The USP more than IBIS should be size. If I was Olympus besides that nice new zoom, I would re-issue all the smaller primes in weather sealed form.

This would be nice for users. I'd like that certainly. But probably doesn't fit Olympus's market positioning strategy. They want you to buy the 1.2 lenses as much for their weather sealing as their better IQ and wider apertures.

Well the problem with the F1.2 primes is that they are also HUGE and pricey (and they just went up in price). I like the option but they should stay as an option, not as a main drive- since they get into the small proposition.

Imagine that 25mm F1.8 weather sealed on an EM5.3... wouldn't that be cool?
