well here is what I hope happens. I also own some Pentax Limited primes and they are very well build (all metal ) I would love to see either oly or pana make a couple of really well made primes. I personaly have not checked out the pana 40mm 1.7, my problem with that lens is the focal length. I own the oly 17mm 2.8 and it is ok, but the build quality is not ( too much plastic ).I too would love to see a really fast prime for m4/3. And I really hope they can build lenses in more quality material. The cheap plastic feeling in the Olympus lenses (Panasonic lenses too?) really disappoints me.... Also the manual focusing wheel on the Oly lenses suck. But I have to say I compare all lenses to rangefinder lenses, so I am probably spoiled.
Maybe Voigtlander can make some m4/3 lenses in 2010?
