The compact, lightweight and splashproof Olympus ED 100-400mm f/5.0-6.3 IS Lens covers a wide focal length of 200- 800mm (35mm equivalent).

Equipped with in-lens image stabilisation, which is beneficial in the telephoto range, this lens makes stable shooting possible with minimal negative effects of shake on any camera body. Powerful telemacro performance with a closest focusing distance of 1.3m and a maximum magnification of 0.57x.

The Olympus ED 100-400mm f/5.0-6.3 IS Lens is compatible with Olympus' teleconverters and when paired with the M.Zuiko Digital 2x Teleconverter MC-20, this lens is capable of delivering up to 400-1600mm equivalent super telephoto shooting in any environment. While paired with the M.Zuiko Digital 1.4x Teleconverter MC-14 it offers a 280- 1120mm equivalent super-telephoto view.

Despite being a 200-800mm equivalent super-telephoto zoom lens, the Olympus ED 100-400mm f/5.0-6.3 IS has a compact, lightweight design with a length of 205.7mm, a weight of 1120g and a filter diameter of 72mm.

Compact, Lightweight, Super Telephoto Zoom Lens Compatible with Olympus Teleconverters

The M.Zuiko Digital ED 100-400mm F5.0-6.3 IS is capable of 200-800mm equivalent telephoto shooting on its own, but can also be further extended when paired with the optional M.Zuiko Digital 1.4x Teleconverter MC-14 or the M.Zuiko Digital 2x Teleconverter MC-20, for up to 1600mm equivalent super-telephoto shooting, making it possible to zoom in close on subjects that are difficult to approach, such as birds, and delivering flattening effects for shooting that is unique to a super-telephoto lens.

Enabling Close Focus Photography

The closest focusing distance of the Olympus ED 100-400mm f/5.0-6.3 IS PRO Lens is 1.3m across the entire zoom range, and the maximum image magnification is 0.57x for 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 background.


Optical Design That Delivers Superb Performance Across the Entire Zoom Range and Reliable Dustproof and Splashproof Performance

The optical system features a combination of four ED lenses for suppressing colour bleeding, two Super HR lenses, and two HR lenses for bright, clear depictive performance to the edges of the image across the entire zoom range.

  • 21 Elements in 15 Groups;
  • 4x ED Lenses
  • 2x Super HR Lenses
  • 2x HR Lenses
  • Circular 9-blade aperture

ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) Coating

This coating has been used to reduce ghosts and flares for clear consistent image quality even in poor conditions such as backlit scenes.

High-level Dustproof and Splashproof Performance

Extensive hermetic sealing on the entire lens barrel delivers the same high level of dustproof and splashproof performance as the M.Zuiko PRO series for peace of mind when shooting in any environment.

Comfortable AF Even at Super Telephoto Range and In-Lens Image Stabilisation

A rear focus system is employed to drive the lightweight focusing lens for fast, high-precision AF performance. This lens is also equipped with a Focus Limit switch for AF operation selection, ranging between three levels according to the focusing distance, allowing for quick focusing and comfortable shooting, even in the super-telephoto range. Also, in-lens image stabilisation delivers stable handheld super-telephoto shooting.
