Olympus M.Zuiko 75mm f/1.8 Black Metal Body Portrait Lens
Olympus M.Zuiko 75mm f1.8 Black Metal Body Portrait Lens
Without any doubt, this is one of the highest performing digital lenses Olympus has ever produced. The Olympus M.Zuiko 75mm f1.8 Black Metal Body Portrait Lens offers a focal length equivalent to 150mm in a 35mm format. It is aptly suitable for use within the studio, as well as for sports, indoor and portrait photography. For the exceptional focal length it provides, it is surprisingly very compact.
The lens comes with ZERO coating, which ensures clear image quality in the most unfavourable shooting conditions. This coating thoroughly eliminates ghosts and flares, which can be technically difficult to counter because of their high transparency.
The lens has a rigid metal layout with a comfortable and easy-to-use metal focus ring. The M.Zuiko Lens is in-built with the MSC (Movie and Still Compatible), which offers fast, silent and accurate focus.
Top Three Reasons We Think You Will Love The Olympus M.Zuiko 75mm f1.8
- The hard metal exterior of the lens makes it comfortable to hold. This support is critical, especially while shooting fast-moving objects.
- Its large f/1.8 aperture and excellent optical design work together to deliver razor-sharp image quality.
- The ZERO coating and the MSC technology boost the overall performance of the lens, offering high-speed and high-quality imaging.
Sharp and True Imaging
The rational lens design of the Olympus M.Zuiko 75mm f1.8 Black Metal Body Portrait Lens delivers sharp, clear images even in the most complex shooting conditions. With a total length of just 69mm, its user-friendly design allows the lens to incorporate ten lens elements in nine groups, which constitute three Extra-low Dispersion elements and two Extra-high Refractive Index elements.
Further, these elements are coated with the special Zuiko Extra-low Reflectance Optical (ZERO) multicoating. This delivers aberration-free, crystal clear image quality while protecting the lens at the same time.
The easily accessible metal focusing ring turns through more than 360° in either direction. The geared mechanism ensures that the focusing speed matches the pace at which the ring is rotated, giving you the flexibility to turn the ring slowly or rapidly.
The lens features Olympus’s MSC (Movie and Still Compatible) autofocusing mechanism which moves internal elements to drive focusing, without rotation of the filter thread. The Olympus M.Zuiko 75mm f1.8 Black Metal Body Portrait Lens flaunts a nine-bladed iris diaphragm close to the circular aperture, which results in an appealing bokeh effect.
With the ability to focus up to 84cm within the range of the subject and the excellent bokeh effect at wider aperture settings, gives you the creative freedom to experiment with close-up shots, too. The lens does not come with a hood but features front and end caps. There is a provision to attach a lens hood if required.
