Great to hear a Panasonic executive saying that they hear what their customers want and will be bringing out more fast primes. A fast short tele portrait lens can't be far off now.

Sounds like they're focusing on the video capabilities of the next generation GH model, but nothing about the still photo capability. I'm not sure the two are related, but hopefully they'll do something to improve the stills as well. Either that, or come out with a semi-pro version of the GH separately with improved stills capability and not such emphasis on HD video.

why do ppl assume the GF2 will have a built in EVF because they aren't making a new EVF for the GF1? Who's to say they'll use a different connector for higher bandwidth? Maybe that's a limitation in the GF1 design. Or maybe they can't make it backwards compatible for some technical reason.

But regardless, I want to know what primes, and when. We still haven't seen a 14/2.8 we were promised, no?

Just give us a damn 20-28mm equivalent already!

I would love to see a 12/2.8 pancake. It's what the 14/2.8 should have been. I'd would let that slide if they came out w/ a 12/1.4 that was at most twice the size of the 20/1.7, while still not being too much more expensive, assuming excellent wide open shots.
