These two lenses are scheduled to be released from 2015 onward. When combined with the M. ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-40mm F2.8 PRO on sale now, and the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm F2.8 PRO scheduled to go on sale from the second half of 2014, the M.ZUIKO PRO series will feature four different lenses that cover everything from super wide angle to super telephoto.
