It looks like Fuji is working on DO primes lenses so m43 will need to do the same.

It will take Fuji a long long time to catch up with MFT in the tele department.

And patents are not final products, it can take years to be released into a final product if ever.

I would agree that there is no rush to get a m43 DO lens released, but m43 does need to start working on these type of lenses if they they are not doing so already.  Otherwise m43 will loose its weight/size advantage for wildlife/sports.
