New lens: Leica DG Nocticron 42.5mm f/1.2
#10
It will have to be very good at f/1.2 otherwise such a speed doesn't make much sense, especially given MFT users can already get the excellent Oly 45 f/1.8 which is very good wide-open and extremely cheap (at least here in Switzerland: 216 euros new!).

I concede this new Leica targets a different category of customers though.

I wonder if Panasonic will keep designing lenses with OIS (in-body stabilization) given their latest body features in-body stabilization.

I hope they will stop as I've never been a fan of OIS in-lens because of the adding complexity, larger size, heavier weight and decreased reliability (at least in theory).
