Olympus 7-14mm f2.8 Hinted to Drop Soon for $1,799

M.Zuiko ED 7-14mm f2.8 Pro

Olympus originally announced a new M.Zuiko 7-14mm f2.8 back in February at CP+ and very soon it could finally be introduced. Supposedly the new wide-angle zoom could cost $1,799, according to 43 Rumors this would make it priced very similarly to the four thirds version Olympus made for its DSLR line. Except this version has a full-stop faster.

With a 14-28mm equivalent focal length, the new lens should be great for capturing entire skyscrapers in one shot and general fans of wide-angle lenses. Like most of Olympus’ pro line lenses we expect this one will have an impeccable build quality and extremely high quality results.

Curiously enough there’s still no word or a price for the 300mm f4 that was originally announced alongside the 7-14mm 2.8. But between this 600mm equivalent lens that should be coming down the pipe and the 7-14mm, Olympus micro four thirds owners have a lot to look forward to.
