We just got confirmation from our sources that there will be no new Olympus m43 product announcement this month.We know Olympus plans to announce two new m43 lenses this year but I am not sure yet when this will happen (could be in November). One of the new lenses is the 50mm f/2.0 (or f/1.8 ?) macro lens (Click here to see the current Four Thirds macro). I am not sure yet about the specs of the second lens. Olympus had a fisheye lens on the roadmap but I guess they dropped that lens as there is already a Panasonic and (soon) a Samyang fisheye lens.
One more thing: Does it mean that we will not have any new m43 product soon? No, I just heard someone else could announce new m43 products. More about that this week! A third party lens maker could unveil new lenses soon. I am asking my sources to send me more info about that! Thanks!
