Olympus lens patent (8mm f/3.5 fisheye that will never come’)

FacebookShare

The japanese blog Egami (Click here) found a couple of new lens patents. There is no surprise. These are the lenses:
8mm  f/3.5 fisheye
10mm f/2.8
12mm f/1.8
12mm f/2.0
12mm f/2.8

It’s easy to guess that the 10-12mm lenses are just different variant of the current Olympus 12mm f/2.0 lens. And if you look back at the early 2011 Olympis roadmap it contained an 8mm fisheye lens. But I doubt this lens will come any time soon. We already have a Panasonic 8mm fisheye and a super tiny and nice Samyang 7.5mm f/3.5 (Click here to get them on eBay) and an almost unknown Madoka 180 degree fisheye.

—-LInks:
The Olympus 12mm f/2.0 at Amazon, Olympus US store, Adorama, B&H, eBay.
The Panasonic lens costs around 600-700 dollars/Euro and is available at Amazon, Olympus US store, Adorama, B&H, eBay.
The Black Samyang 7.5mm lens is available on eBay (Click here).
The Silver Samyang 7.5mm lens is available on eBay (Click here).

GH3-POLL
I know that in January-February there will be a new GH2x kit option with the yet available 14-42mm X and the upcoming 12-35mm and 35-100mm X lenses. But I don’t know if that alone is the reason of the $300-500 price drop in US stores. But if there is really a GH3 coming soon I ask you:

What you expect from the GH3? Select a maximum of three must have features!
