MFT lenses from Olympus

Ever since launching its first Four Thirds cameras in 2003, Olympus has provided its equipment users with roadmaps of new lens releases to help them plan their system development. This welcome tradition has continued in the era of mFT. The latest Olympus roadmap was published in January 2019 and contains at least eight new lenses that will be launched over the coming months.

So what has the company currently in the pipeline? The only lens that is explicitly named on the roadmap is the M.Zuiko 150-400mm F4.5 TC1.25x IS Pro with a scheduled release in 2020. Most of the other forthcoming Olympus optics also expand the company's PRO range of high-quality, weather-proof lenses. There will be a wide-angle zoom (10-25mm?), a new standard zoom (12-35mm?), two new telephoto zooms (perhaps 50-200mm and 70-240mm?), as well as several bright prime lenses. – In the non-PRO, more budget-friendly segment, there will be a new super tele-photo zoom lens (possibly a 100-400mm?) and a new travel zoom – the ED 12-200mm f/3.5-6.3 that was announced in February 2019. The system thus keeps growing...

Olympus m4/3 lenses

Since the Olympus PEN E-P1 was launched in June 2009 with two lenses, a largely complete lens catalog has been built up. Indeed, there have been more lenses released by now from Olympus for m43 than for the predecessor system, Four Thirds. Below is a categorized overview of all mFT lenses available from Olympus. Similar listings, respectively, of all mFT lenses (across all manufacturers that support the system) and all Four Thirds lenses are available separately.

Further Reading

One advantage of the Micro Four Thirds system is that it is supported by several lens manufacturers. Thus, even though you might primarily be an Olympus shooter, having a look also at the Panasonic roadmap or the mFT lens compendium will provide a more comprehensive view on where the system is going. Also, in case you are interested to see how a particular camera-lens combination looks, check out the matching tool at four-thirds.org.
