Re: Will we see longer primes?

I would love a longer, fast-ish prime. But to me weight is also a primary consideration, and anything above 1.6 kg needs to be very persuasive.

A 450 f/4 would be appealing. If Olympus could use some of the magic Canon put in their MkIII big whites or the DO technology, it might even be possible to keep it below the 2 kg mark... I am not sure a 400mm or an f/4.5 would be enough. One thing is certain, it would be expensive.

As it was mentioned before (not "longer" but "faster"), the other lens I dream of is a 150/1.8. Considering that the FE mount 135/1.8 is less than 1 kg, it would not be unreasonable to keep it within an acceptable 1.2-1.3 kg

That said, neither of them are likely to see the light. But dreaming is fun
