Olympus 50mm f2.0 Zuiko Digital Macro Lens

Features in Detail | Enlarged Image

Offering magnification 1:2, which is visually the equivalent to that of life size (1:1) in 35mm photography, this large aperture ED glass prime lens is the ideal macro solution. It also serves as a fast mid-range telephoto lens ideal for portraiture photography. This Zuiko Digital Macro lens features 11 elements in 10 groups, including an ED glass element that minimizes color smear, chromatic aberration and fringing, ensuring sharp and accurate edge-to-edge detail. The smaller, lighter 50mm Zuiko Digital Macro lens provides the power of a 100mm macro lens in 35mm photography.

ED Macro Lens
This is a special macro photography lens designed for use with the Macro flash system but also equally good in normal use. The Olympus Zuiko 50mm f2.0 Digital Macro provides a closest focusing distance of 9.45 inches (0.24 m) and a maximum image magnification of 1:2 (1:1 35mm equivalent).
f2.0 Brightness
The Zuiko Digital 50mm f2.0 Macro's 2.0 maximum aperture gives it great light-gathering power, allowing you to achieve superb photos even in poor lighting conditions. The ED glass element guides the light directly onto the image sensor, guaranteeing clear pictures with vivid colors and avoiding chromatic aberration.
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 50mm in the FourThirds Standard gives the same angle of view as a 100-400mm 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.
