Learn about the OLYMPUS M. Zuiko Digital 75MM F/1.8 - MICRO 4/3 - BLACK

Sometimes, you need a lens that will zoom—but indoors, the story’s a little different. Whether you’re taking studio shots, theatre pictures, or capturing indoor sports, you need a camera lens capable of producing quality and consistency with every portrait shot. That means a high-grade fast aperture, unique lens design, and the proper focal length to highlight your subjects while offering a soft background blur. In short, you’ll need the OLYMPUS M. Zuiko Digital 75mm F/1.8 - MICRO 4/3 – BLACK, compatible with the Micro Four Thirds System. This lens isn’t only fast, but it’s accurate, giving you the ability to pull it out for a stunning portrait at a moment’s notice.

  • The largest aperture here, f/1.8, means that you’re capturing all the light you need, even if the lighting indoors isn’t always favorable. As any backyard astronomer will tell you, aperture is one of the most important variables that determines whether or not you’ll be able to take a clear, beautiful photograph of your subject. But it’s important even if you’re taking photos of a subject two feet away as opposed to stars that are light years away.
  • A nine-blade aperture unit doesn’t hurt, either. It creates a natural, circular defocusing that gently blurs backgrounds, drawing your viewer’s eye exactly where you want it. This gives portrait and studio photographers exactly what they’re looking for: the ability to bring out their camera in both live and studio events to simply take a picture and let the lens do the heavy lifting. Of course, in order to achieve that kind of focusing, you’re going to need an autofocus that can deliver as well.
  • And how about that autofocus? With the Olympus 75mm, you’ll receive an autofocus drive that offers quick, almost silent focusing. And with close focusing coming down to 29.5 inches, you’ll have plenty to focus on, handling portraits in close range and longer. The lens elements including Olympus’ ZERO (Zuiko Extra-Low Reflection Optical) coating technology offer their help in giving each photograph the crisp, clear look it deserves.
  • Lens construction is a detail that can’t be overlooked for a portrait lens like the Olympus 75mm f/1.8, and luckily, Olympus isn’t skimping out here. In addition to the 9-blade aperture unit, you’ll find 10 individual lens elements in 9 groups, which includes a total of 3 ED lenses and 2 HR lenses. This will reduce the amount of aberration that comes through, giving your pictures a consistency over time that will reduce any editing or re-shooting that may be required. This is great whether you’re an amateur photographer or a seasoned professional.
  • Accessories include a plastic lens cap, a lens rear cap, the instruction manual, and Olympus’ 1-year warranty, giving you the freedom of durability. But you likely won’t have to worry about that, considering the solid construction here and the sturdy 10.7-ounce weight.

At Adorama, we feature a lot of lenses that are compatible with the Micro Four Thirds System, but rarely one as capable of producing beautiful portrait shots time and time again as the OLYMPUS M. Zuiko Digital 75mm F/1.8 - MICRO 4/3.
