Olympus registered a new telephoto lens in Russia under the “IM014” code name. This is probably the highly anticipated Olympus 150-400mm f/4.0 PRO lens.

Olympus 150-400mm f/4.0 PRO announcement date is rumored to take place in the beginning of 2019 as the new lens could join the PRO series as weather sealed optic for Micro Four Thirds cameras.

As is known, the Olympus E-M1X camera is on the horizon and to be announce in early 2019. The first images and features list for the OM-D E-M1X has already leaked. The telephoto zoom lens should arrive along with the E-M1X camera. More details and speculation about the price after the break!

As MFT uses know the Olympus PRO lenses are high-quality lenses that provide a higher optical quality than usual and they have a price to match. The first of the series is the 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO lens, while the 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO lens released later in 2014. Shortly after that, the 7-14mm f/2.8 PRO and 300mm f/4 PRO lenses became available, too.

With f/4 constant aperture at the 400mm tele end, the Olympus 150-400mm f/4.0 PRO lens will be an exciting product.  Olympus could make it compatible with 1.4 teleconverter and this will make the lens have a reasonable size. These specs will make its price fit between $2,500 and $4,000.  When mounted on Micro Four Thirds cameras, the Olympus 150-400mm PRO lens will offer a 35mm focal length equivalent of 300-800mm.
