Olympus is pleased to announce an updated M.Zuiko Digital lens roadmap, outlining plans to expand the M.Zuiko lens lineup and including an update of anticipated availability of the previously announced M.Zuiko Digital ED 150-400mm F4.5 TC1.25x IS PRO super telephoto zoom lens with built-in 1.25x teleconverter.
M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 150-400MM F4.5 TC1.25X IS PRO
This upcoming PRO lens, for which development was announced in January 2019, continues with an estimated scheduled release of later 2020. This is the first Olympus interchangeable lens with a built-in 1.25x teleconverter, extending the maximum focal length to 1000mm (35mm equivalent). Final images of the lens are now available.
Two new lenses, the M.Zuiko Digital ED 8-25mm F4.0 PRO lens, as well as an unspecified macro lens, will join the M.Zuiko lineup as part of Olympus' commitment to broadening the field of photographic expression. Olympus will continue enhancing its lens lineup to maximise the unrivaled system portability made possible by the compact, lightweight, high image quality of the Micro Four Thirds System.
BIRD SUBJECT DETECTION FOR OM-D E-M1X CAMERA
To help fulfil the growing needs of birding and wildlife photographers and make super telephoto shooting more convenient, development is underway to add Bird Detection capability to the Intelligent Subject Detection Autofocus of the OM-D E-M1X camera. This new feature will be available for the E-M1X via a firmware update that is scheduled for release late 2020.
Committed to photographers who demand both uncompromising image quality and portability, we will continue to develop and release lenses with world class optical performance. Break Free with Olympus and explore our system to capture the moments you want, anytime, anywhere.
