(FT4) Olympus 12mm f/2.0 with different design than the mockup.

After yesterdays Olympus lens rumor post a trusted source contacted me to add a little bit of new info. First the lens mockup Olympus showed a few months ago is not the real final lens. The design has been changed! The real final production lens will be a bit more compact. He also confirmed the specs I received from a new sources a while ago. The lens should be a 12mm f/2.0 lens. It’s the first Olympus High-grade lens. It’s very sharp also at f/2.0. Price is unknown yet but the lens will be announced in late June. Panasonic is currently offering a 14mm f/2.5 lens which is very compact and cheap (but not a very high-quality lens). The only faster wide angle lenses are CCTv lenses like the Pentax TV Lens 12mm f/1.2 (Click here to see that on eBay) and the soon coming new SLRmagic lens. But those are very low quality alternatives.

There are two questions I have for you. Try to be fair with your answer ;)

Will you buy the high quality 12mm f/2.0 lens if the price not to high?
