OM System 12-40mm F2.8 PRO II Lens Announced, Priced $999, Available for Pre-Order

Along with the OM-1 Camera (Amazon/ B&H/ Adorama), OM System also announced the new OM System 12-40mm F2.8 PRO II Lens. It is a second-generation wide-angle to mid-range telephoto zoom lens. It’s nearly identical to its predecessor, with the exact same optical design and overall feature set, but does offer improved weather resistance with an IP53 rating, which should pair well with the new OM Systems OM-1 Micro Four Thirds camera system. Autofocus (AF) is driven via OM Systems’ Movie & Still Compatible (MSC) AF system, which OM Systems claims ‘benefits both photo and video applications due to its smooth, quiet, and fast performance.

This new lens costs $999, available for pre-order at Amazon/ B&H/ Adorama. It will start shipping from March 3, 2022. Read More »
