Eric:This isn’t a rumor, really it’s news.  Anyway, anybody running a Mac that’s updated to the latest OS X (El Capitan) won’t be able to install the upcoming E-M1 or E-M5II firmware at the end of November — it turns out that the Olympus installer needs a big upgrade first:

(FT5) Olympus will launch a new f/1.2 prime lens line in early Spring!


Image on top shows the OM 50mm f/1.2 lens (here on eBay)

I am now 100% sure Olympus will launch a new f/1.2 prime lens line at the CP+ show in late February! I have no info yet when those lenses will actually ship in stores but trusted sources said Olympus will disclose a clear roadmap at CP+.

I am working to get the details and specs of those lenses. Exciting!

Bit of history: Olympus OM system had two f/1.2 lenses: The 50mm f/1.2 (here on eBay) and the 55mm f/1.2 (here on eBay).

For sources: Sources can send me anonymous info at (create a fake gmail account) or via contact form you see on the right sidebar. Thanks!
