Compact, lightweight "Designed for Digital" standard zoom lens providing the equivalent of a 28-90mm focal length on a 35mm film camera - the focal distances most commonly used in normal photography, from wide-angle to short-tele-angle.
It offers superb cost performance, and because it was designed specifically for use with digital cameras, it also provides excellent image quality. It is ideal not only for first-time SLR digital camera users, but also for advanced users in need of a lens for day-to-day use.
Ultra-High-Refraction Glass and Dual Aspherical Lens Elements
In the optical system, Olympus has used glass with a refraction index in excess of 1.9 to provide excellent correction of spherical aberration. The combination of an ultra-high-refraction glass lens element with a low-dispersion glass lens element ensures excellent image quality with superior resolution and contrast by effectively eliminating chromatic aberration in the medium-angle range. The use of dual aspherical lens elements significantly reduces distortion, spherical aberration and coma aberration.
Multi-Coating to Reduce Ghosting and Flaring
Ghosting and flaring have been minimized through the use of a special multi-coating process.
