Apparently officially announced by Panasonic this morning.
More details to follow i suppose.

Aperture ring !!!
It's going to be interesting to see the price...
first ever lens with f1.2 and image stabilization? cool.
My guess, 1299usd
Thats a serious marriage breaker
If Pana is starting to put IBIS then when are they still producing lenses with IS built in? Make up your mind Pana. Looks interesting but the IS will be useless feature for Oly bodies and will cost more.
All current Panasonic bodies like IBIS. Presumably Panasonic would like to sell to them too.
My mortgage hates these threads.
All Pana-bodies to date rely on Lens IS (and we don't know how good IBIS in the GX7 will be) and aside from the EM-5 and E-P5 the Oly IBIS isn't that good.
So from my perspective as a G5 and EPM-1 user the IS makes sense and the lens is thus more attractive for me.
I've had an E-P1, and the IS is not even worth turning on. hahaha The OM-D is what made me sell off my D600 and lenses. But if you get a lens with IS, it feels like you're paying for a feature you're never going to use if you already have 5-axis. Maybe stick to the 75 1.8? Even if it's longer..
Given the focal length...a $1000 dollar 85mm eqv Nocticron is of more value and versatile to me than a 150mm eqv $900 Oly 75mm....irrespective of how amazing the 75mm is, it's just too difficult a focal length to be generally versatile for me.
At $1,000 yes. I hope that will be the price or cheaper. :smile:
I have read it on one of the sites I have visited (I think it was Pana Japan but don't have time to check) that it is about as effective as Mega OIS - which makes it 1 stop.
nocticron = noctilux + summicron?
Wow this lens sounds expensive...
Two fancy names - Leica and Nocticron as well as an aperture ring.
I was budgeting US$1200 for it but I bet it is quite a bit more.
I think I'll quit photography now before I go broke...
So next we have to decide what we are going to pay for it. Canon 50/1.2 is something around 1500 euros and it doesn't have IS. I would be surprised, if it stays around 1000 euros and if it is over 1500 nobody would buy it. Okay, everybody here, but nobody else
don't do that Vin.. MFT survives on people like us and this forum
