OM Digital Solutions officially launched their next OM System lens this morning, the M.Zuiko Digital ED 90mm F3.5 Macro IS PRO. Some of the key features of this new 90mm macro lens include 2x magnification and 4x (4x/8x equivalent on 35mm) when paired with the MC-20 2x teleconverter.
The new OM 90mm lens also offers high-speed autofocus; on-board 5-axis image optical stabilization; IP53-rated weather-sealed splashproof and dustproof construction; AF/MF clutch with focus and magnification markings; freezeproof down to 14°F (-10°C); fluorine coating and more. Priced at around $1500, the M.Zuiko Digital ED 90mm F3.5 Macro IS PRO, as its name suggests, is designed for pros and advanced enthusiasts who don’t mind spending a bit more for a premium lens for close-up photography.
Our colleagues at Imaging Resource, Outdoor Photographer‘s sibling site, got their hands on this new macro lens already and posted this product preview.
“Though I’ve only had a short amount of time to test out the new 90mm Macro lens so far, the image quality I’ve seen from this lens is definitely impressive — though given the excellent legacy of previous Zuiko Pro lenses, I wasn’t expecting poor performance,” wrote IR’s managing editor, William Brawley.
“Images are extremely sharp, both at the center and in the corners — and even wide open. Despite being a macro lens, the 90mm F3.5 can work perfectly well as a normal short telephoto lens, too.”
