Why lose money an an already extremely good lens when it's replacement appears to be "just as good but no better".

As much as I like my Olympus lenses I see no point in 'switching' in this case, but that's just me.

Kind regards

I very much agree with this, the only other issue may be focus speed but I doubt it. I'd be chuffed to have either.
