Olympus interview at DC.watch.

Share


Yasuharu Mr. Yamada and Tsuyoshi Fukuda (both responsible for the 40-150mm lens design)

The Olympus 40-150mm PRO lens designers have been interview by DC.watch. There are many detailed information about the High Quality of material used by the new PRO zoom. Like Super ED lens, dual focus system and so on. And it’s also cool to see many of the pictures on DC.watch. Beside that there are also some more general info like:

1) The PRO lines’ goal is to beat the SHG lens series performance (like the Four Thirds Olympus 14-35mm f/2.0 (here on eBay) and the 35-100mm f/2.0 (here on eBay) lenses.

2) The upcoming 300mm PRO ha a f/4.0 aperture to allow a compact size and small weight. Mobility is high on our priority list.

3) If the request is high we will make very fast primes (43rumors note: Olympus already hinted that fast primes will come in 2015)

40-150mm PRO shipping info at:
In USA/Canada at Amazon, Adorama, Bhphoto, GetOlympus and GetOlympus Canada.
In Europe at Wex UK, Technikdirekt and Amazon.
In Asia at Digitalrev and Amazon Japan.

Photozone tests the Olympus 14-42mm EZ. And says the Panasonic PZ is the better option.

Photozone (Click here) tested the Olympus M.Zuiko 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 ED EZ

Combined with a small MFT camera such as the Panasonic GM1 or GM5, it is really a pocketable setup similar to a high-quality digicam. Unfortunately the reduced size comes at a price. The optical quality isn’t quite comparable to the best standard zoom lenses of the system.
Well, the king isn’t dead yet – the Panasonic Lumux G X 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 PZ Power OIS remains the best option in this class.
