Re: Nothing new from Olympus at Photokina, but...

Actually I feel we are a bit let down by Olympus in the mid range zoom options. There are some excellent mid priced primes and some excellently priced low end zooms. The 12-50 springs to mind as one of these but at F/6.3 at the long end it is just a bit too slow. Not everyone needs F/2.8 (price and size spring to mind), but a 5x to 8x zoom that goes from F/3.2 at the short end to F/4.8 at the long end would be ideal. Something just a tad up from Panasonic's 12-60 F/3.5-5.6 or a stop brighter than Oly's excellent 40-150mm and 14-150mm which both tail off at F/5.6.
