OM System OM-1 Mark II announced with new lenses

This week, we take a look at the (big?) announcement of a new OM-1 camera and 150-600mm lens from OM Digital Solutions (aka Olympus).

The OM-1 MkII is a surprise considering the OM-1 was released less than two years ago, and we’ll take a look at the new features and give our thoughts on upgrading. The OM System 150-600mm lens appears to be a reworked version of the Sigma 150-600mm lens that’s available in Sony E mount and Leica L mount already. However, on a M 4/3 camera, you have the equivalent of a 300-1200mm super telephoto lens, making this lens an interesting choice for bird and wildlife photographers who want extreme reach for small subjects.

Until we can get our hands on the OM-1 MkII to properly review, we’ll limit our discussion to features we’ve seen reviewed online.
