(Photoshopped image) Silver 12-40mm PRO lens coming soon?

Silver_pro_12-40mm

Note: I stitched together that image from 4 small images i found on the website (therefore the imperfections!).

A Dutch Store (via DL) is listing a Silver Olympus 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO lens.  The image itself looks like it has been inverted in PS. They made did that to fill the gap. But I guess Olympus will soon announce such a Silver lens for real to match it with the new Silver E-M1 camera. Do you like the new color? :)

UPDATE: Some readers believes the lens is not coming because the image has been photoshopped. Guys, the point is the store is accepting preorders on what they clearly states being a new SILVER version fo the lens. They just PS an image to not leave the site with a blank image :)

P.S.: Silver E-M1 body at Amazon, Adorama, Bhphoto, GetOlympus. In Europe at Wex UK.

Zeiss: “We would like to do MFT lenses but we have limited resources”

Zeiss managers told at BestMirrorlessCameraReviews that there are lots of things you’d like to do, but you have limited resources and power so you need to concentrate on one thing:

At the moment, the MFT system is quite valued, but as for the willingness to spend big money on lenses, to see this as an investment as you do on a SLR, we are not 100% sure it is there. On a full frame SLR system, the lens is really the investment part. The camera is what you change, and people are used to this. In the case of less-than full frame systems, we still don’t understand.

No MFT lenses for now :(
