With a premium metal construction and a variety of specialized lens elements the?M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 300mm f/4.0 PRO Lens?from?Olympus?will provide Micro Four Thirds users with a sharp, compact, lightweight, splash, dust, and freeze-proof telephoto lens. It has a 35mm equivalent focal length of 600mm reaching jaw-dropping lengths while keeping a constant f/4 aperture and maintaining the highest resolution in Olympus history. Additionally, it uses Olympus?s newest 5-axis sync image stabilization which combines the Body IS and lens IS for maximize image stabilization performance making this the world?s most powerful 6-steps of compensation synchronized in-lens and in-body I.S.
With fast AF speed of 300 ms or less with OM-D E-M1, the 300mm provides users with a high-speed, high-precision autofocus system that features two separate lens groups that are each controlled by their own linear drive motor. This results in incredibly fast performance that is nearly friction-free and very quiet.
Inside the dust-free and splash-proof lens body are a variety of specialized elements that feature the new Z Coating Nano technology, which is an added layer of nano-sized particles on the element with a layer of air in the center to the surface of the lens. This coating achieves a refractive index similar to that of air for reduced surface reflections.
There is also a floating mechanism that allows users to focus as close as 1.4m for a maximum magnification of 0.48x bringing a new world to telemacro photography with 5 axis sync IS hand-held and free angle shooting.
Additionally, the outside of the lens body features a manual focus clutch for rapidly switching from auto to manual focus as well as an L-Fn button that can be programmed to change a specific setting. Included with the lens are a lens hood and a case.
