This is a rock solid rumor. Olympus will launch a new f/1.2 lens line soon. And a trusted source just added that the very first lens will ship this summer. The announcement date is yet unknown but there is a chance Olympus will display that lens as a prototype at the CP+ show in late February!

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