CENTER VALLEY, Pa. -- Olympus announces the development of two new M.Zuiko lenses, adding to its award-winning Pro series line-up, the M.Zuiko Digital ED 7-14mm f2.8 Pro (14-28mm 35mm equivalent) and M.Zuiko Digital ED 300mm f4 Pro (600mm 35mm equivalent). Both Olympus lenses deliver first-of-its kind performance to the M.Zuiko Pro series and are scheduled to launch in 2015.

The M.Zuiko Digital ED 7-14mm f2.8 Pro is the first-ever wide-angle zoom lens in the M.Zuiko Pro series. This compact and lightweight lens maintains a dustProof and splashProof design to compliment the rugged durability of the Olympus OM-D E-M1 and E-M5. True to Zuiko standards, the M.Zuiko Digital ED 7-14mm f2.8 Pro features sharpness to the edges of the image and excellent performance for Professional use.

The M.Zuiko Digital ED 300mm f4.0 Pro lens is the first single-focal-length super telephoto lens in the M.Zuiko Pro series. Like other lenses in the Pro series, this new lens will deliver superb performance, complimented by compact, dustProof and splashProof construction.

When combined with the available M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm f2.8 Pro and the M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f2.8 Pro, expected to reach store shelves in the second half of 2014, the M.Zuiko Pro series will feature four different lenses that cover everything from super wide-angle to super telephoto zoom.
