Macro photography is an art form in itself. It reveals a world that often goes unnoticed and creates images with power and grace. The M.Zuiko 30mm Macro features a close focusing capability and strong magnification, making it ideal for shooting close-ups of a water drop hitting a puddle, a colorful leaf, or the details on a piece of old machinery. If you’re shooting a shiny object, a blacked out front minimizes reflection helping to reduce time-consuming post work.
The M.Zuiko 30mm Macro is made to precise standards to produce images that are clear, crisp and rich in detail. This superb macro lens features 7 lens elements in 6 groups including aspherical extra low dispersion and dual super ashperical elements to give you unmatched optical performance. The 2.5x maximum magnification (35mm equivalent) and close 14mm working distance get you closer to your subject than ever before. The lens is perfect for capturing images with artistic out-of-focus backgrounds. The circular aperture helps create beautiful bokeh for stunning defocused effects.
The M.Zuiko 30mm Macro features a single lightweight focusing element for lighting fast AF performance. This allows for 20 to 30% faster focusing than any other lens in its class.* With all that speed on your side, you’ll never worry about missing a shot again. Plus, the MSC (movie and still compatible) mechanism provides for silent autofocus and aperture operation.
It’s compact enough to fit in your pocket or purse. It weighs a scant 4.5 ounces and perfectly complements the slim, sleek profile of Olympus OM-D and PEN interchangeable lens cameras. The M.Zuiko 30mm Macro travels well and goes everywhere with ease. It’s also versatile. Besides taking superior macro shots, it’s an ideal portrait lens and even works well for everyday snapshots.
