In addition to the smallest Micro Four Thirds camera, the GM1, Panasonic today also announced a new Leica-branded lens, the 15mm f1.7 DG Summilux. While still under development, a first rendering is already available, and it has us scratching our heads a bit. On the one had, it deviates from previous Micro Four Thirds lenses in that it apparently shows a manual aperture ring. Is Panasonic trying to compete with Fuji’s X-system? On the other hand, the focal length is a bit weird, to say the least. It’s pretty close to the already exisiting 14mm f2.5 lens in terms of focal length, and in terms of speed it’s exactly the same as the 20mm f1.7.
