A versatile wide-angle zoom for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras, the M.ZUIKO Digital ED 7-14mm f/2.8 PRO Lens from Olympus is a 14-28mm equivalent lens featuring a constant f/2.8 maximum aperture for consistent performance throughout the zoom range. Various aspherical, extra-low dispersion, and high-refractive index elements are incorporated within the design, and help to minimize chromatic aberrations and distortions for increased clarity and sharpness. Additionally, a ZERO coating has been applied to elements to control flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity. A weather-resistant design benefits handling in trying conditions while an L-Fn button offers lens-based control over various settings. As a fast, high-performance wide-angle zoom, this Micro Four Thirds lens pairs an optimized optical layout with refined physical details to excel in a variety of working conditions.
Complementing the imaging traits is a high-speed imager AF system that provides fast, smooth, and quiet focusing and the Movie and Still Image Compatible (MSC) designation also indicates this lens' suitability for use with fast-moving subjects and video applications. A manual focus mechanism can also be utilized for selective control over focus, which is accented by a rounded seven-blade diaphragm for more aesthetic out-of-focus regions.
- This wide-angle 7-14mm zoom lens offers a 14-28mm equivalent focal length range for Micro Four Thirds digital cameras.
- Constant f/2.8 maximum aperture maintains consistent performance throughout the zoom range and benefits working in difficult lighting situations.
- The lens construction integrates two aspherical ED (extra-low dispersion) elements, one DSA (Dual Super Aspherical) element, one aspherical element, three Super ED elements, one ED element, and two HR (high-refractive index) elements into its design to minimize aberrations, distortion, and color fringing while also contributing to overall image sharpness, clarity, and color fidelity.
- ZERO coating helps to suppress lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast and more accurate color rendering.
- Dust, splash, and freezeproof construction ensures this lens' performance in inclement conditions and harsh environments.
- A customizable L-Fn button can be assigned to control one of 27 different settings for intuitive handling and quick re-calling of assistive features.
- High-speed imager AF linear motor drive system, with MSC (Movie and Still Image Compatible) support, provides fast, smooth, and quiet focusing performance. A manual focus mechanism can also be employed for refined, critical focus control.
- Built-in petal-type lens hood helps to alleviate stray light from causing flare and also adds some protection from accidental impacts to the front element.
