That's what I found closer to a kind of bootleg lens in ebay:

The guy says a lot good things about his lens, the specifications seems very attractive, but he never explicits the original manufacturer...

What you think about it: half cost of an Oly 75mm/f:1.8, and you get a 1.4! (manual and C mount)

Just in his first line he mentions that this lens has a "C-mount" and can be used on m4/3 or Nex.

This alone tells me it's not going to be an Oly, Pana or Sigma in native m4/3-mount......

So I don't really thnk it'll qualify as a potential bootleg..... One does have to read thoroughly though: "Caveat Emptor".
