OM System M.Zuiko Digital ED 20mm f/1.4 Pro

Bethlehem, PA—OM Digital Solutions Americas introduced the M.Zuiko Digital ED 20mm F1.4 Pro as the first OM System branded lens. The 40mm-equivalent, Micro Four Thirds system lens delivers feathered bokeh as well as high resolution.

Moreover, the compact, lightweight, single-focal-length lens utilizes the natural perspective of its 40mm-equivalent angle of view to offer a versatile shooting experience. The lens is an option from landscapes to portraits and snapshots.

What’s more, the new OM System lens features an 11-element, 10-group configuration. It consists of one super ED (extra-low dispersion); three ED; two super HR; as well as two aspherical lenses. Furthermore, they are arranged to provide sharp imaging from the center to the farthest corners of the frame. OM-M.Zuiko-Digital-ED-20mm-F1.4-PRO-optical-construction

The lens complements the camera’s performance, producing high image quality when using such functions as high res shot mode. In addition, ZERO coating is used to reduce lens flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting.

Plus, using the know-how gained in the development of the M.Zuiko Pro f/1.2 series, feathered bokeh transitions the in-focus to the out-of-focus area of the images. As a result, it creates smooth background bokeh that allows the subject in focus to stand out. To accomplish this, an aberration measurement instrument is used to calculate defocusing at the aberration level.

With a maximum aperture of f/1.4, the M.Zuiko Digital ED 20mm f/1.4 Pro remains compact and lightweight, weighing in at approximately 9 ounces. When paired with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III camera, the combo weighs a portable 1.5 pounds.

In addition, the lens boasts dustproof, splashproof and freezeproof construction (to 14°F): Sealed throughout, it provides IPX1-equivalent performance. Furthermore, fluorine coating on the front-most lens enables water droplets to roll off and users to easily clean off dirt.

Achieving fast, accurate autofocus, the lens also provides close-up shooting. It has a closest focusing distance of 9.9 inches as well as a maximum image magnification of 0.22x.

The OM Systm M.Zuiko Digital ED 20mm f/1.4 PRO lens will reach retail the end of December 2021. It will have a suggested retail price of $799.99.
