Olympus patent discloses new 400mm and 500mm MFT lenses

Share

I spotted a brand new Olympus patent which describes the design of two new telephoto lenses: The 400mm f/4.0 and the 500mm f/4.0. As usual we don’t know if and when such lenses will be announced. But I guess it makes sense for Olympus to introduce such kind of super telephoto lenses as wildlife photography is certainly one of the main use of MFT gear.

Nikon is officially making a new “serious” mirrorless system

Share

Nikon 50mm 1.1 (for Nikon SP cameras)

As you probably know the Nikon 1 mirrorless system didn’t have that huge success as expected by Nikon. But it seems like Nikon learned the lesson and we will now get a completely new mirrorless system camera with Full Frame sensor. Nikon told at Dpreview:

“While details are confidential, we can say that we are currently developing new mirrorless products that build upon Nikon’s strengths, and offer the performance prospective customers expect, including the ultimate optics performance, image-processing technologies, strength and durability, and operation.”

I am pretty certain this will be a Full Frame system which means it’s not necessarly a direct competitor of the MFT system.
