(FT4) Olympus 9-18mm Lens to be announced in February-March and it will cost $600!

Today seems to be a good day for lens news! Samyang just announced their new lenses with FourThirds mount and now 43rumors has learned that the new MicroFourThirds 9-18mm lens (shown in the picture above) will be unveiled in Q1 (probably February or March). We also know that the lens will cost around $600 (or 550 Euro). Our sources told us that the quality should be at least on par with the Panasonic 7-14 MicroFourThirds lens. It will weight a lot less and be a lot smaller than the Panasonic lens and can be fitted with filters.

At the same time Olympus will also release the 14-150mm lens. We have no price indication about this lens now.

Spread the news to all MFT folks!

Voigtlander 50mm Nokton f1.1 VM on microFT

plevyadophy wrote a very interesting post inside the dpreview forum:

Today I purchased the Voigtlander 50mm Nokton f1.1 VM for my G1.

There have already been a number of announcements, reviews and repots with sample images of/from this alternative to a super expensive Leica Noctilux f1.0 (or the ultra super expensive, but admittedly better, Leica Noctilux f0.95 ASPH):…on-50mm-f11-in-leica-m-mount.html
