Preferably with that focus clutch. Olympus has all the pieces, it only has to tie them together. I think panasonic could do it too.

Id love to see that 10mm F1.8 as well.

I am curious as to why lots of you are not happy with a 2 or 2.8/10mm . why do you need a larger aperture . it would make the lens bigger , more expensive.. what do you photograph to need that extra stop for such a wide angle ?

looking forward to a reply for those who do wish this big aperture

More for video and less about photography. I'm fine with F2.8 for photography. Hell, I'm getting by with f2.8 at the wide angle but it would be a nice addition. If be happy with an F2 as well. Not much difference between 2 and 1.8

Thank you for the quick reply . I thought who do video wanted a zoom (hence the pana 1.7/10-25)

a f 2,5 or f2.8 would be better at max aperture than a f1.8

I personally prefer primes over zooms. Its all up to the person of course. Based on other lenses a 10mm F2 or F1.8 should still be very small and light compared to the 10-25 F1.7 beast of a lens. For me the reason for the wider aperture over F2.8 is low light. Ive got a set of primes at F1.4 that serve me very well for low light and Im able to do almost everything I need and keep ISO at 1600 or less. Ive got a Pani 8-18 but I cant really use it at night the way I would like. Its great during the day. My favorite lens is a 16mm F1.4. That tends to do most everything I need.
