- Olympus M. Zuiko Digital 75-300mm F4.8-6.7 Telephoto Zoom II Lens (For OM-D & PEN Cameras)
Olympus M. Zuiko Digital 75-300mm F4.8-6.7 Telephoto Zoom (For Pen Cameras) is an ideal long zoom lens for distant sports action and nature photography. It covers an incredible film camera lens range of 150-600mm in a highly portable size. Boasting with a maximum aperture of f4.8, focal length of 75mm - 300mm, 0.9m closest focusing distance, and a very fast auto-focus function (MSC) for taking rapid-fire still shots. It features ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating for reduced reflection and circular aperture diaphragm for soft-focus backgrounds. This lens also has updated professional-grade multi-coating.
Product Features in Detail
The 75-300 II, Extreme Reach, Extraordinarily Small Size
The 75-300 II has an extremely long lens reach equivalent to a 150-600mm lens in the 35mm film format. This allows you to bring far away subjects really close. Perfect for sport action, nature & wildlife, landscape vignettes and macro photography. At full zoom, focus from as near as 1.5m away for outstanding macro shooting ability (0.9m min. focus at 75mm) This lens is suited for sports, action, very distant wildlife and nature photography.
High Performance Optics
Profesional grade extra low dispersion and high refraction lens elements ensure high sharpness and and clarity throughout its zoom range. Olympus' MSC technology ensures that auto focusing with this lens will always be extremely quick and quiet when taking both stills and videos.
Super-telephoto shooting in a compact, lightweight, affordable lens
Conventional super-telephoto lenses with a focal length of 600mm (35mm equivalent) tend to be big, heavy and expensive, making high-quality telephotography inaccessible to all but professionals and a few privileged amateurs. That's all about to change with the introduction of this new lens from Olympus. Leveraging the unique advantages of the Micro Four Thirds System standard, this lens achieves super-telephoto performance equivalent to 150-600mm on a 35mm camera, while weighing in at just 423 grams, the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 75-300mm f4.8-6.7. That light weight, along with a super-compact, palm-size design, means that this lens is truly mobile, so you'll be able to shoot with ease from a variety of angles, while moving around freely. And in keeping with Olympus's goal of making high-end photography an easily accessible pleasure, this lens will be available at a much lower price than the previous model. There's never been a simpler or more affordable way to expand your range of photography.
ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating
The lens surface is treated with the ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating, which completely eliminates ghosts and flares to ensure clear, sharp imaging even under unfavorable conditions such as backlight shooting. An offshoot of Olympus's thin film control technology and multilayer film deposition technology, the ZERO coating technology not only features high transmittance to support clear imaging performance in the lens, it is also resistant to scratches and degradation thanks to the high film strength made possible by vacuum deposition.
Sophisticated optics with multiple high-performance lens elements
The optical system includes one Super ED (Extra-low Dispersion) lens element and two ED lens elements, effectively eliminating the chromatic aberrations that tend to degrade the image quality of conventional telephoto lenses. Three HR (High Refractive index) lens elements are also used to reduce the size of the optical system, as well as to achieve excellent imaging performance across the entire zoom range.
Circular aperture diaphragm
A circular aperture diaphragm is used to ensure smooth, even background defocusing.
MSC mechanism for fast, quiet autofocusing
The MSC (Movie & Still Compatible) mechanism incorporated in the lens is an advanced optical solution developed for fast, quiet autofocusing using fewer and lighter lens elements. The focusing lens elements are driven directly by a metallic shaft and feed screw, which are engineered to submicrometric accuracies. The gear that would normally cause operating noise has been eliminated. The inner focusing mechanism used with this lens employs the MSC mechanism to enable exceptionally fast, quiet autofocusing with a compact, lightweight focusing unit combined with two lens elements. The surprisingly smooth autofocusing that lets users enjoy stress-free still image and movie shooting.
