Olympus 75 mm lens

Posted on Updated on

Olympus has added a new lens to the Micro Four Thirds family of lenses with the release of the M.Zuiko Digital ED 75 mm f/1.8 High-Grade Portrait Lens (150mm equivalent).

The metal-bodied lens has a nine-blade circular aperture unit delivering defocused backgrounds, while the high-quality optical design keeps the subject in sharp focus. This is due to an advanced optical design incorporating 10 lens elements in nine groups, making extensive use of special glass materials, including three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) elements to optimally correct aberrations.

Olympus’ exclusive ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical Coating) lens coatings are applied to the elements to reduce reflectance to a level that is half that of conventional coatings.

With a total length of just 2.7 inches, the new lens is small, a great fit with Pen and OM-D compact system cameras.

The lens employs Olympus’ MSC (Movie & Still Compatible) autofocusing mechanism featuring an inner focus system for fast and quiet focusing. A precision-touch metallic focus ring provides easy manual focusing.

A lens hood is an optional extra.

The Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 75 mm f/1.8 High-Grade Portrait Lens will be available in the summer at an estimated street price of $899.99.
