RRP $1999AUD $2399NZD

Product details : www.olympus.com.au/12-100mmf4

RRP $1799AUD $2199NZD

I have seen the 25mm f/1.2 quoted at 1099 with availability soon. 12-100 f/4 same price, expected late in the year but in very limited numbers.

Now the bad news, contacted my contact in Olympus. Answer; ' this is a misprint price has still not been announced.' so we are still in the dark.
