Olympus unveils new portrait lens
Owners of Olympus Micro Four Thirds camera can now get their hands on a new 'prime portrait' lens from the brand as of July.
The large aperture M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 75mm 1:1.8 (150mm) lens is suited to portraits, high-speed indoor sports and stage shooting in low light and features full-metal housing, picture-book bokeh and virtually silent, high-speed autofocus.
High speed, low reflection, next to no aberration
The new Olympus lens is 'perfect' for low-light and high-speed photography claims Olympus. Combined with the long focal length, it also helps generate the shallow depth of field needed to highlight subjects against an intentionally blurred background – an ideal effect for shooting portraits.
The ZUIKO Extra-low Reflection Optical (ZERO) coating is twice as effective as conventional coatings, giving you the confidence to shoot in bright light without fear of ghosting and flaring. This lens also delivers circular bokeh without vignetting or off-axis aberration. Several optional all-metal accessories are available to round off the lens package, including the LH-61F lens hood (£69.90) and the LC-61 lens cap (£39.90), both from Olympus.
The M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 75mm 1:18 Prime Portrait lens will be available from July 2012 for £799.
