Olympus has patented a new 24mm f/1.4 lens in Japan designed for full frame mirrorless cameras.
Currently there are no rumors for a Oly full frame mirrorless camera model but this is the third 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 and 35mm f/1.4 mirrorless lenses, this 24mm f/1.4 prime lens is also designed for full frame image sensored cameras. Sure all these prime lens patents might refer to a premium fixed lens full-frame compact camera like the Sony RX1R series.
