Olympus 35mm f/1.4 Full Frame Mirrorless Lens Patent

Olympus has filed a new lens patent in Japan. The new patent describes a Olympus 35mm f/1.4 lens designed for full frame mirrorless cameras.

Currently there are no rumors for a Oly full frame mirrorless camera model but this is the second patent filed in Japan. This could refer to a future product like an Olympus full-frame mirrorless camera but on the other hand we might not see these products in mass production.

Just like the previous 28mm f/2 mirrorless lens, this 35mm f/1.4 prime lens is also designed for full frame image sensored cameras.

Anyway we hope the patents became real and we may see the new Olympus full frame mirrorless camera at Photokina 2016 in September this year. Below are the details of the patent.

    sounds to me that Olympus would be abandoning, not giving up, the concept they wanted to develop of small mirrorless cameras which they have done very nicely.

    Looks like Olympus is designing lenses for other manufacturers not an unusual concept.;

  • Mats Svensson

    As I remember did Olympus make an agreement with Sony that they should make lenses for Sony a couple of years back. I do believe that is what we see now taking part.
