One of the more exciting announcements to come out of Photokina is the arrival of the new Olympus 25mm f1.2 PRO lens. This surely is a lens that many have been waiting for for a long time and considering the design, it seems very worth it. Olympus went through the trouble of completely redesigning the lens to make only a single element move when it focuses. This ensures that the lens has fast focusing. Surely, you also get the light gathering benefits of f1.2 and weather sealing. With the Four Thirds crop, you’re getting the equivalent of f2.4 on a full frame camera–which means that there is no real reason to stop the lens down when shooting portraits or anything for that matter.
But to get more insight in to how the lens works, we talked to Olympus Visionary Tracie Maglosky about how she’s using it for her work.
