In preparation for the upcoming release of the M.Zuiko 90mm f/3.5 Macro IS PRO lens, OM SYSTEM has released firmware updates for the E-M1 Mark II, E-M1 Mark III, E-M5 Mark III, E-M1X, and OM-5 cameras.

According to the release notes, the updated firmware optimizes the AF function of the cameras when the M.Zuiko 90mm is attached, suggesting the release of the new lens could be imminent.

We first learned about the new M.Zuiko 90mm lens last September, when OM SYSTEM announced that the M.Zuiko 90mm was in development. According to OM, the M.Zuiko 90mm would be the first “high-performance telemacro lens” in the M.Zuiko PRO series.

No official word on when specifically the M.Zuiko 90mm will launch, but if these firmware updates are any indication, it could be very, very soon. Stay tuned.
