Wow, 28-70 and 70-200 equivalent lenses both with f/2 constant, that's something!! Wish other manufacturers would follow suit :D

A 70-200 2.8 NON-IS lens for Canon users is around $1250 new. I wonder how much Olympus will charge for their 70-200.

Also, would 2.0 vs. 2.8 be worth the justified price difference.

I probably will not buy any of the new lenses, but I am happy to see the strong commitment that Olympus has to the 4/3 system. The sound like great lenses, but most likely will be too heavy/expensive for my needs.
