Six new lenses for spring (pictures)

In addition to notable lenses from Canon, Sigma, Pentax and more, Olympus revealed development plans for a pro 8mm f1.8 fisheye. Look out for updates if any more announcements come from the upcoming CP+ 2015 show.

Canon 11-24mm f4L USM

Boasting the widest angle non-fisheye full-frame zoom to date, Canon's professional 11-24mm lens is designed for better rectilinear performance rather than the fisheye look a lot of ultra-wide-angle lenses tend to provide. It's got all of the company's latest coatings and like other L lenses, is dust- and weather-sealed.

Available March 2015;
$3,000, £2,800, AU$4,000 (est.).

Available February 2015;
$1,200, £900 (est.), Australian pricing to come.

Olympus 14-150mm f4-5.6 II

The company finally updated its rather dowdy 14-150mm lens with the new build quality, manual-focus cuff and better dust- and splash-resistance. It's still a little slow, but should make a decent kit lens.

Available March 2015;
$600, £550, $800.
