New Lens by Oct 31 - 12-16mm F2.8-4.0 SWD?

Yesterday when I browse one of Online Store (Fotobooms) in my location (Netherlands). They list a new Olympus Lens 12-16mm F2.8-4.0 SWD, It is still out of stock.

The others information are the Price at € 889,00 and the Lens diameter is 72mm.

I think the official release will be announce on Oct 31st?

Note: Fotobooms website didn't use correct image for the lens.

Not right

Not right. The lens showed is the 12-60SWD. Not new (but great lens).
Waarcshijnlijk dus een foute melding.

Could be, and what I suspect as well. The interesting thing is that the same website shows 2 different 12-60 lenses at two different prices...

What I suspect this is: One is an original "Dutch Market" lens, i.e. supplied by Oly Holland and the other might be "EU ware" sourced cheaper elsewhere in the EU. I see that often in Germany...

It's not the size of your sensor but how you use it that counts...

As of now Fotobooms.nl remove the lens from their list.

proof it was listed there :

Edit : I'm unsure if I'm allowed to post above proof image, if it's not allowed please let me know.
