    I just pre-ordered the Oly 12 and 45 through Amazon. Hoping that they will be awesome lenses. The 12 will have to be really impressive to be a keeper. The 45 just needs to be about the same level of the PL45 to be a keepr.

    To pre-order the Oly 12 and/or Oly 45 from Amazon, use the affiliate link below and support MU-43.com.

    The link will take you to the Amazon site, and just do a search for Olympus 12mm or Olympus 45mm.

    I just did, too, on impulse! :) That Amazon store card (with the installment payment option) really keeps getting me into trouble.

    I have the 45 on pre-order, despite the general lack of info on it. It's essentially exactly the lens I want next for the system, fingers crossed for it being a sharp metal wonder.

    Here's a link that was posted on another thread in this forum. This link has lots of sample photos from the 45/1.8.

    Yeah I've seen it, and I think the range of pictures is far too narrow to come to a decent conclusion about the lens. The question is really what will it do in my hands, shooting like I shoot...and I am fairly optimistic in that regard.

    looks like the 45mm may be my next lens.

    I pre-ordered the 45mm through Adorama using the affiliate link here. So who's going to get it first - you or me? :tongue:

    hi all
    is there any additional cost to pay besides the listed price and shipping
    cost for the lens such as GST, VAT or the likes with Amazon, B&H, etc...
    for overseas sales? thanks.

    The seller does not collect anything. The retailer attaches appropriate Customs forms and your Customs officials apply the appropriate duty/tax/GST/VAT.

    Your profile doesn't say your country of residence. Perhaps with this information you will be able to get a more specific answer. :biggrin:
