Olympus Launches Two New M.ZUIKO DIGITAL Lenses

Olympus is launching two stylish new prime lenses. Both the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12mm 1:2.0 (24mm*) wide-angle ‘Street Photography’ lens and the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 45mm 1:1.8 (90mm*) ‘Portrait’ lens come from the celebrated Olympus optical division that also supplies the lenses for the Olympus SLR cameras. Both lenses benefit from the advanced Image Stabilisation built into the PEN bodies.

With fast apertures the latest two additions to the Olympus specialist Micro Four Thirds lenses are ideal for shooting in low light situations and especially in the case of the 45mm, generating impressive background blur. Their premium casing, superb optical performance and compact, lightweight design makes both lenses a perfect match for the Olympus PEN range. PEN delivers SLR-quality imaging from easy-to-use system cameras that are small enough to fit in a jacket pocket or handbag.

The M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12mm 1:2.0 wide-angle Street Photography lens is available for around £700 from early July 2011.  The M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 45mm 1:1.8 Portrait lens costs under £300 and will be available in September.
