(FT3) Some more info about the possible three new f/1.0 Olympus prime lenses and E-M1II.

Share


The official 12 and 14mm f/1.0 Olympus patent (article here).

Source “Simon” shared some more tidbits about the Olympus f/1.0 lens and E-M1II plan:

The plan from Olympus is to bring out 3 new high prime lenses (sealed) in september 2016. There ar already prototypes in the lab. It is more “easy” to produce fixlenses instead of zoom like 40-150 2.8.I think they will bring them in September 2016. Parralel with the successor of our EM-1 they will introduce a new level of picturequality. There plan is to “steel” customers from Nikon & Canon (D4 + EOS 5) with highprime lenses + freehand hi-resolution modus like the EM 5 MK II. So 12mm/1.0; 25mm/1.0 & 50mm/1.0 will come !

Thanks Simon! Let’s hope you are right on this :)

(FT1) Olympus will make Zuiko branded lenses for the Sony NEX-FF system?

35OM

Sometimes I really have to post some of the strange rumors I get from anonymous funny “sources” :)
One of them sent me a message saying that Olympus will join the Sony E-mount system and make lenses for them. The first lens would be a “Zuiko 35mm f/2.8”. The lens design would be close to the gorgeous Zuiko 35mm f/2.8 OM lens (here on eBay).
I really don’ believe the info is correct but…there is a but. I cannot exclude that in a distant future Olympus will make the big jump to Full frame. And maybe they will really join the E-mount system. Afterall Olympus and Sony are partners and it would be easier for Oly to jump on the boot of a popular system.
