New York, NY (PRWEB) January 29, 2014
Olympus today introduced five brand new digital imaging innovations (three cameras and two lenses) for its spring lineup. Available now for pre-order at Adorama, one of the world’s largest photography, video, imaging and electronics retailers, the brand new Olympus digital cameras include the E-M10, an interchangeable lens camera from its award-winning OM-D family; the Olympus STYLUS® SP-100, the world’s first-ever camera with a built-in dot-sight for tracking moving subjects; and the super TOUGH® STYLUS® TG-850 camera designed for the most rugged adventure. Accompanying the outstanding camera lineup are two new Micro Four Thirds lenses. The super-slim M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 EZ pancake zoom lens measures just .9 inches thick, making it the world’s slimmest standard zoom lens. It has a smooth electric zoom that is suitable for shooting movies, and can also be zoomed in and out remotely using compatible smartphones through the updated Olympus Image Share app. The super bright, lightweight, high-performance M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 25mm f1.8 lens has a fixed focal length and is ideal for capturing portraits or close-ups from as little as 9.8 inches away.

New Olympus Micro Four Thirds Accessories
A host of new Micro Four Thirds accessories join the Olympus Micro Four Thirds lineup, including the fixed-aperture F8.0 Fish Eye Body Cap lens with a focal length of 9mm (35mm equivalent: 18mm). It’s an ultra-slim accessory for creative wide-angle shooting through its five-element, four-group lens construction. The multi-use lens barrier MF lever switches from pan focus shooting to close up eight-inch shooting with a single press of the lever. The ECG-1 matching ergonomic grip is a removable grip exclusively for use with the E-M10. Designed for absolute comfort, the grip is the perfect thickness for resting the ring finger and pinky when holding the camera. A single press of the lever on the bottom of the grip easily removes it, making replacing batteries and memory cards seamless. The MCON-PO2 macro converter is compatible with six Olympus Micro Four Thirds lenses and adapts them for close-up shooting. Finally, the Automatic Opening Lens Cap LC-37C is available exclusively for use with the new M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 EZ. When the camera is turned off, this accessory protects the lens from dust and scratches, and when the camera is powered on the lens cap instantly opens for snapshots and quick shooting.
