    M.Zuiko Digital ED 17mm F1.2 PRO is a lens which is to ensure greater than average resolution and image plasticity within the whole frame range. Inside the lens we will find 15 optical elements placed in 11 groups. Among them there are aspherical lenses and new ED-DSA (Extra-Low Dispersion Dual Super Aspherical) lenses, thanks to which it was possible to limit their quantity.

     

    Specific elements have been covered with Z Coating Nano, which is to reduce undesired lighting effects while working against the light.

      Yesterday, Panasonic presented the G9 model – the camera which may become an interesting alternative for the Olympus system, particularly the OMD-EM1 Mark II model. In the table below you can find a comparison of specification of both models. However, it is worth remembering that the Olympus camera has been on the market for more than a year.

      The comparison of Panasonic G9 and the GH5 model can be found here.

      Today, Olympus presented a new M.Zuiko ED 45mm f/1.2 PRO lens, which will possibly make the dreams of many Micro Four Thirds System users come true.

      This newest telephoto lens ensures the equivalent of focal length of around 90mm (view angle of 27 degrees) and the maximum aperture of f/1.2. Thanks to these parameters, it’s going to be a great portrait lens.
       

      1). Olympus M.Zuiko ED 45mm f/1.2 PRO

      Similarly to other fixed lenses of the PRO series, the new model is a very complex construction. The optical system consists of 14 elements placed in 10 groups. The lens is to ensure brilliant resolution and guarantee the highest image quality across the frame, even at maximum aperture.

      Special anti-reflection coatings (Coating Nano) have been used in the lens in order to limit undesired lighting effects. Precisely designed and modern optical system is also to efficiently limit chromatic aberration and vignetting

      Quick and precise autofocus motor adjusts focus from 50cm, which, with the combination of 121-point cross-type AF system of the OM-D E-M1 Mark II camera, is to ensure amazing image focus, even at maximum aperture.

      M.Zuiko ED 45mm f/1.2 PRO weighs 410g and has the dimensions of 70x85mm. The tubus is, of course, sealed and frost-resistant (up to -10C).

      The lens is to appear on sale in December this year. The price has not been revealed yet.
