The 12-100mm PRO has an image stabilizer ? 6.5 f-stops ? I suppose that's in combination with in-body IS. A fairly big thing but in theory that's a good start.

Minimum focusing distance: 0.15m (wide angle), 0.45m (telephoto)

 

That is very unusual...

 

And someone does not totally understand what max. magnification means (with the 30mm)  :lol:

I guess oly spent the time developing IS for the 300 and now they will use it in new lenses.

Pretty unexpected if you ask me. It looks like the manufacturers have all decided to use everything they can: Sony went from IBIS to lens IS then to IBIS again (leaving the lens IS in use), Panasonic went from lens IS to IBIS, and now Olympus adds lens IS too.

As of today: Scratch "Ca" from that :-)
"Digital IS with 5-axis image stabilization* when shooting movies plus increased image stabilization with both lens optical IS and in-camera digital IS when shooting with an IS lens."

Wonder how they do 5-axis without moving the sensor.

It is a matter of sensing the movement and analyzing where the image then should end up in, adjusting the crop?

ELECTRONIC IS ... this has nothing to do with sensor IS.
Available in movie mode only. They simply shift a smaller frame within the full frame. A well known approach in camcorders ... but not the real thing.

did anyone noticed the 25 1.2 Pro? 

14 group 19 sheets???

A standard prime with 19 sheets??

Otus 55 has only 12 sheets     Voigtlander  25 0.95 has only 11 sheets

I wonder if the 43Rumor got some mistake  or  Oly really design a king of standard prime?

In the very theory - more elements = more correction which is a good thing.

On the other hand  - more elements = high risk of de-centering and slightly worse light transmission (although I doubt that the latter is significant these days).

Ah guess there might be an error in the translation somewhere... 19 elements is more characteristic of a fast zoom (Canon 24-70/2.8 L II is "only" 18/13 and the 70-200/4 L IS is 20/15 but it's stabilized...)

Seems as if the 12-100m f/4 is also a 1000USD+ lens ...

Can it be that the industry is determined to kill itself?

Absurdly big and absurdly priced indeed.

I just don't see the point of such a massive lens. The 12-40 is comparatively small and light while being much brighter and offering some sort of DOF control.

At f4, this 12-100 is just too limiting. If it had been small, yes, maybe. But at this size, it is plain silly.

I don't have such an issue with the size - it is a 24-200mm lens after all.

The new Canon EF-M 18-150mm f3.5-6.3 IS STM looks attractive in comparison (price/weight wise) even though it does not go as wide (29-240mm FF equivalent) and it is a tad slower on the long end (and not weather sealed). It was my first reaction to this f4 Oly..... Pro (high price) with f8 FF equivalent aperture? What is the sense of that?

I would probably be fine with that for most kinds of work I do - it's no longer as centered around low light as it used to be, and I do most of my daytime work stopped down anyway. In any case I'm not the one to obsess over equivalence or whatever - since I never owned / desired a 35mm camera I do not have the urge to compare stats - real or imaginary - to a measuring stick that bears no relevance to me.

 

Of course, that could not be my only lens, or even system, so branching out into that seems pretty pointless to me unless I do a complete overhaul.
