Yep. Exactly. Let's hope at least one of those two zooms will materialize.
When the 12-45mm f4 Pro came out I remember a lot of people asking what the point of it was and why would they buy one (assuming they already own 12-40mm or 12-100mm).I'm sure most are eager to add everyone's favorite comment: "Boooring. Not for me. THIS IS NOT WHAT m4/3 IS ALL ABOUT.", right?
More options is definitely better. You do NOT HAVE TO buy everything.When the 12-45mm f4 Pro came out I remember a lot of people asking what the point of it was and why would they buy one (assuming they already own 12-40mm or 12-100mm).
Plenty of lens companies (Canon, Nikon, Tamrom etc) all have f2.8 and f4 versions of their core zoom lens lineups. Why wouldn't Olympus have it too? You don't have to own every camera/lens a camera company produces.
Yeah. And I think it's a good compromise. Fast enough but not too big. I love my Sigma 56mm f/1.4 but I wouldn't mind something longer from Oly... eh, OMDS.I guess this confirms the new prime bright primes are all f/1.4…
Still, my wife is really interested in the 20 f/1.4
No reason to release 3rd 17mm prime. And IQ of the 17mm Pro cannot be overshadowedA 20/1.4 is interesting. Smaller and lighter than the f/1.2 lenses.
Though I wish it was a 17.
The 20mm F1.4 can't replace the 15mm, it is not wide enough. Sometimes the 17mm is too narrow. I hope the 14mm F1.4 will be next. It would pair nicely with the 20mm F1.4. I am missing the 14mm FL in Oly/OM line-up.the 20 1.4 sounds pretty interesting to me. Potentially could replace 15mm 1.7 and 25mm 1.4 for me.
Maybe a zoom with 2 macro positions? Or a zoom with very close-up capability at every FL?The macro lens will be be between 75mm-150mm?
