The 7-14mm PRO lens from Olympus will ship in June according to BHphoto (Click here). This means we can expect it to be announced officially by Olympus sometimes in May. There is yet no availability info for the other new PRO lensese, the 300mm f/4.0 (here on BH) and the 8mm Fisheye PRO lens.
Here is a roundup of news around the new 7-14mm lens:
First impressions by tester Pen And Tell:
– Compared to the Four Thirds version lens the new MFT version is again much smaller and lighter.
– Autofocus is very fast and silent
– Focus wheel runs very smooth
– Close focus is impressive. I’ts 2cm from the end of the lens.
– Bokeh is very good
