According to the latest update to the M.Zuiko lens roadmap from Olympus, there are now three lenses on the horizon for 2020, including the highly anticipated 150-400mm F4.5 TC1.25x (pictured below) which received an earlier development announcement.

The 150-400mm lens features a built-in 1.25x teleconverter and covers a focal length range of 300-1000mm (35mm equivalent). With the MC-20 2.0x extender, this makes handheld super-telephoto shooting theoretically possible at 2000mm (35mm equivalent).

Most notably on this latest roadmap is the addition of the 8-25mm f/4 PRO lens. On the previous roadmap from November 2019, this lens was simply listed as “Pro Wide Zoom” so we now have confirmation of that one. A new PRO macro lens has also appeared right on the 100mm line, and the 100-400 and 150-400 lenses still exist in the plans.
