Ultra-High-Refraction Glass and Dual Aspherical Lens Elements
In the optical system, Olympus has used glass with a refraction index in excess of 1.9 to provide excellent correction of spherical aberration. The combination of an ultra-high-refraction glass lens element with a low-dispersion glass lens element ensures excellent image quality with superior resolution and contrast by effectively eliminating chromatic aberration in the medium-angle range. The use of dual aspherical lens elements significantly reduces distortion, spherical aberration and coma aberration.
Multi-Coating to Reduce Ghosting and Flaring
Ghosting and flaring have been minimized through the use of a special multi-coating process.
Advanced "Floating" Mechanism
The focusing system features a newly developed "floating" mechanism that ensures excellent image quality at all ranges from infinity to extreme close-up. Close-up shooting at a distance of 38cm is possible across the entire focusing range.
Dependable Metal Mount
This product can be used with confidence thanks to its extremely robust and durable metal lens mount.
