Sigma 30mm MFT lens by DSLRmagazine 

Sigma Rumors got a hint about Sigma’s next lens for mirrorless system cameras. In September Sigma could launch the 24mm f/2.8 ART DN which as usual with those lenses should come in all possible mounts including Micro Four Thirds.

Currently Sigma already offers three MFT lenses:
The 19mm f/2.8 on eBay (Click here).
The 30mm f/2.8 on eBay (Click here).
The 60mm f/2.8 on eBay (Click here).

These are not very fast primes but they are cheap and deliver a very good optical quality.

Mitakon 42.5mm f/1.2 Review at Photographyblog.

Photographyblog (Click here) posted the full review of the Zhongyi Mitakon 42.5mm f/1.2 MFT lens and writes:

In terms of image quality, the lens creates some nice bokeh effects when shooting wide open at f/1.2, creating an attractive dreamy look, but you really need to stop down to f/4 to get critically sharp results in the centre of the frame, with the edges slightly worse. This lack of sharpness may actually be a plus-point for portrait shooters who want a more romantic look – just make sure that the image quality fits your particular bill. Chromatic aberrations are commendably almost completely absent, but vignetting is pretty bad at f/1.2, not disappearing completely until f/4.

Overall PB prefers the similar priced Olympus 45mm f/1.8 lens unless you really need the faster aperture.

You can buy the lens on eBay (Click here).
