Today, Olympus presented a new M.Zuiko ED 45mm f/1.2 PRO lens, which will possibly make the dreams of many Micro Four Thirds System users come true.
This newest telephoto lens ensures the equivalent of focal length of around 90mm (view angle of 27 degrees) and the maximum aperture of f/1.2. Thanks to these parameters, it’s going to be a great portrait lens.

Similarly to other fixed lenses of the PRO series, the new model is a very complex construction. The optical system consists of 14 elements placed in 10 groups. The lens is to ensure brilliant resolution and guarantee the highest image quality across the frame, even at maximum aperture.
Special anti-reflection coatings (Coating Nano) have been used in the lens in order to limit undesired lighting effects. Precisely designed and modern optical system is also to efficiently limit chromatic aberration and vignetting

Quick and precise autofocus motor adjusts focus from 50cm, which, with the combination of 121-point cross-type AF system of the OM-D E-M1 Mark II camera, is to ensure amazing image focus, even at maximum aperture.
M.Zuiko ED 45mm f/1.2 PRO weighs 410g and has the dimensions of 70×85mm. The tubus is, of course, sealed and frost-resistant (up to -10C).
The lens is to appear on sale in December this year. The price has not been revealed yet.
