I think they are working on a faster zoom, not sure if it will be a constant f2.8 or not. but i hear that is part of their roadmap.

Yes, I heard that too.... I don't hold out much hope for constant f2.8, although it would be nice FWIW, I reckon a 12-60 f2.8-4 would sell like hot cakes. Maybe I'm just hungry right now

The new one looks like a 25mm 1.4 prime that they are considering. That is a lens I will want to have.

Yes, the 25mm f1.4 is interesting, but for my money, a bit close to the 20mm f1.7.... As hards80 points out there is indeed also a "fast zoom" under consideration, and that's something that the m43 format is definitely crying out for. I wouldn't be surprised to see a simultaneous announcement alongside the forthcoming Panansonic AG100 camcorder. Interesting times

i would like to see what sigma has plan for m4/3 think the 50-150 2.8 HSM, would be a good size for the m4/3 as a fast zoom.
