Wide and fast. Interesting. I really wish more video orientated lenses would come out. I'm surprised that no new ones have been released yet.

Nice- wish we didn't already have a 45mm from Panasonic but it's always great to have more native m43 lens format choices.

These 2 new Olympus lenses are designed for video work, in that they have very quiet focusing motors, and have large and smooth manual focus rings. I will probably buy both once they are out. The 12mm because there is nothing else out there, and the 45mm because it's fairly cheap at $400.

Please let us know how they work when you get them.

I will buy both of these new Olympus lenses later in the year when my budget allows for it, but in the meantime here is a link to some hand-held video shot with the Olympus 12mm f/2.0 lens using a Panasonic GH-2 with the high bitrate low GOP hack:
