A German interview with Olympus Forum shared some interesting details about the future Olympus products. From the interview, looks like the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 150-400mm f/4.5 TC 1.25x IS PRO Lens will be available in late 2020. This will be an amazin companion for wildlife photography.
We don’t know the price of the lens but considering the old Olympus 90-250mm f/2.8 which was priced at $3999. This monster should have a price tag between $4000 and $6000. The company also have plans for a Mark II of PEN-F model. Lastly they want to make super fast f/2 zoom lenses for MFT system.
150-400mm PRO lens:
The lens will be on market by autumn 2020.
PEN-F is still in Stock but Olympus stopped the production. But Olympus has yet NOT decided if there will be a successor or not. Still, Olympus asked to customers what they think should be improved on a future PEN-F model
Super fast f/2.0 zooms:
Olympus wants to make lenses as small as possible an that’s why they didn’t make MFT versions of their older super fast f/2.0 zooms
He confirms in 2020 we will get new cameras and new lenses.
Designed for Micro Four Thirds system cameras the lens will provide a standard focal range of 300-800mm equiv. and with a built-in 1.25X teleconverter it becomes 375-1000mm equiv., at the cost of 2/3-stop of light. The lens will also be compatible with Olympus’ new MC-20 2X teleconverter.
