Tucked away in a press release put out by Olympus Australia are details of a housing for the newly released E-M5 EVIL camera. The PT-E08 is a departure from previous Olympus housing designs as it features a lens port that is bayonet-mounted and replaceable. The standard underwater lens port will accept the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 II, M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 IIR and M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 9-18mm f4.0-5.6 lenses. Ports will also be available for two lenses; the ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 8mm f3.5 Fisheye and ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 50mm f2.0 Macro.
Prices and availability are still to be confirmed.
