We need similar in the m4/3s range.

The Online Photographer: The Most Desirable Cameras on the Planet

The Most Desirable Lens Line on the Planet: The Olympus Zuiko Digital Super High Grade line. There are only six of them; two are primes, but both primes are extreme telephotos. But I think they're the finest lenses for photography money can buy at this point. We'll be posting a user report on the two best Zuiko Digital Super High Grades on Monday.
Cheers

I agree, OzRay -

I would certainly love to have a high-quality autofocus 150 or 300 that integrates well with the µ43. While were at it, it would also be great if Olympus would give us an E-µ1 when they announce the successor to the E-3.

In my fantasy, it would be reduced in size (just slightly larger than a G1 or GH1) but would have all of the controls and general specs of the E-3++.

I'd like a 14-35mm f2 and 35-100mm f2 equivalent. On the E3 front, I don't think a G1 sized body woud go well with the 4/3s lenses, they need a reasonably sized body to balance well. I've got all the super high grade zooms and I wouldn't want anything much smaller than the current E3. What I would like is an integrated grip, which would reduce the size somewhat and give a much better handling camera.

I've always wondered, but never knew anyone who's had the upper end of "expensive" lenses...

is the image quality that much better? or are they mainly bought for the faster & constant F stop?

Both. The quality is outstanding, especially when shooting wide open, which you just can't get with anything else and as indicated, these lenses will keep performing as the sensor technology improves. But the high grade lenses are also extremely good, as I've had them as well.

I would love to see these in M4/3 as well

Unfortunately I don't beleive it will happen, I think Oly would see a conflict between regular 4/3 and M4/3, the way I read Oly marketing is that M4/3 will be a stepping stone to a DSLR, secondly I wonder how big F2 M4/3 lens would be and would it negate the size form.

Of course I hope I am wrong

Here's the review: The Online Photographer: Olympus ZD 14-35mm and 35-100mm f/2 Zoom Lenses

If we could get the same lenses in m4/3s, I think I'd sell my 4/3s versions right away.

Cheers
