I can only rejoice at this news reporting Olympus patents for f1.4 lenses:

My wish list to make them unique in a crowded MFT lens market:

- much smaller/lighter than f1.2 series

- aperture ring like the Panasonic 15mm/1.7

- Olympus manual focus clutch mechanism and focus scale

Currently, as far as I know, nobody else offers this in MFT yet, and it would make manual operation a full option on MFT (I know there are Voigtländer lenses, but they’re big and heavy...)!

Very few patents make it through to products.

Having said that, my wish list coincides exactly with yours.

We need more pancake lenses at 1.4.
