Canon FD 55mm F1.2 tested on the PEN-F


The Olympus PEN-F looks damn sexy with those old lenses. (google translation here) posted a test of the Canon 55mm f/1.2 lens (here on eBay) with the PEN-F. If you are waiting to get a f/1.2 lens be aware that Olympus will soon launch a new f/1.2 PRO prime lens series! Just wait til Photokina…

DxOmark (Click here) posted the full Panasonic GX80/85 sensor score results. As expected the camera performance is as good as the rest of the MFT bunch. We can probably expect a new jump in the score from the future GH5 and E-M1II only.

New Olympus patent describes set of Full Frame f/1.4 fast primes: 17mm, 25mm, 28mm, 35mm and 50mm



I just found a brand newly published Olympus patent describing the a new f/1.4 prime lens line for a yet non existing Olympus Full Frame system! The lenses do have a highly complex lens design suggesting these will deliver a high quality performance. The patented lens versions are:

17mm f/1.4 (7 cm total lens lenght)
25mm f/1.4 (8 cm total lens lenght)
25mm f/1.4 (13 cm total lens lenght)
28mm f/1.4 (13 cm total lens lenght)
35mm f/1.4 (13 cm total lens lenght)
50mm f/1.4 (13 cm total lens lenght)

So the question seems no more to be “if” Olympus will make a FF system but more when they will announce it!
