Olympus Zuiko 50mm f/2.0 E-ED Digital Macro Lens for the E Digital SLR System

Digital photography demands more than the traditional optical designs of film lenses. Photographers want to be able to shoot not only stopped down but with the aperture wide open and know they will get sharp, detailed edge-to-edge sharpness. The Olympus E-System and Zuiko Digital Lenses are designed to meet the everyday needs of professional photographers.

With digital specific lens designs and unrivaled optical elements, unsurpassed image quality is achievable in an interchangeable lens SLR system, no matter what aperture you choose. And an incredibly compact, lightweight design - based on the innovative Four Thirds System - provides you with the most versatile, high-performance interchangeable lens system you've ever experienced.

This compact and affordable medium telephoto Zuiko Digital Lens is ideal for not only macro photography but also as a portrait lens. The high performance digital specific design includes an ED glass element for impressive color accuracy and offers a magnification of 1:2 (half life size), which has an image magnification size equivalent to life size (1:1) in a 35mm film photo. A large 2.0 maximum aperture makes it excellent for lower-light photography as well.

The 50mm 2.0 Macro Zuiko Digital Lens features 11 elements in 10 groups, including an Extraordinary Dispersion glass element to minimize aberration and ensure sharp and accurate edge-to-edge detail.
