lens wish list

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).

Re: lens wish list

Something light, bright, weathersealed and cheap :-)

Pete

(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.

Re: lens wish list

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

Cheers,

JohnGG
