Announcement of the development of the M.ZUIKO PRO category
"M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm F2.8 PRO" Lens
Micro Four Thirds System standard compliant
Olympus Imaging Corporation (President: Haruo Ogawa) is pleased to announce the development of the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm F2.8 PRO (80-300mm, 35mm equivalent) which is planned to release in the latter half of 2014. This lens will be a telephoto zoom lens that conforms to the Micro Four Thirds System standard, with a bright constant aperture f2.8. This lens, of the 'M.ZUIKO PRO' high-performance lens category, will feature a dustproof and splashproof construction rugged enough for professional use.
This lens will be the high-performance version of the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm F4.0-5.6 (80-300mm, 35mm equivalent) already released, which is an interchangeable telephoto zoom lens that conforms to the Micro Four Thirds standard, and retains high-performance, despite being compact and lightweight to mobile. This high-performance telephoto lens covers both a maximum aperture value of f2.8 for brightness at all focal lengths, and a dustproof and splashproof construction.
When this product is combined with the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-40mm F2.8 PRO, it covers a focal length of 24mm to 300mm (35mm equivalent) with a fixed aperture value of f2.8, for specifications that meet professional demands as one of the "M.ZUIKO PRO" lineup. This product is scheduled to go on sale in the latter half of 2014.
