OlympusOlympus Zuiko Digital ED 14-35mm f2.8-4.0 SWD lens : Olympus released, next to its new E-3 DSLR camera, three new Zuiko Digital lenses and a tele converter. Among them is the Zuiko Digital ED 14-35mm f2.8-4.0 SWD lens. This 100% digital-specific optic incorporates Olympus’ new Supersonic Wave Drive technology, to provide ultra-fast, whisper-quiet auto focus (AF) speed, and offer several impressive distinctions. Two compact SWD devices power auto focus at a very high speed by exciting unique elliptical oscillations. The compact 5.3mm x 4.3mm optical encoder detects and controls the lens drive position using direct rotation detection without reduction gear. This enables it to achieve a level of precision that’s accurate to 5 microns.

When using the Zuiko ED 14-35mm SWD lens in combination with the new Olympus E-3, which offers improved AF computation and lens-body communication rates, the SWD motors provide fast focusing speed of approximately 170 ms (0.17 seconds). The new Zuiko Digital SWD lens will be manufactured at the Olympus Tatsuno Plant in Japan, which is equipped with state-of-the-art production technology in the field of optical equipment.

Olympus f2.0 standard zoom lens
The Zuiko Digital ED 14-35mm f2.0 SWD, which covers a zoom range equivalent to 28mm to 70mm on a 35mm camera lens is the world’s first standard zoom lens to feature a large f2.0 aperture. Boasting high imaging performance, this lens is a worthy addition to the Olympus Super High Grade (SHG) series of lenses. Together with the ED 7-14mm f4.0, ED 35-100mm f2.0 and ED 90-250mm f2.8 lenses, this lens completes Olympus’ series of professional zoom lenses with fixed F-values.

Olympus standard zoom lens
The Zuiko Digital ED 14-35mm is the flagship of the Zuiko Digital series, developed to meet the requirements of the most demanding professionals. It includes reliable splash- and dust-proofing, Olympus’ exclusive SWD-driven ultra-fast AF system, a mechanically interlocked manual focusing mechanism and a petal-shaped hood with a polarization filter control window. With its f2.0 aperture providing bright viewing with a sharp subject and a soft blurring of the background, this lens epitomizes the versatility, power and creative freedom made possible by the Four Thirds System and is ideal for almost any application – from landscapes and portraits to indoor shooting and photojournalism.

John Knaur, senior marketing manager, Digital SLR, Olympus Imaging America Inc stated: "With the new SWD lenses, we’ve got outstanding glass to match the high quality performance of our flagship E-3 digital SLR. In testing, the 14-35mm is the world’s first standard zoom lens to rival fixed focal length lens speed with a bright F2.0 aperture. This lens, in combination with the other introductions will fulfill many photographer’s focal length needs." The Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 14-35mm f2.0 SWD joins the existing Zuiko Digital 35-100mm f2.0 as the brightest fixed aperture lenses in their class. The Zuiko 14-35mm SWD lens will be available in the first quarter of 2008, at an estimated retail price of $2,299.99.
