Last week the new Sony NEX announcement, yesterday we had the new Panasonic 12-35mm announcement and soon Olympus will announce the 75mm f/1.8. So, can we have a rest now? No! We are now pretty sure that Samayang will have an announcement too! They will release the first lens (or lenses?) for the Fuji X system. I have no info about the lens specs yet but we will know more about it very soon!

P.S.: There is also a coming Panasonic G5 announcement, probably a Canon mirrrorless system announcement, maybe a Nikon 1 high end camera announcement…You will not get bored in these days!

New Panasonic 12-35mm announced and reviewed (Olympus 75mm 1.8 coming soon).

Finally the first of the two bright Panasonic zoom prototypes has been announced. The 12-35mm f/2.8 OIS lens. You can right now read the full review at (Click here) and Click here for the google english translation. There is no info about the second 35-100mm X lens. I guess it’s coming much later only. And ina couple of days Olympus will launch the 75mm f/1.8 portrait lens too!

Other mirrorless system really have to do a lot to catch up or at least get close to the Micro Four Thirds Lens offering!!!
