(FT5) Another exceptional µ4/3 lens from Panasonic is soon to be unveiled!

Few days ago we told you that at Photokina (September) Panasonic will finally release the 14mm f/2.5, 100-300mm and 1-2 new video lenses for the new MFT camcorder (The AG-AF100). Today two of our best sources told us that we should expect one more “exceptional” lens. A lens that was not one the Panasonic roadmap -> yes Panasonic cheated on us ;)
The sources didn’t reveal any details about the lens. But they said we don’t have to wait a long time to know it…

Just a reminder. Few weeks ago we received rumors from good sources saying that Panasonic was working on fast primes (faster than f/1.4). We don’t know if one of those fast primes could be announced now. There has been also a rumor saying that there could be a MicroFourThrids version of the current Panasonic 25mm f/1.4 FourThirds lens.

Let’s see…
