Olympus PRO 7-14mm shipping delayed til late August!

GetOlympus (Click here) reports a new shipping date for the new 7-14mm PRO lens. It will now be available in late August only! Amazon US still says shipment starts on August 1 but I think they will change this soon too. I don’t know what’s the reason behind the new one month delay.

One more news: The lens got reviewed at ePhotozine:

Given the ‘Pro’ moniker assigned to this lens, expectations of its build and performance should be high. During testing this lens proved itself worthy, by delivering images with outstanding sharpness, whilst handling well and sporting a robust dust and moisture resistant construction. The lens may be a little prone to flare, but given the extreme angle of view on offer and the compact size of the lens, this flaw may be something many will be able to forgive, or even forget.

Additional notes to the Schneider decision to not make MFT lenses.


Schneider stated at Photoscala that the MFT sales on the worldwide market are dropping. And therefore it makes little sense for them to make lenses. But I think you don’t have to read too much into it because at the same time they also said they are considering to not make the FF lenses for Nikon and Canon they presented back at Photokina. I guess they simply saw little chance for them in the overall photo camera lens market. This is not a special MFT market problem.
