Photography News: Olympus Has Just Announced Two Lens Kits -- a Portrait Kit With 45mm f/1.8 and 75mm f/1.8 Lenses and a Travel Kit With 14-150mm f/4-5.6 and 17mm f/1.8 Lenses

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 24, 2016) - B&H Photo would like to share the announcement of the Olympus Travel Kit, with 14-150mm f/4-5.6 and 17mm f/1.8 lenses and Portrait Kit, with 45mm f/1.8 and 75mm f/1.8 lenses designed for Micro Four Thirds format mirrorless cameras. These kits offer a pair of lenses well-suited to their named subject matter, along with the appropriate lens hoods, lens caps, and soft cases.

With the Travel Kit, photographers will benefit from a versatile wide-angle to telephoto zoom in the form of the M.ZUIKO ED 14-150mm f/4-5.6 II lens, which offers a 28-300mm equivalent focal-length range that can capture a variety of subjects, both near and far. This lens uses a combination of specialized elements to minimize aberrations, and sports a ZERO coating to reduce ghosting and flare. Also, it features an MSC AF motor for fast, accurate focusing, and benefits from a splash-, dust-, and freeze-proof design to handle the weather on any adventure. Paired with this zoom is a compact and bright M.ZUIKO Digital 17mm f/1.8 with a 34mm equivalent focal length. This perspective is useful for everyday shooting, and will not add significant weight to a travel bag.

In the Portrait Kit, shooters will find two telephoto options that will help to create flattering images of models and other subjects. The M.ZUIKO Digital ED 45mm f/1.8 is a short telephoto option with an equivalent focal length of 90mm, and a fast f/1.8 aperture to help separate subjects from their background. It also benefits from an MSC AF motor for fast, near-silent focusing performance. Bundled with it is a longer M.ZUIKO Digital ED 75mm f/1.8 lens with a 150mm equivalent focal length, which adds additional reach and shallower depth of field. To ensure the best optical quality, this lens utilizes multiple specialized elements and a ZERO coating and, like the 45mm, it uses an accurate MSC AF motor.
