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.

Join landscape photographer and Canson Infinity ambassador Robert Rodriguez Jr as he shares advanced workflows in the Lightroom 5 Develop module.  Developing images creatively  in Lightroom is more than just optimizing tonalities and color, it entails careful interpretation of the raw file to convey the essence of the image  effectively. Selective detail, subtle use of color, and local adjustments are some of the things Rodriguez demonstrates using the tools in the Develop module. He also explains why these adjustments are important and how they can contribute to better images. This is not about pre-sets, but rather being open to your personal creative vision.
