    I'm just wondering if anyone has an educated guess about this lens. It can't be any smaller than the 12-32 but will probably be smaller (and sharper?) than the 12-50. Hmm.

    Any ideas?

    Am I seeing things or is that a MF ring at the very top of this new 14-42mm ....

    Looks like it. Pity it starts at 14mm. Wish it started at 12mm like the Panasonic.

    Good group. I, for one, love these little specialty lens cap lenses. Sorta Holga-esque. I was about ready to grab a 45, this 25 deserves a look though. The kit zoom? Eh. But probably developed to advertise the new E-M10 as truly pocketable. Could be good with a new tiny PEN?

    Might be nice paired with an E-PM3 when that comes out, to compete with the GM1.

    I have a suspicion that the EM10 is going to be something like the olly vs of the GM1. I don't think it's the em5 replacement I think it's going to be the premium OMD compact camera.

    Maybe .... Just maybe if you have a sharp enough eye ...... You can see it on the Olympus site.
