New Olympus F/1.2 primes officially announced
#45
Quote:Looks to be a great portrait lens. I like that Oly went for a bit simpler optics (if one can call that in a prime with 14 elements, sic!), compared to 19 pieces of glass overkill in 25/1.2. Hopefully with good flare resistance, often a pain with complex lenses.

Personally would welcome half a stop slower, 1,4 lens, which would reduce size. Heck, can’t have it all.

The 25 out of necessity is a fairly strong retrofocus design considering Olympus' design parameters, where the 45 is not, or less so, and with the design parameters in mind it therefore ends up having more elements.


The beauty of these lenses is that they have great bokeh in both the OOF foreground and background, which makes these lenses very special.


Kind regards, Wim
Gear: Canon EOS R with 3 primes and 2 zooms, 4 EF-R adapters, Canon EOS 5 (analog), 9 Canon EF primes, a lone Canon EF zoom, 2 extenders, 2 converters, tubes; Olympus OM-D 1 Mk II & Pen F with 12 primes, 6 zooms, and 3 Metabones EF-MFT adapters ....
