New 8–25mm f/4.0 PRO lens for Olympus and other MFT cameras arriving in July

OM Digital officially took on Olympus’ consumer photo division at the beginning of 2021 and we have been eagerly awaiting a look at the future of the OM-D line. As of today, we have a release date for their first imaging product: the M.Zuiko Digital ED 8–25mm f/4.0 PRO.

The lens was announced on a roadmap last July and is slated for availability in the real world on July 9th, 2021. Weighing in at just under a pound and about 3.5″ long, the 8–25mm promises pro performance in a compact carryaround casing. With a 16–50mm 35mm equivalent field of view and a reasonably short 9″ minimum focusing distance (at all focal lengths), this little one covers a very versatile range of worldviews.
