Olympus has unveiled a new M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 75mm f/1.8 Micro Four Thirds lens. Due to the 2x crop factor, the new lens provides 150mm equivalent field of view, which makes for a long portrait lens or a niche low-light event or sports lens.
The Olympus 75mm f/1.8 lens retails for $899.99 and should be available later in Summer 2012. Check availability at B&H Photo.
