Olympus has released an updated lens roadmap showing three new lenses, including two new PRO lenses, as well as an affordable telephoto zoom lens.
According to the new M.Zuiko digital lens roadmap these lenses are the M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-45mm F4.0 PRO, M.Zuiko Digital ED 100-400mm F5.0-6.3 IS and an as yet unspecified “pro telephoto zoom” lens.
The ED 100-400mm f/5.0-6.3 IS lens will give a 200-800mm equivalent and should give a more budget friendly entry into the super telephoto zoom arena. There are additional PRO lenses shown, including two telephoto zoom lenses, one wide-zoom lens, and a range of “bright prime lenses”, however details have not yet been released for these.
