(FT3) Tokina to release two MFT lenses with AF at PMA in September?


According to a new 43rumors source: “Tokina will introduce at PMA (CliQ) 2011 two autofocus lenses for the m4/3 mount. The first one will be a 17/2.0 or faster pancake. The second one will be a 8-16mm/3.5-4.5 or faster. Both lenses will feature internal focusing and a build quality similar to the excellent Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8. OIS and linear motor is under consideration as Tokina is out-sourcing, as usual, the technology to contractors. Price range is about 25% less than similar offerings from Olympus (17/2.8) and Panasonic (7-14/4.0).”

See and read the specs of the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 on eBay or Amazon.

P.S: Thanks to the anonymous source! I owe you a beer for that ;)

A Micro Four Thirds rumors roadmap

Don’t make fun of me because of that baby-graph I posted here :)

We posted so many rumors that it’s good to post a visual summary of what could be coming soon. Keep in mind that those are rumors. Some of them may be true, some will change and some of them may be turn out to be false. But one thing I can tell you. Panasonic and Olympus will very soon announce MANY new Micro Four Thirds products. Just curious…

Which rumored camera/lens are you more interested in? (you can vote more than once)
