Olympus is on the verge to announce two new prime lenses with a fast aperture of f/1.2. The two new Olympus f/1.2 lenses expected to arrive sometime in late 2016.
As we have posted earlier, one of them will be the Olympus 25mm f/1.2 model. This optic is on the horizon from the beginning of 2016. It will be the first lens in a series of fast primes, which will most likely join the company’s PRO-series.
Olympus PRO series lenses are freezeproof, splashproof, and dustproof. We can clearly expect the Olympus 25mm f/1.2 PRO lens announcement at Photokina 2016.
