Quick Overview

  • Constant F2.8 aperture zoom lens with dustproof splashproof capabilities

Achieving high-resolution, high-performance, and compact size

This lens possesses optical performance that rivals the popular Four Thirds High Grade series. A rational lens design of 14 elements in 9 groups, including 2 ED lenses, 1 EDA lens, and 2 HR lenses, enables a compact form and excellent image capture.

Macro performance for getting up to 20cm away from the imaging surface at all focal distances and a maximum image magnification of 0.6x (35mm equivalent)

It is possible to achieve a closest focusing distance of 20cm from the sensor at all focal distances without switching to macro mode. At the telephoto setting, close-up shooting is possible up to 7cm from the end of the lens. Macro shooting is possible up to a maximum image magnification of 0.3x (35mm equivalent: 0.6x). Because you can approach main subjects up to 9cm from the end of the lens at the wide-angle setting, wide-angle macro shooting with an exaggerated sense of perspective is possible. This is a truly versatile lens.

Dustproof / Splashproof / Freezeproof

Dustproof, splashproof and freezeproof performance are achieved through hermetic sealing. This prevents incursion of water and dust through the waterproof, air permeable material.

The manual focus clutch mechanism makes instant switching to manual focus easy.

This lens is equipped with the manual focus clutch mechanism, which makes instant switching to manual focus easy by pulling the focusing ring towards you. By increasing resolving power with the snapshot focus mechanism, smooth and fine focusing equal to traditional manual focusing is possible. You can still focus in the traditional sense by utilising the stoppers at the extremely close end, and the infinity end of the focus ring.

This area is called depth of field. The amount of area behind a focused point will always be greater than the area in front of the focused point regardless of aperture. Depth of field becomes deeper when the focal length is short (wide-angle lens), the focusing distance is long, and aperture is small.
