Olympus Portrait and Travel Lens Kits for Micro Four Thirds Announced


If you are looking to expand your Micro Four Thirds lens portfolio, Olympus has just put together two kits that can help you out: a Travel Kit, with 14-150mm f/4-5.6 and 17mm f/1.8 lenses and a Portrait Kit, with 45mm f/1.8 and 75mm f/1.8 lenses. These kits offer a pair of lenses well suited to their names, along with the appropriate lens hoods and soft cases.

With the Travel Kit, photographers will benefit from a versatile wide-angle to telephoto zoom in the form of the M.ZUIKO ED 14-150mm f/4-5.6 II lens, which offers a 28-300mm equivalent focal-length range that can capture a variety of subjects, both near and far. This lens uses a combination of specialized elements to minimize aberrations and sports a ZERO coating to reduce ghosting and flare. Also, it features an MSC AF motor for fast, accurate focusing and benefits from a splash-, dust-, and freeze-proof design to handle the weather on any of your adventures. Paired with this zoom is a compact and bright M.ZUIKO Digital 17mm f/1.8 with a 34mm equivalent focal length. This perspective is useful for everyday shooting and will not weigh your bag down during your travels.


In the Portrait Kit, shooters will find two telephoto options that will help you create flattering images of models and other subjects. The M.ZUIKO Digital ED 45mm f/1.8 is a short telephoto option with an equivalent focal length of 90mm and a fast f/1.8 aperture to help separate your subject from the background. It also benefits from an MSC AF motor for fast, near-silent focusing performance. Bundled with it is a longer M.ZUIKO Digital ED 75mm f/1.8 lens with a 150mm equivalent focal length, which adds additional reach and shallower depth of field. To ensure the best optical quality, this lens utilizes multiple specialized elements and a ZERO coating and, like the 45mm, it uses an accurate MSC AF motor.
