Rumored Olympus 15mm F/8 MFT Lens

Yes, you are not reading that wrong. This is a fixed lens with the widest opening being f/8. That may seem odd, actually, no, it is odd. You don’t see lens manufacturers creating f/8 lenses because they will be barely usable without ample light. I guess this is more of a niche lens that will be used outdoors. I’m expecting this to be less than $100 and with that price I guess everyone can get this little toy (if you have an MFT camera).

Here are some of the specs if you plan on getting this lens :

  • Focal length: 15 mm (equivalent to 30mm on a 35mm camera)
  • Aperture: f/8 fixed
  • Dimensions: Max.diameter: 56mm (2.2in.), length: 9mm (0.4 in.)
  • Design: 3 groups, 3 lenses
  • Focus: 0.30 m (11.8 in.) to infinite. Manual Focusing (three settings)
  • Weight: 22 g (0.8 oz.)
