Compact, lightweight, and versatile
This compact Olympus zoom lens gives you flexible wide-angle to long-range telephoto shooting capability in a portable, lightweight package that tips the scales at just over 9 ounces. With an equivalent zoom range of 28-300mm, you'll be viewing the beach seascape at the wide end, and getting close-ups of frolicking dolphins or lazy pelicans at the telephoto end. And if you have an unplanned travel agenda, this is the perfect lens to keep when you only have room for one, because it's up to any challenge a freewheeling day on the road may present. A dust-, splash-, and freeze-proof design makes it a solid companion for the Olympus OM-D E-M1 which is similarly rated.
With its quiet, Movie & Stills Compatible (MSC) autofocus system, this lens also excels at enabling you to gather excellent sound while capturing video. Of course, the superb optical performance you've come to expect from Olympus is still here, as well. An extra-low dispersion glass lens element makes your images as sharp and artifact-free as they can be.
