(FT3) Updated2->The next three Panasonic MicroFourThirds lenses.



We already told you that Panasonic will keep working with Leica on new lenses. Finally “someone” told us which lenses you could be seeing in Q4 2009 or Q1 2010.

- 20mm f/1.7 (This is the only lens Panasonic has officially announced). This lens hasn’t be made in collaboration with Leica and should be released in autumn.

16-50mm f/2.5-4.8 OIS (summarit)

30mm f/1.4 OIS (summilux)

The last two lenses should be released together with the new Panasonic MicroFourThirds camera at the end of the year.

UPDATE: The 16-50 f/2.8-4.5 should be optimized for video. That explains the 16mm starting focal length which is unusual for photography but a normal focal length for videocameras.
UPDATE2: I made a little mistake. The source told me the 16-50mm lens will have a f/2.5-4.8 aperture! That’s why it is called Summarit (because it starts with 2.5)!
P.S.: I know it sounds a little unusual but we will soon see if the source has been right!


If you need lenses I remind you that Panasonics 45-200mm f/4.0-5.6 Lumix lens is in stock at (with heavy discount for $308 only!).

And sadly, still none in stock :(5
