Will there be a 150mm F2.0 prime?
Sep 11, 2012

I know this topic has been covered for longer TF for sure.

What I want is something that comes very close to FF 300F4. A u4/3 f2.0 would do that and offer IBIS on the OMD. The Bokeh/DOF would be similar (assuming good lens design) as FF f4.0 and it would shoot two stops faster. I guess it would be about the same size as my Nikon 180 f2.0 which is OK. That on an OMD is WAAAY smaller than a 300 f4.0 on FF.

I am afraid they will make one, but it will be f4.0 which is fast enough, but will not smooth out the oof area as well.

I could live with a 150 f2.8. That will for sure be smaller than my Nikon 180 so would be a really nice size with OMD (fits in with the u4/3 thing of small and light) and would probably give decent oof area.

If they do release a 17mm prime like is rumored it would seem they have 17-75 covered well and a fast 150 would be a next good choice.

Thoughts?
