(FT4) Christmas present: 17mm f/1.8 to hit stores in December for 550 Euro.

Few weeks ago we got Yahoo Taiwan listed the new Olympus 17mm f/1.8. And now we got a more specific info confirming that the lens will hit the stores in mid December. The rumored price in Taiwan is $16,900 NTD and in Europe price will be around 550 Euro. Olympus already said that this lens will have the same build quality of the Olympus 12mm f/2.0 lens. I will certainly grab one of these!
