From legendary optical technologies to state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies to skilled craftspeople, Zuiko Quality is the product of various trusted contributors.
THE LEGACY CONTINUES
For generations, Olympus has aided the advancement of the sciences and healthcare with precision microscopes and endoscopes, and today that same commitment to precision optics can be experienced through every M.Zuiko lens.
In order to achieve the precision levels required for producing lenses of Zuiko caliber, Olympus developed many of its own super-accurate lens element manufacturing and measuring technologies.
Lens elements are carefully assembled into a lens by skilled craftspeople. As not even the slightest misalignment can be overlooked, high-precision analytical equipment and computer programs are used along the way to verify proper positiioning of the lens elements.
TRIED, TESTED, TRUE
Each M.Zuiko lens undergoes rigorous inspection using state-of-the-art testing equipment. This includes an MTF (Modulation Transfer Function) test to ensure sharpness and clarity are maintained through to the corners of each lens element.
All M.Zuiko lenses are equipped with the MSC (Movie and Still Compatible) mechanism -- an advanced inner focusing mechanism providing fast, smooth, quiet, and accurate auto-focusing. You won't miss a shot.
ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) Coating is Olympus' cutting-edge thin-coating technology cultivated from multilayer film disposition technology used in microscopes. Drastically reducing reflections, ghosts, and flares, it greatly contributes to a clear, high-contrast image.
