Olympus is sending out a new teaser! After the weird nuts(LOL) for the new Tough camera (Click here)…..Techradar got the message you see here on top of this post! Obviously this is for the new 75mm f/1.8 portrait lens. The lens will be announced within the next weeks (and don’t forget that there is a Panasonic announcement too!).
The lens is said to have the highest image quality of all current Micro Four Thirds lenses. It is not weather sealed and if according to some unconfirmed rumors it should cost $799. That’s a lot less than comparable Full Frame lenses like the Canon 135mm f/2.0 (Click here) and Nikon 135mm f/2.0 (Click here). Only the 85mm Canon f/1.8 (here at Amazon) and the Nikon 85mm f/1.8 (here at Amazon) are cheaper but also have an older design and are not as long as the Olympus (127.5mm on an APSC camera).
I know I already posted a similar poll months ago. But now we have some more info about the lens price and quality. So I ask you again:
One more thing. I don’t know yet if the 60mm f/2.8 macro will also be announced along the 75mm lens!
