It's unbelievable what people mean to need ... there were times when a 28mm lens and a 50 mm lens and a 100 mm lens were high-professional ..... now we have 300 with TC 2.0 = 600 mm = 1.200 mm FF and that is not enough..

... more more more ... bigger bigger bigger .... faster faster faster .... more expensive more expensive more expensive ...... higher higher higher ...... that can not be the solution.....

IMHO it's more a reflection of a mature system with all the basics covered (various forum discussions of standard zooms aside) and now a good deal of expansion is via specialty lenses and cameras. The first few years of m4/3, I doubt anybody would have predicted the E-M1X orGH5 or Nocticron or 300 Pro, but now they're accepted as parts of the landscape. It also cannot be overemphasized the lengths to which advanced users are pushing m4/3 gear, so much more capable it now is.

A super-tele prime does not mean we won't also see other, less-unique lenses. But there will only be so many standard zoom
