Olympus has introduced today a bunch of new products. I had again a change to get familiar with the new OM-D E-M5 II or E-M5 Mark II. More of it in my latest blog.
Don´t you think OM-D E-M5 II is kind of awkward? I think so. PEN series cameras are E-Pxxx and OM-D series has naming E-Mxxx, which makes both OM-D and PEN totally un-necessary. OM and PEN are history, why drag those along any more?
Olympus also introduced a new fisheye lens which belongs to PRO series and is quite compact. M.Zuiko 8mm f/1.8 PRO is the worlds fastest fisheye lens. I have touched it but not tried, so more of sometimes later. This lens like the previously announced 7-14mm PRO zoom will be available "during summer". Obviously this means Northern Hemisphere summer. The 300mm f/4 PRO tele will be available during the last half of this year.
As an intriguing little gadget Olympus has now a relector sight for tele shooters. I described this previously.
