(FT4) UPDATED -> The future MicroFourThirds lens list! Is Olympus going to produce a new 20mm f/1.7 lens?
Forum Olympus France just compiled a nice MicroFourThirds lens list and they also have a list of future (and some unexpected) lenses! The adminstrator of the forum says he received the future lens list from Olympus!
The important news is
1) The 9-18mm lens will be in Stock by april 2010
2) The 14-150mm lens in Stock may-june 2010
3) And that’s not a joke…Olympus Forum France adminstrator says that Olympus plans the release of the new 20mm f/1.7 lens by end 2010 early 2011! Can’t believe Olympus will copy the include("buy/20.php"); ?> lens!
The very friendly administrator of the Olympus France Forum contacted me and told me “The roadmap stated on the forum-olympus-france is the roadmap announced with the E-P2 by Olympus France. There is no information on the forum-olympus-france whether or not this Micro Zuiko Digital 20/1.7 is the same as the Panasonic : such information is not available yet.”
