could also be in development:

- Wide Zoom Lens, 8-30mm range, maybe an F2.8?

- Standard Zoom Lens, 12-40mm range, maybe an F1.2 or F1.8?

- Two telephoto zooms, one in the 50-230 range and the other in the 70-250 range - I would venture that the smaller range lens will have a wider aperture

- "Bright prime lenses" between 12 and 60, The 12 1.2 has been rumored, so maybe a 20 1.2 or 60 1.2 as well?

I personally would love to see a bright e.g. F/1.4 or F/1.8 aperture telephoto zoom covering the 70-200 35 mil equivalent focal length.

Looking forward to your responses.
