Olympus USA is not planning to sell the newly-announced M-Zuiko ED 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO lens and the MC-14 1.4x teleconverter in one kit, the company told Photographic Wanderings.
A company representative said that “at this time this bundle is not being offered in this region.”
Customers had hoped Olympus would offer the lens and converter as one discounted kit. While Olympus USA will not offer the bundle, this does not rule out it will be available in other countries.
The lens is available for pre-order at $1,499 and the converter for $349. They are supposed to reach customers in November (affiliate links to B&H):
