Features in Detail | Enlarged Image

A perfect first lens, this compact standard zoom is suited for everyday, common shooting situations. It features 15 elements in 11 groups, including three aspherical glass elements to minimize aberration and ensure sharp and accurate edge-to-edge detail -- even at wide aperatures to produce award-winning results. This lens boasts High-Speed Imager AF support and a circular aperture mechanism for higher imaging performance. It also offers excellent close-up shooting capability. Small and light, the 14-54mm Zuiko Digital Zoom provides the power of a 28-108mm lens in 35mm photography.

3.9x Standard Zoom Lens
The smaller, lighter 14-54mm Zuiko Digital Zoom lens provides the power of a 28-108mm lens in 35mm photography. This bright all-round zoom lens offers both wide angle and short telephoto, making it the ideal basic lens.
f2.8-3.5 Brightness
The Zuiko 14-54mm employs a f2.8-3.5 brightness that allows you to achieve superb photos even in poor lighting conditions.
15 Elements In 11 Groups, Including Three Aspherical Glass Elements
The 14-54mm Zuiko Digital Zoom lens features 15 elements in 11 groups, including three aspherical glass elements to minimize aberration and ensure sharp and accurate edge-to-edge detail.
High-Speed Imager AF Support
Thanks to its support for High-Speed Imager AF, the Zuiko 14-54mm enables users to enjoy responsive AF Live View shooting, via the camera's LCD monitor.
Circular Aperture Mechanism
The circular aperture makes it possible to achieve smooth, uniform, soft background defocusing.
Digital Specific Lens™
Zuiko Digital lenses are designed to focus light straight into an imager's pixel wells, to fill every pixel consistently. It's optical technology that delivers an image filled from center to edge with rich, accurate color, high contrast and subtle gradation. Designed exclusively for digital photography, Zuiko Digital lenses provide a level of precision that's simply unattainable from a digital body using a traditional 35mm film lens.

The Olympus FourThirds Standard uses lenses which are just as powerful as the lenses previously developed for 35mm film camera systems despite being about half the size. Thus the focal length of the 14-54mm in the FourThirds Standard gives the same angle of view as an 28-108mm lens for a 35mm film camera. It is important to know that this is not a 2x "crop factor" -- Olympus E-System lenses are designed for this size format and have a much higher resolution than lenses designed generally for 35mm film cameras. The benefit: superb image quality but less weight to carry.

Zuiko lenses feature a near telecentric design that ensures that the light hits the photodiodes at right angles, thus avoiding the problem of blurring at the edges of the image, or corner shading, which often occurs when using lenses originally designed for 35mm film cameras. Combined with the high resolution of Olympus Zuiko Digital lenses, this lens design exploits the full potential of the digital camera image sensors. The result is clear photos with strong colors and sharp contrasts right to the edges of the image.

Smart System
Zuiko Digital lenses communicate image information directly to the Olympus E-System Digital SLR for a level of exposure accuracy that's beyond the capabilities of a passive lens.

Floating Focusing And Internal System
The 14-54mm Zuiko's floating focusing system results in a closest focusing distance of 8.66 inches for close-up macro shots. Ideal for professional use.
