Eugene Tumusiime Creates Photos Straight from a Cyberpunk Daydream

“Over time, I gradually became invested in the idea of reimagining London as a cyberpunk metropolis,” the award-winning photographer Eugene Tumusiime tells me.

Olympus’ 75-300mm for MFT Gets an Upgrade

75_300_2best

This is about the same 75-300mm lens that you have seen and loved before with just a few fine-tuned adjustments. Starting from the top, the focus ring will remain the same. There is now a printed zoom range, effectively getting rid of the 35mm equiv. notice. The zoom ring will be the same, according to Olympus, even though it appears a bit different in photographs,and it will be available only in black with a new ZERO-Coating added. This coating is said to improve ghosting and flare throughout its range.

Olympus says that with this new lens you will be able to do hand-held super zoom shooting when combined with the 5axis stabilization of the OM-D. I’m not sure if this is a new addition or them just reminding us that they have the best stabilization method on the market.

The new lens will be shipping in March at a price of $549. The current model is available in both silver and black and is currently priced at $399 so there may possibly be some price drops on that.
