Olympus 50-200mm f/2.8-3.5 SWD Zuiko Digital ED Zoom Lens (Boxed) w/caps, lens hood and case
A superb, large-aperture telephoto zoom lens ideal for
portrait, sports scene and wildlife and nature shooting.
The ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 50-200mm f/2.8-3.5 SWD is a high-performance super-telescopic zoom lens that features for the first time the SWD (Supersonic Wave Drive) autofocusing system and covers a zoom range equivalent to 100 to 400mm of a 35mm camera lens.
ED lens elements are used extensively to correct the color blurring that can occur when telescopic lenses are extended to their maximum focal length, while the digital-dedicated design ensures high-definition performance with clear, crisp images from edge to edge. Close-up shooting capability is also superb, with a minimum shooting distance of just 1.2 meters throughout the zoom range.
4x super-telescopic range covering a zoom range equivalent to 100 to 400mm
Three ED lens elements are used to correct the color blurring noticeable with telescopic lenses at maximum. An improved lens coating reduces glare when shooting against the light and minimizes ghosts and flare.
Mechanically Interlocked Manual Focusing Mechanism
Mechanical interlocking of the manual focusing mechanism allows smooth, natural manual focusing with an extremely high level of precision. Seamless switching from AF to MF is possible at any time thanks to the Full-Time Manual Focusing function.
Close-Up shooting from as close as 1.2m throughout the zoom range
The focusing system uses floating and inner focusing mechanisms to provide a minimum shooting distance of 1.2 m throughout the zoom range. With a maximum shooting magnification of 0.21x (equivalent to 0.42x on a 35mm camera lens), this lens out-performs any other in its class (large-aperture zoom lenses capable of covering the super-telescopic domain).
Supersonic Wave Drive Technology (SWD) for ultra-fast autofocusing
Two compact, high-power supersonic wave drive devices drive autofocusing at an ultra-high speed by exciting unique elliptical oscillations, while an ultra-compact optical encoder detects and controls the lens drive position using direct rotation detection without a reduction gear, enabling extraordinary 1/1000mm-order precision.
Circular Aperture Mechanism
The circular aperture makes it possible to create a smooth, uniform, aesthetically pleasing blur.
Large Lens Hood (LH-70C) with a polarization filter adjustment window
The lens hood has a sliding window to facilitate rotation of the polarization filter if one is used.
Reliable Dust-Proof/Drip-Proof Mechanism
To support photography in the extreme conditions often faced by professionals, the external finish is sealed at multiple points for maximum protection from dust and spray. (less
