Officially announced this year just prior to Photokina in September, this telephoto zoom lens is the latest move in Olympus's drive to sway professional photographers away from their big, bulky DSLRs and into the more compact yet still high-performance OM-D family.

You don't see that type of image quality every day, and there's even a dedicated 1.4x teleconverter available for purchase if you need a longer reach.
