(FT5) There is definitely an Olympus 17mm f/1.2 PRO lens on the roadmap!

I can confirm via trusted sources that Olympus plans to make a new 17mm f/1.2 PRO lens which will be a great companion of the current 25mm f/1.2 PRO lens. I am yet not certain when Olympus will announce the lens but there is a fair chance Olympus will show new lens prototypes at the CP+ show in late February!

Note: The current Olympus 25mm f/1.2 is in Stock at Amazon, Olympus US store, Adorama, B&H, eBay.
