A super trusted anonymous sources just shared a bit of a strange news. One of the new Micro Four Thirds lenses announced at Photokina will be the cheapest prime lens ever announced by Olympus. It will be cheaper than the $250 17mm pancake (image on top). The source didn’t unveil any specs but he said it’s not a new version of the 17mm pancake but instead a completely new lens! Let’s see if some other sources can tell us more about it…Thanks
Current 17mm pancake price check at Amazon, Adorama, B&H, J&R, eBay.
The cheapest Panasonic pancake is the superb 14mm f/2.5 that is for sale for $266 at Amazon (Click here).
