    Olympus M.Zuiko ED 45mm f/1.2 PRO Announcement


    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 70x85mm. 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.

      New manual Samyang MF 85mm f/1.8 ED UMC CS lens with the equivalent of 135mm is dedicated to the users of cameras with the APS-C sensor, namely: Sony E, Fujifilm X and Canon EOS M.
      The optical system of the lens consists of nine elements placed in seven groups. Among them we will find one lens with high refractive index and one low-dispersion lens. Covering the lenses with UMC coatings should minimize light reflections and chromatic aberration. The producer assures that new Samyang is to ensure high resolution within the whole frame as well as good contrast and color reproduction.

      The lens is fully manual, which means that the control is provided by physical rings which regulate aperture and sharpness. Depending on the camera's system on which we are going to mount the lens, its equivalence will be 127 to 136mm. Sharp photographs with the use of the lens can taken from the distance of 65cm, the aperture consists of nine blades and the filters with the diameter of 62mm can be mounted on the front lens. The lens is not big since it's only 8cm in length and it weighs 344g. 
      New Samyang will be available on sale at the beginning of September and it will cost $399.
