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.
Apple has issued an update to Digital Camera RAW to version 5.03, which adds RAW image support for the Canon EOS M2 in Aperture 3 and iPhoto ’11. The update also resolves an issue that prevented lens correction from working properly with Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 images and address a color cast issue on some Olympus OM-D E-M1 images.
The update is available through the Mac App Store’s “Updates” tab.

More leaks for the upcoming Olympus E-M1…
This time we a treated with an overhead view of the E-M1 with the 12-40mm f/2.8 lens attached. Although, this is not part of the official Olympus teaser.
The 12-40mm f/2.8 lens will result in an effective zoom range of 24-80mm thanks to the 2x crop from the Micro Four Thirds sensor.
The Olympus E-M1 is rumored to be priced at $1500, which is $500 more than the Olympus E-M5 body. [click to continue…]
