Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 75-300mm 4.8-6.7

Features in Detail | Enlarged Image

The world's smallest and lightest 600mm (35mm equivalent) telephoto lens*, the M.Zuiko Digital ED 75-300mm 1:4.8-6.7 (150-600mm equivalent in 35mm photography) lens enhances Olympus' award-winning Micro Four Thirds lens system with an extraordinarily quick-focusing, compact telephoto lens that delivers excellent portability and outstanding image quality -- for HD movies and stills. The speed, compact size (2.8 x 4.6 inches) and light weight of the tiny telephoto lens makes it convenient to carry -- and easy to capture naturally expressive close-ups of children's faces, animals and landscape features. Its power and precision let users zoom right in on details they would otherwise miss, for example, the Statue of Liberty's face shot from the ground. The M.Zuiko Digital ED 75-300mm is also ideal for recording HD movies. It features a rear-focusing mechanism that comprises only two lens elements, making it exceptionally fast and nearly silent. This Olympus innovation enables users to capture stills and movies stress-free -- and eliminates the whir that can otherwise ruin movie playback on a High Definition TV.

Olympus MSC (Movie and Still Compatible) Micro Four Thirds lenses are the perfect choice for capturing amazing still photography and HD video with your Olympus PEN. A super-fast, smooth autofocus makes sure your subject is always the star and the silent focusing motor ensures pristine sound for your biggest productions.

* As of August 2010. The focal length of the M.Zuiko Digital ED 75-300mm 4.8-6.7 is equivalent to a 600mm focal length lens for the 35mm film standard.

Outstandingly Compact 4x Ultra-Telephoto Zoom Lens
This 35mm equivalent 150 - 600mm super telephoto zoom, 2.8 x 4.6 inches, weighing only 15.2 ounces, is the world's smallest and lightest 600mm equivalent lens. The Micro Four Thirds System breakthrough design allows dramatic reduction in camera size. The elimination of the mirror box paves the way for a cascade of size reductions, including cutting the size of the flange back in half (relative to the Four Thirds System) and reducing the lens mount diameter by about 6 mm, which in turn makes it possible to reduce the size of the lens itself. And all of this has been achieved without reducing the size of the sensor itself, assuring the same superior picture quality that is provided by the Four Thirds System.
Movie and Still Compatible Lens With Exceptionally Fast And Nearly Silent Rear-Focusing Mechanism
Olympus MSC (Movie and Still Compatible) Micro Four Thirds lenses are the perfect choice for capturing amazing still photography and HD video with your Olympus PEN. A super-fast, smooth autofocus makes sure your subject is always the star and the silent focusing motor ensures pristine sound for your biggest productions. The 75-300mm's rear focusing mechanism comprises only two lens elements, to enable remarkably fast and nearly silent focus when recording HD video recordings with sound.
Three HR (High-Refractivity) Lens Elements
A lens element made of optical glass with high refractivity is called an HR lens. This lens is excellent at correcting spherical aberrations and allows the lens size to be reduced without degrading imaging performance.
Two ED Glass Lens Elements And One Super ED Lens Element
ED lens elements are used to correct the color blurring noticeable when telephoto lenses are extended to their maximum focal length. Compared to an ordinary optical glass lens, the ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass lens presents extremely small changes in refractivity in the wavelengths from blue to red. It can improve the imaging performance of lenses by reducing chromatic aberration (a phenomenon caused by the dispersion of light produced by deviation of the focusing point due to color differences) that causes color fringing or contrast degradation.

A lens featuring improved optical characteristics over ED lens glass is called a Super ED lens. These lenses offer many advantages such as correction of the chromatic aberration in magnified images noticeable with an ultra-wide-angle lens or on the wide-angle side of a zoom lens, as well as prevention of deterioration in sharpness and contrast due to axial chromatic aberration of a telephoto lens.

Circular Aperture Mechanism
The circular aperture makes it possible to achieve smooth, uniform, soft background defocusing.
Digital Specific Lens™
Zuiko Digital lenses are designed to focus light straight into an imager's pixel wells, to fill every pixel consistently. It's optical technology that delivers an image filled from center to edge with rich, accurate color, high contrast and subtle gradation. Designed exclusively for digital photography, Zuiko Digital lenses provide a level of precision that's simply unattainable from a digital body using a traditional 35mm film lens.

Zuiko lenses feature a near telecentric design that ensures that the light hits the photodiodes at right angles, thus avoiding the problem of blurring at the edges of the image, or corner shading, which often occurs when using lenses originally designed for 35mm film cameras. Combined with the high resolution of Olympus Zuiko Digital lenses, this lens design exploits the full potential of the digital camera image sensors. The result is clear photos with strong colors and sharp contrasts right to the edges of the image. The telecentricity made possible by the digital-dedicated design of the Four Thirds System has been inherited by the Micro Four Thirds System, further ensuring the high picture quality performance of the system.

Smart System
M.Zuiko Digital lenses communicate image information directly to the Olympus E-System Digital SLR for a level of exposure accuracy that's beyond the capabilities of a passive lens. Two signal pins have been added to enable information exchange between the camera body and lens, and allow various extensions to be adopted in the future.
