Olympus is allegedly working on a new 45mm f/1.2 PRO lens for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. This Olympus 45mm f/1.2 PRO lens will be the third f/1.2 PRO prime lens from Olympus. The detailed specs and launch date are still unknown.
As we all known, Olympus is planning to release at least one new f/1.2 PRO prime lens in 2017. The second f/1.2 PRO lens will be 17mm f/1.2 PRO lens, just after the current 25mm F1.2 PRO lens, and it will be followed by the 45mm f/1.2 lens.
The Olympus 17mm f/1.2 PRO lens is rumored to be announced along with Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III camera in late August/early September 2017. Currently we are not sure if Olympus will announce both the 17mm f/1.2 and 45mm f/1.2 lenses at the same time. In addition, Olympus is rumored to announce a new fast telephoto prime lens in 2017.
The current Olympus 45mm f1.8 lens is a very fast, very light portrait lens that is compact in size and affordably priced. It’s designed to excel in low-light conditions, deliver outstanding detail with shallow depth of field, and capture beautiful pro-level quality portraits: $399 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama.
