Olympus Imaging Corporation (President: Haruo Ogawa) is pleased to announce the development of M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 7-14mm F2.8 PRO and M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 300mm F4 PRO lenses. These lenses both conform to the Micro Four Thirds System standard, and its mockup will be shown at the CP+, Camera & Photo Imaging Show held at the Pacifico Yokohama, Japan from Thursday, February 13, 2014.

The M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 7-14mm F2.8 PRO is the first wide-angle zoom lens in the M.ZUIKO PRO series to cover 14-28mm (35mm equivalent). While maintaining dustproof and splashproof performance along with a compact and lightweight form, this lens is representative of ZUIKO QUALITY for its even sharpness to the edges of the image and excellent depictive power.

The M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 300mm F4 PRO is the first single-focal-length super telephoto lens in the M.ZUIKO PRO series at 600mm (35mm equivalent). This lens has superb depictive performance as well as mobility and dustproof/splashproof performance that are perfect for even professional use.

These two lenses are scheduled to be released from 2015 onward. When combined with the M. ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-40mm F2.8 PRO on sale now, and the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm F2.8 PRO scheduled to go on sale from the second half of 2014, the M.ZUIKO PRO series will feature four different lenses that cover everything from super wide angle to super telephoto.
