Re: What new Micro Four Thirds lenses would you like to see added to the roadmaps?

Because Video is becoming more useful, I would like to see some MFT Panasonic Prime Cine and Zooms.
They should be able to AutoFocus when you need it and
also have big enough glass to cover a s35 Sensor for low light.

I see your point Roger, Panasonic in particular are pandering more and more to the VID side of the hobby especially with their latest bodies so I guess they need to increase the lens choice for Vid. It would be nice to see more independent lens makers offering up lenses, so far its Tamron with a mediocre 14-150 and 3 fairly good but not stellar Sigma primes.

Rokinon makes some good Cine lens with MFT mount but they are manual.

I am not saying manual is not best for most Video but there are times, especially during action, when a native AutoFocus Cine zoom lens could be better.

The one I use is the Sony 28-135 f/4 Cine with motorized zoom. It is not only very good but adds controls to the A7s.
One of the most useful features is to simply pull the focus ring toward the camera to use manual when auto does not work well such as when there is something bright behind the subject.
