  • Superb optical performance at all focal lengths
  • Sharp images to the very edges of the frame
  • Reduced ghosts and flares

Super telephoto zoom lens with a focal length of 1600mm in combination with the optional 2x teleconverter The M.Zuiko Digital ED 100-400mm F5.0-6.3 IS has a field of view equivalent to a 200-800mm lens in 35mm format, up to 1,120mm with the M.Zuiko Digital 1.4x Teleconverter MC-14 and up to 1600mm with the 2x Teleconverter MC-20.

This performance makes it possible to zoom in close on subjects that are difficult to approach, delivering flattening effects for shooting which is unique to such a super-telephoto lens.

The closest focusing distance across the entire zoom range is 1.3m and the maximum image magnification is 0.57x providing superb telemacro performance when photographing small subjects such as insects and flowers.

Focus Stacking is also supported. This feature captures multiple shots at different focal positions and automatically composites a single photo with a large depth of field that is in focus from the foreground to the background.

Exceptional imaging performance across the entire zoom range and reliable dustproof and splashproof body M.Zuiko Digital ED 100-400mm F5.0-6.3 IS:

The optical system features a combination of four Extra-low Dispersion (ED) lenses for suppressing colour bleeding, two Super High Refractive Index (Super HR) lenses, and two HR (High Refractive Index) lenses for bright, clear imaging performance up to the edges of the image across the entire zoom range.

The ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) Coating reduces ghosts and flares even in poor conditions such as backlit scenes. Also, extensive hermetic sealing on the entire lens barrel provides the same high level of dustproof, splashproof and freezeproof performance as the M.Zuiko PRO series for peace of mind when shooting in any environmental conditions. Focus limiter and in-lens image stabilization The rear focus system of the M.Zuiko Digital ED 100-400mm F5.0-6.3 IS drives the lightweight focusing lenses for fast, high-precision AF performance.

This lens is also equipped with a Focus Clutch and a Focus Limiter. It allows switching the AF operating range between three levels according to the focusing distance for quick focusing and comfortable shooting even in the super-telephoto range. Also, the in-lens image stabilization featuring up to 3 shutter speed steps of compensation enables handheld super-telephoto shooting.

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.
