As you knwo Zyoptics makes the Mitakon 35mm f/0.95 (can be found here on eBay) lens. And at Photokina they will release that 42,5mm f/1.2 MFT lens you see on top.
But there is also a third lens to come according to one of their entries on the CHinese site Weibo: A Zyoptcis version of Voigtlaender 25mm f/0.95 is now under design. The lens is supposed to be more compact and light when compared to the Voigtlaender one but with the same optical performance. Attached is the message sent by Zyoptics to one of our 43rumors readers. The message means: “we’ve already been working on it. The volume and weight are very small.The IQ is same.” in English.

Photozone tested the 9mm lens-cap:
Honestly, it isn’t quite a bad as you might think. The center performance is actually pretty decent. The borders are Okayish whereas the corners are very soft. Lateral CAs are significant but not terrible either. There’s some vignetting but honestly this isn’t anything you’d complain about in a fisheye lens. Compared to conventional lenses, the contrast is somewhat reduced especially in the corners. However, on the positive side it is pretty resistant against flare which is rather surprising.
SLRgear tested the 14-42mm pancake zom:
The Olympus 14-42mm ƒ/3.5-5.6 EZ ED M.Zuiko Digital lens is a well-executed lens. It achieves what appears to be a goal for the smallest size possible, as well as adding in new functions (power zoom) and improving on its optical properties as well.
