Latest addiction to the range of micro 4/3 mount lenses is this new 75mm f/1.8 single-focal lens. With its 150mm field of view (in 35mm equivalent) and large f/1.8 aperture it is optimized for studio or outdoor low-light portraits, indoor sports or concert/stage photography. It should deliver beautiful out of focus backgrounds thanks to nine blade aperture. Optical design incorporates 10 lens elements in nine groups, including three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) elements to correct aberrations.
With a total length of 2.7 inches, Zuiko 75mm is rather small and maximizes portability of PEN and OM-D cameras. The lens will be available for sale during summer of 2012 at a suggested retail price of 899 USD.
