Olympus has announced a new wide-angle zoom lens ideally suited for landscape, cityscape, and travel photography, as well as video applications. The M.Zuiko Digital ED 8-25mm f/4.0 PRO lens is a compact, weather-sealed gem enabling high-resolution capture with edge-to-edge sharpness, even at its maximum aperture. This Micro Four Thirds mount lens provides the 35mm focal length equivalent of 16-50mm, which is a truly versatile set of wide-angle focal lengths. The fixed f/4 maximum aperture enables consistent exposure throughout the zoom range and sufficient light gathering for working in dim conditions. Its minimum aperture is f/22 and its minimum focus distance is 9.1" (.23m) at all focal lengths. The aperture consists of seven rounded blades. M.Zuiko Digital ED 8-25mm f/4.0 PRO lens This is a premium Olympus lens, constructed of 16 elements in 10 groups, including one DSA (Dual Super Aspherical) lens, two Aspherical ED lenses, and one Super ED lens. Its high-speed imager autofocus system is designated MSC (Movie & Still Compatible) for quick and quiet performance, and it utilizes a VCM image-stabilization mechanism. As mentioned, the lens touts a compact form factor, and is weatherproof and dustproof with fluorine lens coating. It weighs just 14.5 oz (411g) and is 3.5" (88.5mm) long. The filter size diameter is 72mm and the lens is supplied with the LH-76E Lens Hood. We would love to know your thoughts on this new Olympus lens and get a sense of what subject matter you would photograph with these focal lengths. Please let us know in the Comments section, below.

Nikon has just announced the first macro lenses to join the Z-mount lineup: the NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S and  NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8. Both lenses allow Nikon mirrorless shooters to achieve a 1:1 magnification ratio with native Z-mount lenses—no need to rely on the FTZ adapter with F-mount lenses or extension tubes. Whether you are photographing flowers, insects, jewelry, portraits, or other creative macro subjects, these lenses promise exacting image rendering with minimal distortion. NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S The 105mm f/2.8 VR S, the newest member of the premium S-series lens family, features a dual motor multi-focus STM system for quick, quiet, and reliable focusing as close as 11.4" (0.29m). A manual focusing ring is also included for fine-tuning focus. At its closest range, the maximum aperture of the lens bumps up to f/4.5. To keep images sharp, the 105mm offers 5stops of vibration reduction and 5-axis stabilization when used with a Z-series camera. Optically, this lens uses Nano Crystal Coat and ARNEO Coating to cut back on distortion for sharp, consistent image rendering. A digital display is incorporated on the lens barrel to keep track of aperture and subject distance easily. For a tailored shooting experience, an L-Fn button can be customized to your needs and a customizable control ring can be set to adjust aperture, exposure compensation, or ISO settings. A focus limiter switch is also included on the lens barrel to speed up focusing. Outdoor photographers will appreciate that this lens is weather sealed and features a fluorine coating on its front element to repel water, dirt, and oil. In addition to eliminating the need for a lens adapter, the lens weighs 625g compared to 720g for its F-mount equivalent, making handheld capture easier. NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8 The 50mm f/2.8 serves as an excellent first macro lens capable of capturing a wider field of view than its larger sibling. Weighing just 250g, it serves as one of the lightest Z-series lenses, making it perfect for carrying out into the field. A minimum focusing distance of 6.3" (0.16m) allows you to get extremely close to subjects for creative effect. A manual focusing ring, AF/MF switch, and focus limiter switch are all included on the lens to streamline capture. Film shooters will appreciate that this lens is compatible with Nikon’s ES-2 Film Digitizing Adapter for scanning negatives. New Lenses in Development Tagged onto the end of the macro lens announcement is a smaller notice that Nikon has even more Z Series lenses in development. The roadmap has been updated to include the NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8 and NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2. These compact and lightweight full-frame lenses will provide Z Series shooters with small, yet sharp and high-quality optics. The 28mm is an ideal pick for everyday use and street while the 40mm is a more natural perspective and bokeh. Both are expected to release in 2021. Which of Nikon’s new 1:1 macro lenses work best for your style of photography? Are the new lenses in development going on your wish list? Share your thoughts in the Comments section, below!
