Designed to meet the needs of the professional photographer, Zuiko Digital lenses were born of an uncompromising commitment to performance. Olympus' legacy in industry-leading scientific, industrial, medical and consumer optics continues with the Zuiko promise of impeccable image quality and the pursuit of lens perfection.
This extremely portable 3X Electronic Zoom pancake-style lens complements the compact design of any PEN or OM-D body. Less than 1 inch thick and packed with sophisticated lens technology, this lens features an MSC focusing mechanism for near silent operation. The Electronic Retraction feature automatically extends and retracts the lens when the camera is powered on or off. And the two-step variable Electronic Zoom delivers smooth consistent zooming control that’s especially desirable when shooting HD movies. An auto-opening protective lens cap is optionally available.
Smaller and lighter than standard SLR lenses thanks to the Micro Four Thirds format, the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 14-42mm 1:3.5-5.6 II (35mm equivalent focal length: 28-84mm) lens provides full 3x zoom performance in a very small package. The evolution of this PEN kit lens now focuses faster than ever before, so you won't miss out on rapid shooting situations. Designed for shooting movies as well as stills, this updated lens now features MSC technology for practically silent auto focusing and great movie sound even when zooming. This lightweight and compact lens delivers high image quality and has an excellent close-up shooting capability.
