(FT4) UPDATED -> The future MicroFourThirds lens list! Is Olympus going to produce a new 20mm f/1.7 lens?

Forum Olympus France just compiled a nice MicroFourThirds lens list and they also have a list of future (and some unexpected) lenses! The adminstrator of the forum says he received the future lens list from Olympus!

The important news is
1) The 9-18mm lens will be in Stock by april 2010
2) The 14-150mm lens in Stock may-june 2010
3) And that’s not a joke…Olympus Forum France adminstrator says that Olympus plans the release of the new 20mm f/1.7 lens by end 2010 early 2011! Can’t believe Olympus will copy the lens!

The very friendly administrator of the Olympus France Forum contacted me and told me “The roadmap stated on the forum-olympus-france is the roadmap announced with the E-P2 by Olympus France. There is no information on the forum-olympus-france whether or not this Micro Zuiko Digital 20/1.7 is the same as the Panasonic : such information is not available yet.
