Sourced report that Panasonic plans to launch the new 30mm f/2.8 MFT macro lens during first quarter 2015. I guess this means the lens will be displayed at the CP+ show in mid February. There is no info on the price yet.
That is what Panasonic writes about that lens:
The new 30mm/F2.8 macro lens enables not only life-size macro photography but also offers further versatile styles of capturing photos, such as landscape photography thanks to a focusing distance of 60mm (35mm camera equivalent). For high precision focusing in macro photography the new lens also supports 240 fps high-speed AF, while integrating optical image stabiliser. It features a sophisticated exterior design in metallic finish for the stylish appearance.
