Olympus has announced the development of a pair of new M.ZUIKO PRO lenses – the M.ZUIKO DIGTAL ED 7-14mm F2.8 PRO and M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 300mm F4 PRO.
The new 7-14mm f/2.8 lens (14-28mm equivalent) is a weather-sealed lens that’s dustproof and splashproof designed with the ruggedness of the Olympus OM-D E-M1 and E-M5 in mind. The 300mm f/4 lens will yield a 600mm equivalent field of view with the Micro Four Thirds sensor of the E-M1 and other MFT cameras.
Both new lenses are scheduled to launch in 2015. No word yet on pricing.

The Sony A99 is a 24.3MP full frame DSLR that packs a punch on both the still image and video capture side of things. The A99 is capable of capturing still images at 10 fps in full 24.3MP resolution.
The camera sports a new AF system that combines a standard 19-point AF system with 11 cross-type sensors and a new 102-point AF sensor that overlays the main image sensor. [Read more…]
