Photar.ru interviewed a Panasonic Russia manager and he shared some info about the new 10-25mm f/1.7 MFT lens. He said:
As I recall, the announcement is expected in August-September 2019. It will be quite an expensive glass, because it is unique. We expect the price to be at the level of 160,000 rubles, but probably also cheaper. In fact, by purchasing one lens, the videographer gets all the main focal lengths to which he is used. 10-25mm – in the full frame it is 20-50mm. The lens was developed in conjunction with LEICA.
Notice that in Russia the Panasonic S1 sells for 180,000 rubles which is $2,800. So I guess the equivalent 10-25mm lens price might be around $2,300. Expensive I know…but still an exciting lens to own!
