A couple of months ago I reported that Olympus developed a new series of f/1.2 PRO Zuiko prime lenses. One of them would be the 25mm f/1.2. The launch of that lens got slightly delayed (from early summer to late summer before Photokina).

Now a source reports that Olympus will launch two of those f/1.2 fast primes within the second half of the year. I don’t know the exact specs yet but so far four more MFT lenses are expected to be announced this year:

12-100mm f/4.0 zoom
25mm f/1.2 PRO
30mm f/3.5 macro
another f/1.2 fast prime


Bit of history: Olympus OM system had two f/1.2 lenses: The [shoplink 56524 ebay]50mm f/1.2 (here on eBay)[/shoplink] and the [shoplink 56525 ebay]55mm f/1.2 (here on eBay)[/shoplink].
