Olympus has announced the development of two new professional-class lenses for its interchangeable-lens cameras: the ultra-wide angle M.Zuiko Digital ED 7-14mm f/2.8 PRO zoom and the super-telephoto M.Zuiko Digital ED 300mm f/4 prime lens.

The new lenses feature high-quality optical design and glass technologies to ensure high image resolution, edge-to-edge sharpness and correction of optical aberrations. The M.Zuiko Digital ED 7-14mm f/2.8 PRO is the first ultra wide-angle zoom lens in the M.Zuiko PRO series. With an equivalent zoom range of 14-28mm in 35mm format, it is compact and lightweight.
The M.Zuiko Digital ED 300mm f/4 PRO is the first super-telephoto prime lens in the M.Zuiko PRO series. With an equivalent focal length of 600mm (in 35mm format), it has superior long-distance capabilities and provides high mobility for super-telephoto photography in the field. Both lenses are fully splash- and dust-proof.
Both lenses are scheduled to be available in 2015. When launched, they will complete a quartet of professional quality fast-aperture lens options for OM-D and PEN camera photographers, which also includes the current M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO standard zoom, and the previously announced M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO telephoto zoom lenses. Mock-ups of both lenses will be displayed at the CP+ Camera & Photo Imaging Show in Yokohama, Japan, from 13th February 2014. Details will be published at www.olympus.com.au.
