Designed to meet the everyday needs of most photographers, the Olympus 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 Zuiko ED Zoom Lens for Olympus DSLRs (Four Thirds System) is designed to work perfectly with all Olympus E-System cameras. You'll find more than 20 digital lenses - the most in the industry - giving photographers unparalleled choice. Like all Zuiko lenses, the ED 14-42mm is seamlessly matched to Olympus' Four Thirds Image Sensor to provide images of uncompromising edge-to-edge sharpness.
Built to be digital specific - Unlike traditional film lenses, Zuiko Digital lenses deliver light directly to each of the imager's pixels. The results are photos with rich, accurate color, high contrast and subtle gradation. No blurriness at the edges.
A lens that promotes sharpness - Ordinary spherical film lens designs, which are clear and sharp at the center, may lack clarity around the edges - a problem that worsens in wide and ultra-wide angles and larger apertures. The ED 14-42mm Zuiko Digital lens features two aspherical and one ED lens elements to provide sharpness across the entire photograph. Even at its closest focusing range.
Meticulously crafted from ED glass - Like the high-end Zuiko Digital lenses, the 14-42mm is made with an ED glass elements to minimize the amount of light refraction that normally occurs with normal optical glass. With this "rainbow effect" reduced, light travels straighter, producing images that are amazingly sharp without smearing or chromatic aberrations like flaring. Photos shot with lenses ground with ED glass better reflect true color.
Engineered to be smart and tough - This lens is built to handle the demands of every photographer. It provides images that are sharp and colorful in a lens that is smaller and more portable than the competition. All Zuiko lenses contain a built-in CPU that actively communicates with the camera to correct any potential shading and distortion problems. And it is user upgradeable. Something impossible with film lenses.
