Olympus 25mm f/1.2 PRO lens designer interview: More f/1.2 lenses are coming!


The Japanese site (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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

Note: The current Olympus 25mm f/1.2 is in Stock at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, Olympus US store, FocusCamera, eBay.
