Olympus 7-14mm f/2.8 Pro M.Zuiko Digital ED
(From Olympus lens literature) The M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 7-14mm F2.8 PRO is the ideal lens for wide-angle shooting needs in any condition. This premium lens includes weather sealing in 11 locations, enabling use in rain and snow, or even on the beach, where other lenses may not be able to withstand ocean spray or dust penetration. At 534 grams, or just under 19 ounces, the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 7-14mm F2.8 PRO is about 45 percent lighter than similar competitor products, eliminating heavy equipment that may slow the user down.
The lens also includes premium close-up shooting capabilities, thanks to the minimum working distance of just 7.5cm, offering extremely sharp capture capability, even at the very edges of an image. Three Super ED lenses, one ED lens and two EDA lenses help to minimize peripheral chromatic aberration, while the ZERO (Zuiko Extra-Low Reflective Optical) Coating aids in minimizing ghosting. The lens also boasts an L-Fn button with 27 assignable functions and a Manual Focus Clutch with built-in Hyper Focal Scale. The M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 7-14mm F2.8 PRO lens comes with a fixed lens hood and pinch-style lens cap LC-79 for added protection.
When used in conjunction with core OM-D technologies, like 5-axis image stabilization, the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 7-14mm F2.8 PRO opens the user up to new possibilities for long exposure hand-held shooting.
The M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 7-14mm F2.8 PRO lens will be available in June 2015 (black) for an estimated street price of $1,299.99 (US) and $1,599.99 (Canada).
