Here come the SHG lenses
May 21, 2012

Welcome to Phase Two of the Micro Four Thirds Revolution.

I think it is fair to say the new Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 is the first SHG lens for M4/3. If the rumors are true that the Panasonic 7-14mm lens is being redesigned to add OIS and weather sealing, then it will be the second SHG lens. And I suppose the Panasonic 35-100mm will be the third.

In four short years M4/3 has blossomed from a single camera with two lenses, to 20 camera bodies and over 28 native lenses. There are even two third party companies making lenses for the system (Sigma and Voightlander).

Micro Four Thirds is working their way up the food chain, from consumer grade to enthusiast level, and now some really good pro grade stuff. It will never replace FF cameras on NFL sidelines, or be the first choice for fashion photographers or long distance wildlife shooters. But it could be the ideal system for street shooters or anyone else who wants portability and high image quality.

Kudos to Panasonic and Olympus for giving us one more option.
