Re: Has the black Olympus 12mm lens gone for good?

Good points Tom. Or say if another manufacturer such as Panasonic, Sigma or others bring out their own 12 mm lens in black with a good quality plastic build at a price of say $699 or $799. Hmmm...

There are three kinds of people in this world - those who can count, and those who can't.

Samyang recently brought out a relatively compact 12/2.0 for $400, no AF tho. Haven't seen much discussion about it here, I imagine many would just choose to spend another $100 on the smaller Oly for AF even if it's used. There's certainly room for Sigma or Panasonic to bring out more wide primes.
