Product Features in Detail

Both high-resolution/high-performance and compact size
This accessory possesses optical performance that rivals the popular Four Thirds High Grade (HG) series excellent depictive power and mobility. A logical lens design of 14 elements in 9 groups (2 ED lenses, 1 EDA lens, 2 HR lenses) enables a compact form and excellent depictive power.

Constant aperture fixed to f2.8, compact, lightweight form and superior depictive performance
This lens makes use of the Micro Four Thirds System standard, and while maintaining a compact and lightweight form, achieves a constant aperture value of f2.8 at all focal lengths, and also covers a standard zoom range of 24-80mm (35mm equivalent). In order to make a lens that exceeds the popular Four Thirds standard HIGH GRADE lens in image quality, high-performance, and compact lightweight form, the various types of lenses and the latest fabrication technologies were used. Thin, large-aperture cemented lenses that use HD lenses, aspherical lenses such as DSA (Dual Super Aspherical) lenses and EDA lenses, and lenses with ED/HR materials were used along with ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) lens coating for thoroughly removing ghosts and flaring. To produce natural defocused effects, 7 blades are used for the circular-shaped aperture.

ZERO coating thoroughly removes ghosts and flaring
Ghosts and flaring are highly transparent that they are difficult to prevent, however, .ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating was applied to the surface of the lens making it possible to throughly remove these phenomena. ZERO coating enables clear depictive performance even in backlit or other unfavorable conditions.

Dustproof and splashproof construction that expands shooting possibilities 
Equipped with dustproof and splashproof construction for greater shooting enjoyment when combined with a dustproof and splashproof camera body. Not only the end of the lens and mount that are protected, but sealing has been placed in 6 locations for improved dustproof and splashproof performance. Additionally, materials with waterproof and ventilation quality are used to maintain the air vents within the lens (which is cultivated on the Four Thirds standard HIGH-GRADE lens), and smooth zooming operation is maintained without compromising dustproof and splashproof performance.

Equipped with the MSC mechanism by use of a linear motor, for quick and silent auto focusing
The MSC (Movie and Still Compatible) mechanism equipped on this lens is the latest in optical design technology for achieving quick and silent focusing with a lightweight form and minimum number of lenses. The gears, which are the cause of operational noises, have been removed and a sub-micron precision metal axis (shaft) and fast-moving linear motor drive system is used for direct driving of the focusing lens. This lens employs an inner focusing system that uses the MSC mechanism, and focuses using a compact and lightweight focusing unit consisting of two cemented lenses. This results in an agile, silent focus drive for the world's fastest AF when combined with the OLYMPUS OM-D E-M1. Smooth autofocus operation makes for comfortable and enjoyable, stress-free still image and movie shooting.

The Manual Focus Clutch mechanism, an evolved version of the Snapshot Focus mechanism
This lens is equipped with the Manual Focus Clutch mechanism which makes manual focusing smoother, and which is evolved from the Snapshot Focus mechanism used on wide-angle lenses. When the focus ring is pulled toward the user, distance markers appear, making this feature useful not only for manual focusing, but also for instantly moving to a specific focal distance just as with Snapshot Focus. Additionally, because with the Manual Focus Clutch mechanism the focus ring is rotated within the distance markers rather than being endlessly rotated, it can be used in the same way as traditional manual focus lenses.

Macro shooting performance of a minimum focusing distance of 20cm at all focal lengths, with a maximum magnification of 0.6x (35mm equivalent)
A minimum focusing distance of 20cm at all focal lengths, without switching to macro mode is available, At the telephoto end, close-up shooting is available at 7cm from the front end of the lens, with a maximum magnification of 0.3x (0.6x, 35mm equivalent:). Because users can approach main subjects down to 9cm from the front of the lens at the wide-angle setting, wide-angle macro shooting with an exaggerated sense of perspective is possible, for a truly versatile lens.

Conforms to the Micro Four Thirds System standard designed for the professionals
This large-aperture standard zoom is of both high-performance, compactness and lightweight form at a constant aperture f2.8. This lens maintains the brightness of a constant aperture f2.8 for the perfect response to high-grade image creation.
