How long do you think it will be until a prime native M43 lens that is 200mm or longer?
I am hoping to see one from Olympus at some point, but I don't expect anything before 2014 unfortunately. What I expect is that they will continue to add to their pro quality prime lineup until they eventually work their way up to something like a 200 f/4 or similar.
Right now our best hope for a good long-lens is for Panasonic to continue their trend with pro-quality zooms, perhaps even to the point of making a 4-lens series. Something like:
I am certainly holding out some small hope that their announcement rumored for this week will indeed be something like a 70-200 f/4.
I can dream can't I?
I am certainly hoping for Olympus to come out with a fast prime longer than 100mm with f-stop of around f/2.0, but agree that it will be a pretty long wait. However, if they do come out with the fast 12-60 as rumored, it might be a sign that they will come out with a native version of the 50-200 f/2.8-4.0 soon. I'd love to see that.
As for Panasonic, haven't they already announced the 35-100 f/2.8? So your suggested four lenses might actually be covered by 3 zooms. If they come up with a 100-300 f/2.8, I'll jump all over it, but if it's a 100-300 f/4.0, it's pretty tempting also...
Oops, yeah. I got confused.
Should have been a 3-lens series of zooms:
100-300 f/4 or 5.6, or even 4-5.6 as long as it is a true pro-level lens with pro level results.
