Olympus 7-14 f/2.8 and 300mm f/4.0 Lenses Coming


Olympus just unveiled two new Micro Four Thirds Pro lenses: M.Zuiko Digital ED 7-14 f/2.8 and M.Zuiko Digital ED 300mm f/4.0. But don’t get so excited yet, since these lenses will be available in 2015.

M.Zuiko Digital ED 300mm f/4.0  will give a 35mm equivalent of 600mm, a huge advantage for sports and wildlife shooters considering its relatively compact size. Olympus doesn’t give any price information yet.
