Olympus lens road map..
Aug 31, 2010

... just saw this on 43rumours;


Completely dominated by tele zooms. No W/A prime until next year.

Personally, I have no need or desire for tele zooms on mFTs kit although those who do will have plenty of choice of slow glass. Oly seem to think that this is an important user group.

I think that Oly don't understand the real appeal of mFTs. For every one photog asking for another tele zoom there are ten looking for a W/A, compact prime and a fast portrait lens. The latter isn't even on the road map. Smaller sensor should equal smaller, faster glass to maximise the format. The exra DoF compared to FF is no bad thing here either... but lens speed delivers big time versus f4 and 5.6 lenses in terms of IQ.

I guess we have to hope that pannie see things differently, otherwise it will be MF, lumpen Voigtlanders.... and again, no announcements wrt faster glass out wide.

A real shame that they just don't get what users are looking for.
