The versatile M.Zuiko Digital ED 20mm f/1.4 from OM SYSTEM is a 40mm equivalent wide-angle prime lens for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. The wide field of view is complemented by a fast f/1.4 maximum aperture for controlling depth of field and producing selective focus effects, when working in difficult lighting conditions.

This pocket-sized lens is easy to carry and balances high resolution with the ability to capture soft, feathered bokeh. This lens makes long days of shooting landscapes, nature, or travel photos seem effortless. Reliable IPX1-rated weather sealing makes it possible to shoot in any environmental conditions without worry. Two aspherical elements are used in the optical design to help reduce spherical aberrations in order to achieve a high degree of sharpness, and also help reduce the overall size and weight of the lens. The Movie & Still Compatible (MSC) autofocus system provides precise, fast, and quiet focus performance to suit both video and photo applications.

This wide-angle prime is designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras and provides a 40mm equivalent focal length for 35mm format. It has a minimum focus distance of 9.8" for dynamic close-up imaging.

The fast f/1.4 maximum aperture can achieve shallow depth of field and selective focusing effects and when working in difficult lighting conditions. The rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasingly soft, feathered bokeh when shooting everything from nature to portraits.

Lens construction incorporates a sophisticated system of hermetic seals that lock out moisture, cold, and dust. The fully sealed splash, freeze, and dustproof design lends itself to use in a variety of locations and environments without the need for additional protective gear. It protects itself from harsh element and can continue to be used when the temperature dips down to down to -14°F / -10°C. When the lens is used with an Olympus splashproof body, IEC Standard publication 60529 IPX1 applies.

Two aspherical elements, three ED elements, one super ED element, and two Super HR elements are used to reduce spherical aberrations and distortions and optimize light transmission in order to provide increased sharpness and more accurate colour rendering.

ZERO (Zuiko Extra-Low Reflection Optical) coating provides reduced lens flare and optimal colour transmission.
Fluorine lens coating repels dust, dirt, rain, and snow from the front element for easy cleaning.
Movie & Still Compatible High Speed Imager (MSC) autofocus system benefits both photo and video applications due to its smooth, quiet, and fast performance.

Understanding: Aperture

Aperture is the opening in a camera lens that controls how much light enters the camera. It's measured in f-stops like f/2.8 or f/8. Lower f-stop numbers mean wider openings, letting in more light and creating a shallow depth of field (blurry background). Higher f-stop numbers mean smaller openings, letting in less light and creating a larger depth of field (more of the scene in focus). Aperture also affects the quality of out-of-focus areas in the image (bokeh).

Understanding: Lens Types

Different lenses have different purposes to achieve different styles of images, some popular ones include:
Prime Lens: Fixed focal length, sharp images, great for portraits and dark settings.
Zoom Lens: Variable focal length, versatile for different shots and everyday use..
Wide-Angle Lens: Captures wide scenes like landscapes.
Telephoto Lens: Magnifies distant subjects, ideal for sports & wildlife.
Macro Lens: Perfect for close-up photography of small subjects.
Fisheye Lens: Ultra-wide perspective, creates unique images.

Understanding: Lens Mounts

Different camera brands use different lens mounts, which are like connectors that attach lenses to camera bodies. Each mount is specific to a particular brand and camera series. For example, Canon uses the EF and RF mounts, Nikon uses the F mount, Sony uses the E mount for its mirrorless cameras. These mounts dictate which lenses are compatible with which cameras. Some brands offer adapters to use lenses from other systems, but it's essential to ensure compatibility for proper functionality and autofocus performance.

Understanding: Manual and Autofocus

Manual focus and autofocus are two ways to adjust the sharpness of a camera lens. With manual focus, you turn a ring on the lens to bring the subject into focus yourself, giving you full control over what appears sharp in the image. Autofocus, on the other hand, relies on the camera's built-in technology to automatically adjust the focus for you, usually by detecting contrast or phase differences in the scene. Autofocus can be convenient, especially for fast-moving subjects or when you need to capture a quick shot, whereas manual focus allows for precise adjustments and creative control over the final image.
