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???
