A mirrorless zoom lens size comparison made by Serious compacts.
As you already know Panasonic will not announce new lenses along the Panasonic G3 (press release on May 11). The 25mm f/1.4 m43 lens and other lenses will probably come in late summer only. We have been also told that Panasonic will follow Olympus route and realize new compact (collapsible?) zooms. Our sources are pretty sure they will release them within 2011. We have no specs yet. It may be not an amazing news but it was about time that Panasonic reduces the size of their zooms. I guess this should be one of the advantage of the m43 system over the NEX and NX systems….to have smaller lenses!
If you know something more drop us an anonymous message using the contact form on the right sidebar. Thanks!
Olympus is currently offering two collapsible lenses:
The 14-42mm kit lens (direct links to Amazon, B&H, Adorama, Olympus US store, FocusCamera, eBay).
The 9-18mm wide angle zoom (direct links to Amazon, B&H, Adorama, Olympus US store, FocusCamera, eBay).
