Excelling in all of the following six areas, M.Zuiko PRO lenses are like no other.
Interchangeable lens cameras are part of a system. A compact camera body is meaningless if the lenses remain large and heavy. The Olympus camera system is both compact and lightweight, providing you with the freedom to venture out and shoot anywhere.
KNOW NO LIMITS
Designed to meet the needs of even the most adventurous pro-photographer, M.Zuiko PRO lenses are hermetically sealed in several locations for powerful protection against rain and dust.1
The M.Zuiko PRO lens barrel is made of sturdy and lightweight alluminum alloy. Not only does it protect the inner precision mechanisms from unexpected impact, it is strong against temperature fluctuations, and can be relied on in severe shooting environments.
TRUSTED ZUIKO QUALITY
Zuiko Quality is a term we use to denote the stringent quality standards in lens polishing, lens element fabrication, assembly, measurement, and performance that have been passed on for decades. Only lenses which live up to these standards are released to the world bearing the brand name, M.Zuiko. M.Zuiko PRO lenses take that quality to another level, satisfying the needs of even the most demanding professional photographer.
Olympus' world-leading DSA (Dual Super Aspherical) lens technology2 is what allows M.Zuiko PRO lenses to deliver outstanding image quality despite being so compact.
The ED-DSA lens, a DSA lens element made of ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass, possesses the characteristics of both an ED lens element and a DSA lens element, contributing to an even more compact lens package while providing even better performance.
The Olympus-original Dual VCM (Voice Coil Motor) focusing system2 is constructed with the focusing lens elements separated into two VCM groups that are simultaneously controlled to provide fast, accurate auto-focusing performance and excellent close-up shooting.
Z COATING NANO
Z Coating Nano is state-of-the-art antireflective coating which increases transmittance, drastically reduces ghosts and flares, and provides a clear and sharp image even in unfavourable backlit shooting conditions.
Olympus' extensive experience in advanced microscope development was applied to the creation of an ultra-high precision aberration measuring instrument, which plays a significant role in realizing the amazing image quality which M.Zuiko PRO lenses deliver. It can measure the precise characteristics of any lens and help design a lens with optimal aberration profiles.
Unlike conventional DSLR camera systems, the Olympus interchangeable lens camera system has its image stablisation (IS) system built into the camera body, providing beautifully stable images no matter what lens is used.
Sync IS, which delivers unprecedented camera shake compensation performance, is realised by combining the in-lens IS on compatible M.Zuiko PRO lenses with the in-body IS on compatible Olympus interchangeable lens cameras.3
