(FT4) Panasonic 30mm f/2.8 macro to be launched in Q1.

 

Sourced report that Panasonic plans to launch the new 30mm f/2.8 MFT macro lens during first quarter 2015. I guess this means the lens will be displayed at the CP+ show in mid February. There is no info on the price yet.

That is what Panasonic writes about that lens:

The new 30mm/F2.8 macro lens enables not only life-size macro photography but also offers further versatile styles of capturing photos, such as landscape photography thanks to a focusing distance of 60mm (35mm camera equivalent). For high precision focusing in macro photography the new lens also supports 240 fps high-speed AF, while integrating optical image stabiliser. It features a sophisticated exterior design in metallic finish for the stylish appearance.

Anonymous:I have had my copy of the Olympus 40-150mm f/2.8 Pro lens for three days. I mounted the lens on an Olympus OM-D E-M1 camera body [with firmware V2.1], and I quickly discovered a bug in the AF. If you focus on a subject a few feet away, the AF will work fine, but if the next shot is a distance subject, AF will fail until you have tried it [i.e. pressing the shutter release halfway down] as many as three times. Doing these steps in reverse, that is, distant subject to near subject has the same problem. I was about to report this bug to Olympus when I discovered that they now have a new camera firmware release V2.2. I installed V2.2 in my E-M1 camera and tested the AF again. Amazingly, the problem was fixed. Bravo to Olympus for staying on top of their firmware fixes.
