In development: Schneider 30mm f1.4 and 60mm f2.4 macro lenses (M43rds) attended the Schneider Kreuznach presentation in Germany and there, in addition to the previously mentioned 14mm f2 Micro Four Thirds prime, Schneider is also developing two more Micro Four Thirds primes to be announced at/by Photokina 2012, the 30mm f1.4 and 60mm f2.4 macro.
