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.
Olympus instant rebates up to $150 off cameras, lenses and accessories expire this week on August 17. Check them all out here at B&H Photo.
The Olympus E-M5 is the new OM-D series camera that builds on 40-years of the Olympus OM SLR series, as well as the Micro Four Thirds success that Olympus has found in recent years.
The E-M5 features a 16.1MP Live MOS sensor, a built-in electronic viewfinder and max sensitivity to ISO 25,600. Additionally, the E-M5 will capture 1080i HD video.
