A new sensor that would give noticeably less noise at higher ISO and of course the kind of photography I do .. Zooms that are 1.2 .. LIke a 12-35 1.2 or a 35-100 1.2 . But I will keep Dreaming.......

Don't expect miracles. 1/2 EV improvement is a maximum we can get I guess. It is also about image processing these days. TruPic 9 is needed.

This time Oly will come out with F4 zooms, which makes more sense, to stress the key feature of the system: compactness without sacrificing IQ.

I have the best F4 zoom so far the OLY 12-100 with camera and lens stabilization but as good as this lens is it still does not cut the mustard in lower light and wedding photography where dark chuches exist and where isolation bokeh is needed....I have the 14-35 2.0 and the 35-100 2.0 which are differently better... but as Panasonic did with it's 10-25 1.7 would it not be absolutely spectacular to stretch these kind of lenses to 1.4 or 1.2 .. But of course her we go again "It would cost Too much" and better yet "it would weigh Too Much" But because Lumix and Olympus make such exquisite pro optics put these kind of lenses on a EMX or Em1MII and M4/3 would start to have equivalence shooting brides as they have for shooting birds....

If you are shooting in a dark cathedral, it's going to be a challenge\r and I daresay you are doing your clients a disservice with m4/3. A wedding is messy and about isolating the subjects and maximizing light. It's where FF and MF shine. You can do it with m4/3, but a Gothic cathedral with motion and the requisite bokeh is going to push the system to its limits.

You might be very surprised with the excellent results in such conditions with the 1.2 lenses.   With the stability of the m4/3 system keeping your ISO under 1600 these lenses give you the just right bokeh and it is interesting none of people I have shot for said I was a disservice to them....
