New Panasonic lens patent: 100mm f/2.0 and 34mm f/1.8 and more!


United States Patent 8693110 discloses a couple of Panasonic Micro Four Thirds lens designs:
25mm f/1.4 (current Leica 25mm lens?)
34mm f/1.8 (could become a 35mm f/1.8)
43mm f/1.4 (could be the current 42,5mm Nocticron)
64mm f/1.8 (could become 65mm f/1.8)
98mm f/2.0 (could become a 100mm f/2.0)

Obviously what you see on a patent don’t mean it will get into production. But…

what kind of lens would you like Panasonic to realize...for real?
