Image on top: The Leica Perara Triplet. One of the smallest lens ever made.
What a surprise!
We just heard from our top sources that Olympus super cheap m43 lens will be a 15mm f/8.0 fixed aperture prime! It has a length of 9mm only!!! At first glance I thought this may would be a pinhole lens (there is one from SLRmagic here) but I have been told this lens….has lenses It will have about the dimension of the Leica Perara Triplet (the image you see on top).
Very likely the goal from Olympus is to set a new mark in the miniaturization war. Makes me wonder what they will do with the upcoming E-PM5…make it small as a Minox???
