A new 90 mm macro lens planned for 2023 for the Micro 4/3 mount at OM System


BRIEF // OM Digital Solutions Corporation, which has taken over the photo activities of Olympus, is continuing to develop the range of macro lenses in Micro 4/3 mount with the M.Zuiko 90mm F3.5, which is housed in the professional category.

OM System wants to reassure its customers and communicates today on the development of a new macro lens planned for 2023, which remains rather vague to say the least. The M.Zuiko Digital ED 90mm F3.5 Macro IS Pro will therefore complete its array of macro lenses, which already includes two references: the M.Zuiko Digital ED 30mm F3.5 Macro and M.Zuiko Digital 60mm F2.8 Macro . It is however the first Macro model to integrate the prestigious Pro line of the brand, which is generally characterized by excellent image quality, but also high prices.

Little information is available at this time. Its name, however, allows us to deduce that the new model will have optical stabilization, which will complement the mechanical stabilization present in the boxes, which is always a plus for close-up photography, especially with a focal length of 90 mm or 180 mm. in 24×36 equivalent. It is also known that the lens will be resistant to dust ingress and splashes (IP53 rating). What challenges is the reproduction ratio announced at 4:1 in 35 mm equivalent. It is therefore a magnification of 2:1 (the image will be twice as large as the subject) on the 4/3 sensor which will be offered with this new lens. This should delight lovers of close-up photography.
