- Olympus M. Zuiko ED 75mm f1.8 Portrait Camera Lens
The Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 75mm f1.8 portrait lens is a Micro Four Thirds mount lens made of a full metal housing with a high-speed, single-focal-length telephoto lens suitable for indoor, studio and portrait photography. It's a lens with a large and ultra-bright 1:1.8 aperture to ensure maximum and sharp image capture. It has a 58mm filter that is made of metal and focuses on a mechanical process called the "focus by wire" system. This large lens has a sophisticated design of 10 individual lens elements in 9 groups plus 2 HR lenses and 3 ED elements complimented with a 9 blade aperture that’s perfect for focusing. It also has an angle of view of 16°. This lens also uses an inner focus with screw drive mechanism via the fast MSC AF mechanism paired with a DC Motor that provides fast and low-noise focusing and for stable shooting of photos and videos. The M.Zuiko Digital portrait lens features its Olympus ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) Coating technology to completely minimize light flares and ghosts.
Product Features in Detail
High-grade portrait lens with focal length of approx. 150mm (35mm equivalent) and large f1.8 aperture
The M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 75mm f1.8 is a single focal length telephoto lens with a bright f1.8 aperture that delivers sharp, clear imaging performance ideal for studio, stage and indoor sports photography, as well as portrait shooting.
Perfectly corrected chromatic and spherical aberration
To correct the axial chromatic aberration that may be produced by telescopic lenses, this lens incorporates three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) elements in the front section, while, to correct the spherical aberration that tends to be produced with large-aperture lenses, two HR (High Refractivity) elements are incorporated in the rear section.
High-precision assembling technology
Each lens element is polished to an ultra-high level of working precision only possible with the advanced techniques developed by Olympus's master craftsmen and carefully assembled to ensure maximum accuracy and reliability. Superbly crafted and brilliantly designed, this lens boasts the top class image quality of any of our M.ZUIKO DIGITAL series lenses.
True circular defocusing with minimal vignetting
In order to achieve a nice, clean circular defocusing effect, vignetting has to be kept to a minimum and circular aperture diaphragm has to be used. When vignetting occurs, the defocusing on the periphery of the image is not a proper circle; instead, it is elliptical (like a rugby ball) or cornered due to the fact that light coming through the peripheral portion of the lens near the aperture is restricted because it is incident obliquely to the optical axis. This lens minimizes vignetting by passing all the light that enters the lens – even that on the periphery – directly through to the image sensor. Featuring 9 groups of 10 lens elements that make extensive use of special glass materials, the lens is able to accurately pass through all incoming light. In addition, the optical design of this lens also helps prevent double-line defocusing or edge coloration due to chromatic aberration.
ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating
To ensure clear imaging performance even under unfavorable conditions such as when shooting against the light, the lens surfaces are coated with Olympus's special ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating, which features high transmittance and the ability to completely eliminate previously hard-to-prevent artifacts such as ghosts and flares. The ZERO coating is an application of the thin film control technology Olympus developed thanks to its experience in multi-layer film deposition technology. Advantages include scratch resistance and durability thanks to the high film strength made possible by vacuum deposition, as well as clear imaging performance with high transmittance.
High-quality design with metallic finish and compact body with an overall length of 69mm
With its bright f1.8 aperture and bigger-than-life imaging performance, you would expect this lens to be much bigger than it is. Thanks to the extraordinary precision of our finishing process, we've been able to pack our best ever performer into a compact body with an overall length of just 69mm. To add the touch of class you would expect from a high-end product, we've finished this lens in a subtly textured metallic finish that reflects the high-quality design highly acclaimed with the PEN series and the OM-D. Together, the high-quality texture of the metallic finish and the large precision-polished glass lens element at the front with a diameter of roughly 50 mm convey a unique sense of power and sophistication that's sure to boost the user's pride of ownership. A dedicated metallic lens hood and lens cap matching the high-quality design of this lens are also available as optional accessories. Proper coordination of these accessories will be sure to enhance the attractiveness of this lens.
Fast, quiet autofocusing using the MSC mechanism
The fruit of advanced optical design technology, the MSC (Movie and Still Compatible) mechanism incorporated in this lens was developed to enable fast, quiet autofocusing with a reduced number of lightweight lens elements. By driving the focusing lens directly using a metallic shaft and feed screw finished with precision in the sub-micrometric order, rather than using a gear, which is the cause of operating noise, the MSC ensures ultra-quiet focusing and shooting. The inner focusing system that incorporates the MSC mechanism adjusts focusing by displacing only one small, lightweight lens element. This enables smooth autofocusing with high speed and low noise. The smooth autofocusing facilitates comfortable, stress-free movie shooting, as well as still image photography.
