(FT3) Some more info about the possible three new f/1.0 Olympus prime lenses and E-M1II.
The official 12 and 14mm f/1.0 Olympus patent (article here).
Source “Simon” shared some more tidbits about the Olympus f/1.0 lens and E-M1II plan:
The plan from Olympus is to bring out 3 new high prime lenses (sealed) in september 2016. There ar already prototypes in the lab. It is more “easy” to produce fixlenses instead of zoom like 40-150 2.8.I think they will bring them in September 2016. Parralel with the successor of our EM-1 they will introduce a new level of picturequality. There plan is to “steel” customers from Nikon & Canon (D4 + EOS 5) with highprime lenses + freehand hi-resolution modus like the EM 5 MK II. So 12mm/1.0; 25mm/1.0 & 50mm/1.0 will come !
Thanks Simon! Let’s hope you are right on this :)
