Cant wait till the new 43mm 1.4 lens comes to market.
Oct 8, 2012

I was reading the other day about the 43mm 1.4 lens in µ4/3 mount that is being developed. It reminds me of the Fantastic Minolta 85mm 1.7 portrait lens of old film days. I think it  will be fantastic, as I prefer to use short telephotos for portraits.

Does anyone have any new information on which company is likely to be releasing it?

From all that I have found and read so far, the speculation is that it's likely to be branded one of these:

  • Panasonic Leica Summilux DG 43mm F1.4
  • Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 43mm F1.4
  • Schneider Xenotar 43mm F1.4

I really doubt it will be a Panasonic Leica. In my opinion, I think of the three choices, it would be a Schneider.

Regards
