what would the ideal M standard zoom be
1

Well we would all like a 8mm to 800 F0.95 IS macro...with built in 2x multiplier ......pancake lens ....retractable in to the lens cap

but joking aside many would like a faster or better M standard zoom  than the 15-45 f3.5-6.3 or the 18-55 3.5-5.6 .. and now with the 3 Sigma primes the standard zoom is the most laking bit now . but at least it do seem the latest 15-45 have better quality control

the only real enviable standard zoom in the APS-c  world  that still keeps it on the compact ish side  and is optically good is the fuji  18-55F2.8-F4 and lets remember the point of the M is compact ...otherwise you may as well have R mount

Me i would find a 22-85 F3.5-4.5 IS  which is FF eqiv to  approx 35mm to 135mm

I think its a very good compromise  all round ....it possible it should  have very good IQ at only a 3.8X zoom  the zoom range follows on from the 11-22  and F4.5 should not make it to big but at 85mm some OOF background should be in order

so what would your standard zoom be

There is no argument for FF vs APS-c (or m43) with shallow DOF..as it's a law of physics and a very subjective personal thing if you want to make use of the shallow DOF only FF can offer
