    Lens will be released 6/15 in Asia in silver and black. Taiwan prices converted to US will be about 900 for black and 1100 for silver. Design is a throwback from the 50s and 60s, lens should produce some images with character.

    If I make time between now and the 15th (when I leave town for a week) I might be able to test out a model before the release. It will obviously have the typical CV all metal build with smooth movements, I'm interested in seeing the images it produces with the EM5 and XE1. If I do get a chance I will post some photos here.
