Olympus Patent for 28mm f/1.4 Full Frame Mirrorless Lens

Olympus Patent for 28mm f/1.4 Full Frame Mirrorless Lens

Olympus has filed a new patent for 28mm f/1.4 lens designed for mirrorless cameras with full-frame image sensors.

The patent application refers to a prime optic. It consists of 28mm focal length with a maximum bright aperture of f/1.4. This makes it a perfect companion for lo-light photography. On the other hand we might not see these product in mass production.

Currently there are no rumors for a Oly full frame mirrorless camera model but this is the fourth patent filed in Japan. This could refer to a future product like an Olympus full-frame mirrorless camera.

We hope these patents became real. The new Olympus full frame mirrorless camera might be unveiled at Photokina 2016 in September this year.
