What lens would you most like to see Olympus make?

I'll start it by saying that I would like

25 or 30mm F1.8 or 1.4 for low light work
100mm Macro lens F2.8
12-240mm F2.8 -F3.5
18-180mm F2.8 - F3.5 an ideal walkabout lens

A 180-400mm f3.5 - f5-6 SWD in the High Grade range to compliment the 50-200.

And the 100mm macro that's been pushed back at least twice on the lens roadmaps.

Prime 50mm f/1.2 or rather 25mm for 50mm (35mm EFL).

If they made all the lenses I really wished for ...... I still couldn't afford them:)

Something light, bright, weathersealed and cheap :-)


(The bright ones are expensive. The weather sealed ones are heavy. The cheap ones are light but not bright or weathersealed.... sigh)

Realistically? A range of lightweight, sealed and collapsible lenses to complement the Olympus and FourThirds ideal of portability.

Roll on the much delayed 100mm macro but let's have a maximum aperture of f/2.0 since we know Olympus can deliver on bright macro lenses, witness the OM Zuiko 90mm f/2.0 which is a superb lens.

A weather-sealed SWD replacement for the 11-22 that went a bit wider, say 8.5-20mm f/2.8-3.5 and a range of bright, wide primes for ultimate quality that would be in the spirit of the OM Zuiko 21 & 24mm f/2.0 lenses but, again, just a bit wider.

A tilt & shift lens of about 12-14mm focal length as I am very envious of the Canikon guys in that area.

A 40mm f/1.4 portrait prime and a 67.5mm f/2.0 as well.

Update the autofocus to SWD for the long zooms and primes that don't currently have it (not that I'm ever likely to be able to afford them :().

Nothing much to ask for :)
