Olympus Zuiko Digital 25mm f2.8 ES-2528
The Olympus Zuiko Digital 25mm f2.8 ES-2528 is a lightweight single-focus standard ultra-slim snapshot lens with a focal length equivalent to 50 mm in 35mm camera format.
This lightweight ultra-slim snapshot lens has an overall length of only 23.5 millimetres and weight of 95 grams, allowing users to easily store and carry the lens anywhere. A unique double-sided aspherical lens element is employed to reduce the lens length and provide optimal aberration correction, achieving the sharp, clear image quality expected from a single-focus lens. A specially formulated lens coating optimized for shooting against light minimises ghosting and flare. With a large open aperture of f2.8 and a circular aperture diaphragm, this lens allows users to create portrait images with aesthetically pleasing defocused effects.

The Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 12-60mm f2.8-4.0 SWD is a standard zoom lens that introduces the SWD autofocusing system and covers a zoom range equivalent of 24 – 120mm on a 35mm camera lens. Special optical design ensures high definition performance with clear, crisp images from centre to edge. This lens also boasts impressive close-up shooting capability, allowing photographers to shoot from as close as 25cm throughout the zoom range.
Autofocusing is powered by Olympus’ breakthrough SWD. Developed as the world’s fastest AF system, this extraordinary autofocusing drive provides both high speed and high precision while operating with lower noise than ever. Optimised for use with the flagship E-3 camera, this lens enables the E-3 to demonstrate the full power of its high speed capability, providing the fastest autofocusing available using a standard zoom lens.
Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 50-200mm f2.8-3.5 SWD – EZ5020-2 SWD
The Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 50-200mm f2.8-3.5 SWD is a telephoto zoom lens that also introduces the SWD autofocusing system and covers a zoom range equivalent to 100 – 400mm of a 35mm camera lens. ED lens elements are used extensively to correct the colour blurring that can occur when telephoto lenses are extended to their maximum focal length, while the digital-dedicated design ensures high definition performance with clear, crisp images from centre to edge. Close-up shooting capability is superb, with a minimum shooting distance of just 1.2 metres throughout the zoom range.
Autofocusing is powered by Olympus’ breakthrough SWD, enabling this lens to achieve an AF speed approximately twice as fast as our previous ED 50-200mm f2.8-3.5 model. The ideal partner for the flagship E-3 camera, this lens maximises the E-3’s high speed autofocusing capability.
Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 14-35mm f2.0 SWD – EZ1435 SWD
The Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 14-35mm f2.0 SWD is the first standard zoom lens to feature a large f2.0 aperture. Together with the ED 7-14mm f4.0, ED 35-100mm f2.0 and ED 90-250mm f2.8 lenses, this lens completes our series of professional zoom lenses with fixed F-values.
The flagship of the Olympus Zuiko Digital series, this lens was developed to meet the requirements of the most demanding professionals. With features such as the best possible image quality, reliable dust and splashproofing, Olympus’ exclusive SWD-driven ultra-fast AF system, a mechanically interlocked manual focusing mechanism, and a large, flower-shaped hood with a polarisation filter control window, this lens offers the reliable, trouble-free performance photographers need to express themselves with confidence.
