I suspect the announcements today, with the updated roadmap, a confirmed time window for the 150-400mm lens, and the webcam beta are a message to say we are listening, and still here.And here was silly old me thinking that dear old Olympus was as dead in the water as an upside down duck ... .
Agreed, especially as it will be weather sealed, the 8-25 f4 Pro looks like a possible replacement for my 9-18, especially if it'll take standard screw-in filters. Waiting for the 100-400.I certainly could be a buyer of the 8-25mm F4, to partner my 12-45mm. Have the 9-18mm, keep looking at the 7-14mm, but not taken the plunge yet.
Yes, they need to finish the f/4 trinity.It looks as though the bottom end of one goes down to 40mm ish. So perhaps they are looking at a 40-150 F4, or a 50-250 F4, and are doing market sounding to decide which one to go with.
Not a hard and fast thing here but approximate minimum diameters on the front element can be determined by Lens FL divided by aperture.A 50-250/4 is going to be big glass. There’s already the 40-150/2.8 with TC.
