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.

Sony has just announced the fourteenth lens to join its coveted G Master lineup: the ultra-compact, ultra-fast, and ultra-wide 14mm f/1.8 GM Lens. Ideal for capturing landscape, architecture, and astronomical subjects, as well as creative portraits and close-ups, this low-distortion prime delivers the optical quality that has come to characterize Sony’s top tier of lenses while remaining impressively compact and lightweight. The new lens is Sony’s widest G Master prime to date. Combine its expansive reach with a fast f/1.8 aperture and you have a lens that is perfect for low-light capture—and especially well-suited for wide-field astrophotography. In total, it consists of 14 elements in 11 groups, with special design consideration paid to combatting the types of distortion that can plague ultra-wide-angle lenses. First, there are two XA (extreme aspherical) elements and one aspherical element to minimize aberration and sagittal coma flare, ensuring accurate image capture. Super ED and ED glass are used to suppress chromatic aberration, and Nano AR Coating II takes care of ghosting and flare. Resulting images exhibit very little distortion and maintain corner-to-corner sharpness, reducing time spent in post. Although most will choose this lens for capturing distant subjects, it can focus as close as 9.8" for creative close-up applications. Two XD linear motors ensure quick and quiet focusing for stills and video. G Master veterans will be surprised by how small and light this lens is. Its design becomes even more impressive when compared to Sigma’s 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art Lens, which weighs a whopping 2.6 lb, more than double that of Sony’s lens, which comes in at just a hair over 1 lb. Similarly, its 3.3 x 3.9" dimensions make this a lens that is equally easy to carry on-camera or in a bag. Such a compact and lightweight design makes this lens easily adaptable for gimbal or tripod usage for achieving steady footage. Many of the tactile controls of past G Master lenses are also incorporated into this one, including a customizable focus hold button, a de-click switch for the aperture, and a manual/autofocus switch. A built-in lens hood serves the dual purpose of blocking flare and protecting the bulbous front of the lens from accidental damage. A protective lens cap that goes over the hood is included for when the lens is not in use. Since the shape of the lens is not suited to front filters, a rear filter holder is included and a template provided for cutting custom filters. Like previous G Master lenses, the 14mm f/1.8 is dust and moisture resistant, which makes sense because this is a lens that begs to be taken outdoors. Although you cannot rely on a front filter for protection, a fluorine coating has been applied to repel dust, dirt, and liquids from its surface. Are you excited about Sony’s latest G Master lens?
