OlympusWith the very bright telephoto lens, ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 150mm F2.0, (35mm camera equivalent: 300mm) Olympus again extends the range of lenses for the Olympus E-System. Full compatibility with the TIPA Award-winning Four Thirds standard means this lens boasts a compact form for great portability and handling plus a large aperture. Its telephoto performance is coupled with high light-gathering power, making it ideal for capturing nature and sporting action. The F2.0 aperture also lets the user bring a shallow depth of field to the composition, allowing subjects to be beautifully framed by blurring the background. Optical precision is exceptional, ensuring very sharp and high-contrast images.
Olympus unveils ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 150mm F2.0 lensAn invaluable component of any professional’s kit, the ZUIKO DIGITAL ED150mm F2.0 will also be valued by all those who strive to achieve the visual impact of the best nature and sports shots.

Versatility
The ZUIKO DIGITAL ED150mm telephoto lens (35mm camera equivalent: 300mm) is extremely compact and light. This new generation lens offers distinct benefits through compatibility with the Four Thirds System, such as portability, high image quality and brightness.
- Dimensions: 100mm (diameter) x 146mm (length)
- Weight: 1,350g with tripod adapter

Very bright F2.0 aperture
The F2.0 aperture not only gives more scope for using a shallow depth of field, but also for shooting at high shutter speeds. The lens is therefore ideal for documenting a full range of high-speed movements, from the action of a sports scene to the swift motion of a wild animal.

Two ED lens elements
For superior lens performance, two ED lens elements minimise chromatic aberration, an effect often occurring with telephoto lenses. One of these is called a super ED lens element. This is particularly effective in reducing chromatic aberration because it has spectral characteristics similar to the fluorite elements which are also used for correcting this problem. Together, these two elements ensure first-class image quality in resolution and contrast.

New multi-coating
Significantly suppressing ghosting and image flare, a new multi-coating reduces the reflection over a wide range of light wavelengths.

Advanced floating mechanism
The optical system’s floating mechanism delivers sharp, high contrast images from close-up to infinity (shortest shooting range:1.2m).

Focus limit switch and focus stop button
To save the user precious time in focusing and offering that extra edge in getting the perfect shot, the focus limit switch limits the focus range.

Splash and dust proof construction
A special splash and dust proof construction protects the lens, allowing it to be used in a wide range of conditions.

Optics designed exclusively for digital photography
All ZUIKO DIGITAL lenses are designed to maximise the performance of digital SLRs based on the Four Thirds Standard. This enables full cross-manufacturer lens interchange ability among camera systems applying the standard, as well as the use of lenses that are small and light but also have a large aperture. Nearly telecentric optics ensure images have perfect colour, clarity and brightness from the centre to the periphery of the frame. The lenses’ high resolving power makes sure the image sensor obtains the detail it needs to achieve its full potential. Furthermore, thanks to their splash-proof construction, the ZUIKO DIGITAL lenses are also protected from the elements. The new ZUIKO DIGITAL ED150mm F2.0 is scheduled to go on sale in summer 2004.

Further information
The Olympus E-System is the world’s first digital SLR system to be based on the FourThirds Standard jointly developed by Olympus and Kodak. The professional system has been designed exclusively for digital photography. It currently comprises the Olympus E-1 SLR body plus a range of interchangeable lenses and other accessories.
