[shoplink 23681 ebay][/shoplink] Image on top: The popular [shoplink 23681 ebay]Four Thirds 12-60mm[/shoplink] lens which so many wish to see in a native m43 version.
Mu-43 reports that Olympus may introduce a new 25mm f/1.8 and 12-60mm zoom lens.
The 25mm f/1.8 lens is a bit larger than the [shoplink 14798 ebay]17mm pancake[/shoplink] and built like the [shoplink 23577]45mm lens[/shoplink]. Price is very low and between $200 and $250 like the Four Thirds 25mm lens (here at Amazon).
The 12-60mm f/184.108.40.206 lens is weather sealed and a bit larger than the [shoplink 27977]12-50mm lens[/shoplink]. Price will be around $800-$900. A bit less than the popular [shoplink 23681 ebay]Four Thirds version[/shoplink].
The rumor hasn’t been confirmed by my trusted sources yet and even mu-43 doesn’t know the source. I hope it’s not a wishful thinking of someone so I posted it with a low FT2 rating (and probably I was too generous). Anyway, let’s imagine for a moment that this is a real thing:
