OlympusOlympus M. Zuiko Digital ED 75-300mm f4.8-6.7 lens : Olympus Imaging Corporation is pleased to announce the addition of a new lens to its Micro Four Thirds System lens line-up: the M. Zuiko Digital ED 75-300mm f4.8-6.7. Designed to maximize the performance advantages of the Micro Four Thirds System, the new Olympus 75-300mm lens offers uncompromising SLR quality and supports movie & still image compatibility. This addition enriches the M. Zuiko Digital lens lineup by covering the focal length from 18mm to 600mm in 35mm equivalent. The Olympus M. Zuiko Digital ED 75-300mm f4.8-6.7 will be available in December 2010 for an estimated retail price of 1020 EUR (¥112,350 incl.tax).

Olympus Zuiko 75-300mm

Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 75-300mm telephoto lens
The newly announced Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 75-300mm F4.8-6.7 lens is a super telephoto zoom that boasts a focal length range equivalent to 150-600mm on a 35mm camera. Previous lenses offering 35mm equivalent focal lengths of 600mm or more were invariably large, heavy, making it difficult for most users to enjoy the benefits of super telephoto shooting. The new Olympus Zuiko 75-300mm lens, however, takes advantage of the Micro Four Thirds System's high mobility to bring these benefits to a wide range of users. Although boasting a zoom range equivalent to 150-600mm on a 35mm camera, it weighs only 430g.

Olympus 75-300mm super telephoto shooting without tripod
Despite offering super telephoto performance equivalent to 150-600mm on a 35mm camera, the M. Zuiko Digital ED 75-300mm F4.8-6.7 weighs only 430g. It is less than 70% the size and the weight of the Zuiko Digital ED 70-300mm f4.0-5.6. A conventional SLR camera body and a lens with 600mm focal length (35mm equivalent) weighs more than 1500g. On the contrary, an Olympus PEN E-PL1 with this lens mounted weighs only 726g. Compact enough to enable handheld shooting at the equivalent of 600mm, its super telephoto zoom significantly expands shooting opportunities with its easy handling and outstanding portability.

Olympus 75-300mm lens offers excellent image quality
Include one piece of the Super Extra-low Dispersion lens and the two pieces of Extra-low Dispersion lens in order to eliminate effectively the chromatic aberrations. Three pieces of HR (high-refractive index glass) lenses reduce the size of the optics as well as various aberrations across the entire zoom range. All lens elements are multi-coated to ensure maximum light transmission and image clarity, with minimal ghosting and flaring in backlight. A circular aperture mechanism is used to ensure smooth, even background defocusing.

Olympus Zuiko 75-300mm lens compatibility
The new Olympus 75-300mm lens offers quieter and more responsive AF performance, and offers SLR image quality for still-image and movie shooting. The new Olympus Zuiko lens is compatible with all Micro Four Thirds System Olympus PEN cameras, and all other current and future cameras that comply with the Micro Four Thirds System standard. When mounted on an Olympus PEN camera, the 75-300mm lens supports the camera body's built-in image stabilization system and offer effective shake compensation at all focal lengths. The Olympus M. Zuiko Digital ED 75-300mm f4.8-6.7 will be available in December 2010 in the colours black and silver for an estimated retail price of 1020 EUR.
