12-60 on OMD... Will there be m4/3 12-60? Rumors positive...

Great shots showing what is possible with the OMD and really good glass like the 12-60, well done, Ovince!

Regarding other options coming in the future...

I just bought a used 12-60 last night off eBay and am looking forward to getting it...

I asked our Oly rep last week about a possible mFT 12-60 and he said he doubted it...but that might just be "I can't say".


Rumors only, FWIW, but here they are, there is enough buzz that I am saving lens budget for the fall, believe some of these will become real options...

"Micro Four Thirds and Sony NEX are about to get new lenses at Photokina, and they will be from both Sigma and Tamron. One of the lenses will be a 12-35mm f/2.8 lens based on the construction of the APS-C 17-50mm f/2.8 lens, a very promising design."

from e-p1.net

"Now the same source is claiming that we'll see two new lenses announced bv Olympus at Photokina:

25mm f/1.8: Size between current 17 and 45mm primes; built like 45mm; ~$200-250

12-60mm f/2.8-4.0: Weather sealed; Length similar to 12-50mm kit lens but "fatter"; "high grade" build; ~$800-900"


Me, I'd be really up for the 12-60 in native m43 if the IQ is like the current 43 12-60, BUT, if the Sigma price comes in half-ish of the Oly 12-60 (possible), then could go that route and a fast macro prime as well...
Create the future or live someone else's. Choose wisely!
