Cameras, Gadgets

Olympus has released a new version of its retro looking OM-D E-M1 digital camera complete with firmware upgrade, super-fast 40-150mm telephoto zoom lens and 1.4x teleconverter booster.

Olympus claims photographers with professional ambitions will be equally pleased with the E-M1’s beautiful new silver casing, new lens and compatible teleconverter. The extremely fast M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm 1:2.8 PRO (80-300mm, 35mm equivalent) is available with a booster for ultra-high zoom photography: the M.ZUIKO Digital 1.4x Teleconverter.

The silver E-M1 upgrade goes on sale in early October – at £1099.99 for the body only, or £1799.99 in a kit with the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-40mm 1:2.8 PRO lens. The new 40-150mm PRO zoom lens and 1.4x Teleconverter both follow in early November. The lens will cost £1299.99 with the teleconverter priced at £299.99. Alternatively, they will be available together for £1499.99.

The new firmware upgrade will be available for download to all E-M1 users from September 16, 2014.
