- Compact, lightweight lens with fixed aperture
- Fast, accurate focusing
- Reduced ghosting and flare
High-performance, compact, lightweight
A small and lightweight focusing lens that enables high-speed, precise AF for any subject. The lens also features a dust, splash and freezeproof construction with sealing in 9 places to keep out dust and rain, providing peace of mind when shooting on the go.
Additionally, effective placement of aspherical lenses and ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating drastically reduces aberrations, ghosts, and flares for sharp, high-definition image quality. Suppressing loss of light at the edges of images makes it possible to obtain bright, clear depictive performance up to the very edges. Plus, with the fixed aperture across the entire focal length, it is easy to control the exposure when zooming and recording video.
Superb macro capabilities
Enjoy intense macro shooting with a maximum magnification of 0.25x (0.5x 35mm equivalent) across the entire zoom range. The closest focusing distance is 12cm wide-angle, and 23cm telephoto, delivering a wide range of macro shooting effects such as wide-angle macro shots that emphasize a sense of perspective by capturing vast backgrounds, and telephoto macro shots for more significant background defocusing effects. Diverse macro effects are possible, such as Focus Stacking.
