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.

We are pleased to announce three lens model updates to the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital Lens roadmap, including the addition of the ultra-compact M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-45mm F4.0 PRO and super-telephoto M.Zuiko Digital ED 100-400mm F5.0-6.3 IS lenses. We have also added a PRO series telephoto zoom lens. All lens models are compatible with the Micro Four Thirds® System standard.
These lenses are in addition to the previously-announced M.Zuiko Digital ED 150-400mm F4.5 TC1.25x IS PRO super telephoto zoom lens. It features a 1.25x built-in teleconverter and covers a focal length range of 300 – 1000mm (35mm equivalent). The combination of this lens with the MC-20 2.0x teleconverter makes handheld super telephoto shooting possible at 2000mm (35mm equivalent).
With these new products Olympus will further expand its telephoto lens lineup, maximizing the advantages of the Micro Four Thirds® System, including excellent image quality, compact lightweight systems, and superior image stabilization performance.
Olympus Corporation is pleased to announce updates to the M.Zuiko Digital lens roadmap.
In addition to the previous development announcement of the M.Zuiko Digital ED 150- 400mm F4.5 TC1.25x IS PRO lens, Olympus will continue to expand the M.Zuiko Digital lens lineup, adding the ED 12-45mm F4.0 PRO standard zoom lens and the ED 100-400mm F5.0-6.3 IS super telephoto zoom lens. These three lenses and their detailed specifications will be officially announced in 2020. Further information will be available at the time of the official announcements.
An additional PRO telephoto zoom lens of an unspecified focal length will also join the M.Zuiko family, part of Olympus’ commitment to the market to broaden the field of photographic expression.
