The first image of the almost final version of the upcoming Olympus 300mm f/4 PRO IS lens has been leaked online. The new Olympus 300mm f/4 PRO lens added in lens stabilization (a new IS on/off switch).
Olympus has developed this 300mm f/4 PRO lens for two years, so I believe this new Olympus 300mm f/4 PRO lens will be announced soon. And the previous rumors said that Olympus 300mm f/4 PRO Lens will be released in Spring 2016. And the price of this new pro lens is rumored to between 1799 – 1999€, around $2,000 in US.

- Dust- and splash-proof construction and looks to be roughly the same size as the 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO.
- IS on/off switch (in lens stabilization)
- Minimum focus distance: 1.4m
- Focus limiter switch
- To be released in Spring 2016
