Panasonic 30mm f/.8 macro lens designed for mirrorless cameras with Micro Four Thirds image sensors is expected to be announced in Q1 2015.
Panasonic has already announced that they are developing a new 30mm f/2.8 macro lens during the Photokina 2014 event this year.
Now the company has plans to release the lens in early 2015, sources say. This means we might see the 30mm f/2.8 Macro MFT lens on display at the CP+ Camera & Photo Imaging Show 2015 in mid-February which will take place in Japan.

The Panasonic 30mm f/2.8 mft lens enables life-size macro photography, offering a close focusing distance of 60mm. The new fixed-focal length lens will also support 240 fps high-speed AF, while integrating optical image stabiliser and sports a metallic finish.
The 30mm f/2.8 MFT lens from Panasonic will sure give more choices to Micro Four Thirds users and compete against the Sigma 30mm F2.8 EX DN.
