Olympus has announced that they will release a limited run of a special, limited edition of the popular OM-D E-M5 Mk2. As a throwback to the classic OM-3Ti Film SLR from the 90s, the limited edition E-M5 MK2 is finished in titanium, and only 7,000 units will be made available worldwide. The limited edition EM-5 Mk2 also comes with a specially-crafted leather strap, a leather card case and owner’s card numbered from 1 to 7,000.

There’s price to pay for this finish—US$1,200 vs. US$1,050 for the standard edition, but hey, it’s a limited edition after all, and it’s not as exorbitant a premium to pay for compared to that German jewellery camera maker. It’ll be available in June 2015.

If Titanium-finished cameras or limited editions are not your thing but you love wide angle lenses. Olympus has announced two new lenses—the OlympusM.ZUIKO Digital ED 7-14mm f/2.8 PRO and M.ZUIKO Digital ED 8mm f/1.8 Fisheye PRO. Both lenses are lightweight and weatherproof.

The 8mm f/1.8 is a fisheye lens covering a 180º field of view and is compatible with Olympus’s underwater camera housing.

The 7-14mm f/2.8 PRO is a constant-aperture wide angle zoom covering the 35mm equivalent of 14-28mm. With 11 weather-sealing points, it can be used in the rain, snow or beach without any issues. The lens weighs 19oz (538g), which Olympus claims is 45% lighter than the competition.
