Exciting news from Olympus! Three specific lenses are now on the horizon, with an additional unspecified PRO telephoto zoom lens promised for future development. Here’s a summary of what we know about the lenses under development now, with detailed specifications to come in 2020:
- M.Zuiko Digital ED 150–400mm F4.5 TC1.25x IS PRO
- M.Zuiko Digital ED 12–45mm F4.0 PRO
- M.Zuiko Digital ED 100–400mm F5.0–6.3 IS
- M.Zuiko [???] PRO telephoto zoom
I think it’s safe to say that if you’re considering the OM-D E-M5 III as a gift for a very special someone, they’ll be well-supported on all sides—new lenses and firmware updates from Olympus; in-person education, camaraderie, and printing services from Mike’s Camera.
