Olympus says fast lenses are coming. Reminder: 12 and 14mm f/1.0 have been patented.


Just recently Olympus confirmed they are developing new fast lenses. On info we have about those lenses is the Olympus patent published last year. It shows three 12, 13 and 14mm f/1.0 lenses designed for Micro Four Thirds cameras. I hope we will nto have to wait too long to be able to buy one of those :)

(FT1) This is the shockingly too good and too fake Olympus lens roadmap :)


I just got 99% fake Olympus roadmap. But the poor guy who did this made such an effort with his imagination that I thought it would be kind to post a FT1 rumor for once :)

P.S.: Quite many lenses from the roadmap I would certainly like to own!

(FT3) Ricoh GR alike camera coming from Olympus?

It’s months now that we get rumors about a digital version of the Olympus Trip 35 fixed lens camera (here on eBay). And we just got new tidbits from our source named “Simon”. He claims to know that indeed Olympus will launch such a camera: “good news they will bring a camera like the Ricoh GR V“.

The Ricoh GR is the most compact APS-C fixed lens camera yet and has a prime lens. If Olympus will manage to make it even more compact it could become a really nice cam!

I have no reliable info about the release date of the camera but I think we will not have to wait too much…

For sources: Sources can send me anonymous info at (create a fake gmail account) or via contact form you see on the right sidebar. Thanks!
