Very interesting lens!

Somebody suspects in 43rumors-comments it may be collapsible. I'd be surprised, but maybe the fact that the dot in the zoom-ring is far distant from the 8mm-mark supports this speculation.

Does anybody have more substantial information? What would that mean with regards to weather-sealing?

I don't think it is 'collapsible' as such. It is just that for storage, the shortest length is not at 8mm. Put another way, it is significantly extended at the 8mm setting. At least that's my interpretation of the image.

In a sense not different from the 12-40mm, which is not at its shortest at 12mm.


Looks to me like a push-pull manual clutch like the rest of the PRO lenses, my guess.
