Olympus 28mm f/1.4 Full Frame Mirrorless Lens Patent


Olympus has filed a new patent for 28mm f/1.4 lens, which is designed for full frame mirrorless cameras. We know that Olympus has filed several full frame mirrorless lens patents in the past few years: 24mm f/1.4, 20mm f/1.4, 35mm f/1.4, 28mm f/2. Olympus said that they will make mirrorless lenses for Sony E-mount cameras, but there is another big possibility that Olympus is working on their own full-frame mirrorless camera. Maybe we’ll see the new Olympus full frame mirrorless camera in the next few months, probably at Photokina 2016 in September.

Take a look at the patent details below.
