Three new m43 lenses from Schneider. New 12-24mm and 45mm NX lenses from Samsung.

We also had plenty of new lens announcements today! Schneider released these three new Micro Four Thirds lenses

  • Super-Angulon 14 mm/2.0 wide angle lens (10 lenses with 4 aspherical surfaces, 1:10 to ∞)
  • Xenon 30 mm/1.4 universal lens (7 elements with 1 aspheric surface, 1:10 to ∞)
  • Macro-Symmar 60 mm/2.4 highly open Macro Lens (8 lenses, scale 1:2 to ∞)

And Samsung announced two new NX lenses:

  • 12-24mm f/4-5.6 ED
  • 45mm f/1.8
  • Austin

    All of the Schneider lenses make more sense on an APS-C focal length.

  • Harold GLIT

    Really ?
    At least 2 of the three lenses shown here seem to have been developed for APS standards. ( NEX, most likely)

    If a company joins M4/3rds standards , does it make sense to have one of your first lenses introduced to be a 60 MM FOV ???? WTF?
    the 14mm is by far the most tempting but it will compete with the one from Panasonic
    the 120mm Macro lens might be better than the coming Olympus but really this has to be a disappointing announcement. Not to mention that we are looking at lenses that are at least A YEAR AWAY from being on the store shelves

    sounds more like PR and throwing announcements to ” test the waters”than anything else

    I thought Samsung changed from a 55mm design to a 45mm design to be more ‘pancake’?

    Also any links or info on the new NEX lenses? Nothing on DPR…

  • Jean-Michel

    VERY, VERY frustrating not to have these Schneider lenses in E & X mounts….

    This is very good sign for M4/3. I feel much better after jumping from NEX to m4/3. A lot of lens are coming. Bravo !!!

  • aleckurgan

    I understood all schneiders are going to be big, but judging by the bayonet 60 macro is going to be absolutely monstrous. And it’s not even 1:1 macro!

  • awacs

    That´s it, I am selling my NX11 and buying something normal, because this lenses are all the same :-/ Nothing good will come from the NX line.

  • Not Interested

    Where is the 80-400 OS for NX?
