New Patent: Olympus 100mm F2.8 Macro IS PRO Lens

Olympus has filed the new patent for Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 100mm f/2.8 Macro IS PRO Lens. This is definitely a PRO grade macro lens rather than a popular price macro lens. Even if it has a price setting close to ¥200,000 (around $1,800), it has the confidence to make a reservation first.
