Product Description

Olympus 75mm f1.8 M.ZUIKO PW EZ Black Micro Four Thirds Lens

  • Ultra-bright 1:1.8 aperture
  • Robust full-metal housing with a sophisticated, lightweight design.
  • ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating for reduced reflection
  • MSC compatible: High-speed and silent
  • Perfectly corrected chromatic and spherical aberration

The 75mm f1.8 is a high-grade, fast aperture portrait lens featuring metallic construction and a light weight of just 10.7 oz. With a 35mm equivalent focal length of 150mm, it is ideally suited for studio portraits, theatre stage, and indoor sports photography. A large, bright 50mm front lens element compliments a sophisticated optical design of 10 individual lens elements in 9 groups, including a total of 3 ED lenses and 2 HR lenses. Its large f1.8 maximum aperture captures clear, sharp images when the lights are low, while its MSC (Movie and Still Compatible) AF drive assures fast and nearly silent focusing.

Engineered For Exquisite Quality

With ten individual lens elements in nine groups, metallic construction and a light weight of just 10.7 oz, this lens is a really advanced piece of engineering. Among these elements, you’ll find three ED, or extra-low dispersion, lenses that correct for chromatic aberration, and two HR, or high refractivity, lenses, which correct for spherical aberration. All lens elements feature Olympus’s ZERO coating technology for virtual elimination of ghosts and flares.

Built For Beautiful Bokeh

Photographers who shoot a lot of portraits and still-lives are always seeking excellent bokeh. Thanks to its large f1.8 aperture and 9 blade circular aperture, the 75mm f1.8 is especially well suited to capture the combination of a tack-sharp subject and beautifully soft, defocused background that exemplifies bokeh.

The Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical coating is twice as effective as conventional coatings, giving you the confidence to shoot in bright light without fear of ghosting and flaring.

Quiet Autofocus

The inclusion of the Movie & Still Compatible (MSC) mechanism provides amazingly fast – and nearly silent – autofocus operation. You’ll really notice the benefit when you play back your HD video and the only thing you hear is the ambient background noise in the scene you were filming; what you won’t hear is the sound of the lens moving as it changes focus. With MSC and the super-bright f1.8 aperture, you can film a school play or indoor sporting event in low light and still get excellent results.

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.
