(FT5) Olympus 150-400mm PRO lenswill be announced tomorrow and cost $7,499 according to BHphoto

Two details make it likely that the new Olympus 150-400mm PRO lens will cost $7,499:

  1. If you go on this BHphoto search page you will find that BH only find the lens if you set the price at $7,499.
  2. Our reader John spotted this: The lease life shows that the lens would cost you $9600 over the term of the lease.  If you back out the interest cost on the lease, it brings the price of the lens down to $7500.

Announcement tomorrow?

Oly Forum will hold a live chat with Olympus tomorrow at 19:00 Berlin time. They teased that there will be info about something that is now still “confidential”.

I do hope the pricing is a typo. It really makes no sense at all! I hope sources reading this post will send me the real price info :)
