Ah yes, I tend to forget that one. Version I (non-sealed) was very popular if I remember correctly.

I wish there was something realy small like the 20mm or the 12-32...

People - at least on this forum - have been asking for small weather sealed primes for years now. So far no luck.

Would be nice but I don't think they would be willing to pay extra for that weather sealing. Many - at least on this forum and others - think that pretty much everything is already too expensive...

In several cases I've not even been willing to pay extra for electronics.

Of the last five primes I've purchased, two have been m4/3 manual lenses (Laowa 7mm and Meike 4mm), two have been adapted-film lenses (Zuiko MC 50mm f/3.5 Auto-Macro, Zuiko MC f/1.8), and the fifth was a second hand m4/3 300 f/4 (which is weather sealed, but definitely doesn't count for this discussion). I'm very tempted by the TTArtisan 35mm f/1.4, which can be had for about US$70, but I'm resisting.
