Last week we learned the price of the new Olympus 25mm f/1.8 lens and the new pancake zoom would be 35,000 yen in Japan. By using the current currency conversion the price would be 250€. Well the last two days I got confirmations from one trusted and one new source that Olympus will price the lens much higher than that! It will cost 399 Euro!
These are the prices:
Olympus 25 f/1.8 will cost 399€
Olympus 14-42 will cost 399€
Fisheye lenscap will cost 99€
Once again EU citizen have to pay more than US or Asian countries on camera and lenses!
For me this means I will wait for a refurbished deal at Olympusmarket to try to get them for a lower price :(
