Professional photographers who prefer the portable spontaneity of a Micro Four Thirds (MFT) camera will soon enjoy the full range of handheld shooting options with the 300mm f4.0 IS PRO M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED
Firstly, it is the world’s most compact and lightweight telephoto lens. Second, it has the world’s most powerful 6-step image stabilisation system (in combination with the matching Olympus camera models). And third, it boasts the shortest focusing distance for telemacro photography in the category: just 1.4m from subject to camera. This makes it ideal for fast-moving professionals who need powerful, top-notch lenses that match the usability of their small-format, Micro Four Thirds cameras. The new lens unpacks its full potential when attached to Olympus models such as the OM-D E-M1 or E-M5 Mark II. For example, it achieves autofocus speeds of less than 300ms and its state-of-the-art IS syncs with the unique3 5-axis OM-D system. The silent shutter action complements quiet OM-D motors at sound-sensitive events while the dust-, freeze- and splashproof build makes this the go-to telephoto for nature and outdoor sports.
Super-light means spontaneity
Olympus can now offer professional photographers a MFT-compatible lens for every focal length, from 14mm to 600mm (35mm equiv.). The range combines M.ZUIKO’s first-class optical pedigree with the practicality demanded by photographers working on challenging projects that demand minimum clutter and maximum mobility, wherever in the world that might be. A brief comparison with SLR lenses reveals the appeal of the new PRO lens. At 1270g the M.ZUIKO tips the scales at about a quarter the weight of available SLR lenses with equivalent focal lengths. With only 227mm in length, the Olympus is also considerably more compact than any of the comparable lenses. As any pro who has ever tried to board a plane with one of those will confirm, in terms of handheld manoeuvrability and convenience, the SLR models can’t compete.
Stabilisation ensures image quality
Olympus has established itself as the world leader in in-camera image stabilisation for compact system cameras and has expanded this expertise to include in-lens technology. Owners of the 300mm f4.0 IS PRO M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED benefit from a world-first Sync IS mechanism that coordinates with the 5-axis system fitted to the OM-D E-M1 and E-M5 Mark II models. The result is enhanced compensation by 6 EV steps. This stabilises handheld stills and the EVF display, and reduces shake noticeably when recording video.
