Our readers following Damian McGillicuddy tweets noticed that message between Damian and Olympus UK manager Mark Thackara. They chat about the “new zoom”. Easy to guess that this may be the 40-150mm f/2.8 lens. I am not 100% sure yet but I heard the lens will be on sale for January. This will be the first fast Olympus zoom lens and I expect it to be as good as the 35-100mm f/2.0 but hopefully a lot cheaper 🙂
In the meantime new 17mmf /1.8 image samples can be found at Lenstip and Sulanto. The lens can now be preordered at Adorama (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here). Let me know if you can find mroe preorder options. Thanks!
