Olympus into F1.0 field?



Each vendor will always have a "forbidden" and to Olympus, for example, uses its Micro 4/3 system M.Zuiko Digital lenses have been unknown stipulate text: fixed focus lens that does not exceed the maximum aperture of f /1.8. So whether it is the quality are among the top of the M.Zuiko Digital ED 75mm f / 1.8, Diwan portrait mirror M.Zuiko Digital 45mm f / 1.8, capture using M.Zuiko Digital 17mm f / 1.8, or is included with the OM -D E-M10 is accompanied by M.Zuiko Digital 25mm f / 1.8, and both are in the so-called "OM curse!"

However, the nearly 4-year-old curse is expected in mid-2016 before the end of "mess up" What happened has learned that Olympus will launch a variety of channels large aperture fixed-focus lens, and the amount of light and more is beyond friendly plant Panasonic's f / 1.2 maximum aperture record, almost equal to the amount of light comparable to the human eye into the f / 1.0!

Olympus news that the f / 1.0 Super pupil will provide 12mm, 25mm and 50mm focal length three, standard 35mm camera equivalent 24mm, 50mm and 100mm, wins the Snapshot and portraits category. Although the use of M4 / 3 4/3 "medium format in the area is far less than full-frame camera, referring to rumors three f / 1.0 wide aperture lens on full-frame machine has eyes only f / 2.0 equivalent aperture, but you can shorten the distance with the other camera systems.

However, these unknown Olympus f / 1.0 wide aperture fixed focus lens on whether Ten volume increase, after all M4 / 3 system has been pursuing a balance between system size with quality. If even the volume Snapshot mirror are large enough difficult to carry, it seems to lose M4 / 3 birth intent. I personally hope the new Olympus lens design, the ideal is Voigtlander multivessel M4 / 3 system is suitable for f / 0.95 lens large aperture in mind, that is the weight of the new lens is controlled within the range of 550g.
