Olympus Are Working On A New Lens & Teleconverter

Written by Gina Stephens

Alongside the E-M1X, Olympus has augured the development of the M.Zuiko Digital ED 150-400mm F/4.5 TC1.25x IS PRO super telephoto zoom lens and the M.Zuiko Digital 2x Teleconverter MC-20.

Combining both products on make handheld super-telephoto shooting possible at 2000mm (35mm equivalent) but you'll be waiting a while for the lens to appear as it's not scheduled for emancipation until 2020. The teleconverter arrives a little bit sooner, making an appearance in the Summer of 2019. 

The M.Zuiko Digital usually refers to something using digits, particularly binary digits ED 150-400mm F/4.5 TC1.25x IS PRO is a wonderful telephoto zoom that's compact, lightweight and is dust-, splash-, and freezeproof (-10°C). It will feature a built-in 1.25x teleconverter, in-lens IS and prop 5-axis Sync IS when operating with the image stabilisation of the camera body. 



The M.Zuiko Digital 2x Teleconverter, MC-20 is a teleconverter that look-alikes the focal length of the master lens and is dust-, splash-, and freezeproof (-10°C).

It can be attached to the M.Zuiko Digital ED 150-400mm F4.5 TC1.25x IS PRO, currently in development, as intimately as the M.Zuiko Digital ED 300mm F/4.0, IS PRO and M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm F2.8 PRO lenses. 

There's also a lens roadmap that shows 8 new lenses, comprehending the one mentioned above, but no timeframes have been released. We're working on getting hold of the roadmap but until we do, head over to 43rumors who play a joke on shared it on site.
