    45mm f1.2 Pro is discontinued and is no longer available:

    https://www.wexphotovideo.com/olympu...-lens-1643061/

    Has this been confirmed anywhere else?

      How strange. Oly's own website still lists it, with a price. LCE list it as in stock, with a rather more attractive price.

        Finger trouble explains a lot in these cases. Oly aren't going to discontinue one of the most magnificent portrait lenses on the planet.

          WEX's website describes it as discontinued again.

          https://www.wexphotovideo.com/olympu...&utm_source=aw

          We no longer sell this product and will not be receiving any new stock.

          Discontinued - we can no longer source new stock of this product

          Too many rumours about already without Wex continually adding to them.

            Not when I followed your link just 'awaiting stock'

                I am seeking clarification from Olympus directly once and for all regarding this speculation - I will update here as soon as I get an answer.

                  This appears to be where the rumour started https://www.talkphotography.co.uk/th...2#post-8565397


                  Down on post #17629 there's mention of it also being on DPReview.

                    Yes that’s where I saw it initially but it’s not a rumour as it links to the wex site .. might just be bad wording or down to shop profitability levels as amazon were reducing them to silly levels last weekend .

                        I suspect Wex may not have a standard webpage to suit the situation they are finding themselves in, so are incorrectly using something designed for completely different circumstances, is thoroughly incorrect, and sowing seeds of confusion.

                              Hmmm - another thread afflicted by the missing starter post (and 2nd post it seems).

                              Anyway, Olympus UK confirmed to me that the 300 f/4 Pro is NOT discontinued at all and even pointed out that the WEX website now shows it's back in stock.

                                Ian Thought I'd found a way to display content of 'empty' posts when using ''Quote button as it displayed the missing post contents, but it appears to only work once and created an even worse problem as use of ''Quote then appears to be completely disabled for the entire thread

                                EDIT: It now appears possible to get quoting back, for example post #1

                              Several posts are missing including .... Olybirder and Bikie Johns made 5 days ago.

                              Good to know the 300f/4 has not been discontinued
