I think fisheyes have quite big following in the "prosumer" market. Like almost everyone who does extreme sports shooting. I think this quite a good filed for panasonic to tackle.

I use fisheyes for landscape also. I just can't affod them on all my systems :)

How many professional (or other) photographers do you think would use m4/3 as their system of choice for extreme sports shooting?

Panasonic didn't even shoot their all action G2 ad using their own cameras. Canons were used instead!

Also I can't say I've seen a lot of landscape work shot with a fisheye.

I wasn't saying people don't use them, but in the context of a lens system this might be considered a "luxury" item.

Oh, I agree entirely that there are/were more pressing prime lenses needed in the Panasonic lineup -- Something faster in the 12-14mm range, something faster in the short tele range. For 98% of uses fisheyes are just a gimmick.
