Ready to get that close up?
Today, Olympus announced their latest iteration of their 75-300mm zoom lens the M.Zuiko ED 75-300mm II. Much like it’s predecessor, the 75-300mm zoom lens will provide an F-stop range of f/4.8-6.7 and anti-glare coating to hold up even under harsh lighting (all you outdoor photographers rejoice).
New to the 75-300mm II are the redesigned barrel to match the styling cues of the OM-D E-M5 and the circular aperture to ensure “professional-looking bokeh” (we will be very happy to test that out in a future post). The M.Zuiko ED 75-300mm II will also take advantage of the OM-D’s 5-axis image stabilization and near-silent focusing technologies to make this a capable video-capture lens.
The M.Zuiko ED 75-300mm II will be available beginning in March and will set you back about $550 (MSRP); for full specs be sure to hit the link.
