Olympus filed a patent for 12-150mm lens, the lens features aperture range of 12-150mm F3.9-6.2. Take a look at the patent details below

Specification and lens arrangement of embodiment 6
Focal length: 12.253 – 146.736 mm
F No.: 3.900 – 6.200
2ω: 84.5 – 8.4
Image height: 10.04 – 11.15 mm

Once the patent is approved it takes roughly 1 to 2 year to become a real product. But here I am disappointed by the aperture range of the lens.
