The Japanese site DC.watch (google translation) interviewed the designers of the Olympus 25mm f/1.2 PRO lens. There is a lot of in deep technical talk about the new lens. The engineers also shared two info about why they did choose the f/1.2 aperture and if there are more fast lenses to come:
- It would have been possible to make the lens even faster but the size would have become a lot larger and autofocus a lot slower.
- The f/1.2 series is going to be expanded with new lenses. Olympus collected the customers request at the CP+ show
We reported in previous rumors that Olympus already designed two more fast f/1.2 primes. And of them is for sure a new 17mm f/1.2 PRO lens.
