New Sigma patent shows a new 25mm f/1.2 and f/1.8 Micro Four Thirds lens design.



Egami spotted a new Sigma patent disclosing a special Micro Four Thirds 25mm lens design. There is a compact 25mm f/1.8 lens and a much brighter 25mm f/1.2 lens. I believe it’s highly unlikely that Sigma will make that lens for real. There is a much bigger chance they will sell the patent to Olympus or Panasonic. I certainly like the idea to get a 25mm f/1.2 lens!
