Excellent optical performance across the entire zoom range

Our dedication to optical performance resulted in adopting a 16-element, 10-group lens configuration that includes special lenses such as Super ED, ED, and EDA lenses. The optical design of this lens allows for thorough suppression of various aberrations including chromatic aberration across the entire zoom range, resulting in sharp high-resolution images unique to M.Zuiko PRO lenses. A large DSA lens was specifically included to significantly reduce sagittal comatic aberration.

This design delivers high-quality image reproduction from the center to the edges of the image even at the widest aperture setting. To suppress ghosting and flares during blacklit shooting, this lens also features optimised ZERO Coating to deliver sharp, high-definition depiction. The constant aperture of the lens at all focal lengths allows for easy control of exposure while shooting with variable zoom settings and for recording video.
