Overall, I have all that I need. Sensor, and especially pixel density is more than enough for me. My EM1.2 should hold me for a very long time. My PL 8-18 and Oly 12-100 is really all I need 😃

As for lenses, the Oly 100-400 does peak my interest, especially since it will have dual stabilization. If it has good close focus, like 0.2x, that would make it very attractive since it could make a good flower, butterfly, dragonfly lens.

I got to shoot PanaLeica 100-400 for a few days and I absolutely loved its close focus capability. On paper it's supposedly worse than Olympus 75-300 and not much better than 100-300 (which I own) but in practice I found it quite a lot better.

So if Olympus could get similar close focusing in their 100-400, that would be sweet.

1:1 crop (this was not at its closest focusing distance, though)

I owned the Oly 75-300 but it had very poor close focus of 0.1x, so eventually sold it for the Oly 40-150 Pro.

I would have am interest in a 125mm macro lens.

Me too

I would sell my 40-150 Pro for that one. Olympus does have a patent out for a 100mm macro lens but that does hot interest me. Too close to my 60mm macro and 12-100.

I would settle for that, since I could get 140mm and 200mm with teleconverters out of it. And I only have 30mm macro (which I like quite a bit).
