Official: black 12/2.0 only $799 - vs. $1199 for near-identical "Special Edition"
2 months ago

Olympus today discreetly announced that the so-called "Special Edition" 12/2.0 in black is not really "special" after all.

Olympus will continue to sell the lens (minus the hood and protective filter), for $400 less.

Olympus M. Zuiko 12mm f/2.0 BLACK $799

Not a very nice way to treat loyal customers who splashed out all that coin for the special edition, in my opinion, especially since the resale value of the "special" will drop. Those customers basically got reamed.
