Thanks to the best-in-class maximum magnification of 2.5x (35mm equivalent) both novice and pro photographers can easily capture the details of a delicate flower or the ornate metalwork on a piece of jewelry — anything that’s small— and create distinctive, impactful images. It’s compact to fit in your pocket and lightweight so you can travel anywhere. Best of all, the M.Zuiko 30mm Macro gives you the versatility to shoot portraits or even everyday snapshots. It’s the one lens that belongs in everyone’s camera bag.
Macro photography is an art form in itself. It reveals a world that often goes unnoticed and creates images with power and grace. The M.Zuiko 30mm Macro features a close focusing capability and strong magnification, making it ideal for shooting close-ups of a water drop hitting a puddle, a colorful leaf, or the details on a piece of old machinery. If you’re shooting a shiny object, a blacked out front minimizes reflection helping to reduce time-consuming post work.
The M.Zuiko 30mm Macro is made to precise standards to produce images that are clear, crisp and rich in detail. This superb macro lens features 7 lens elements in 6 groups including aspherical extra low dispersion and dual super ashperical elements to give you unmatched optical performance. The 2.5x maximum magnification (35mm equivalent) and close 14mm working distance get you closer to your subject than ever before. The lens is perfect for capturing images with artistic out-of-focus backgrounds. The circular aperture helps create beautiful bokeh for stunning defocused effects.
The M.Zuiko 30mm Macro features a single lightweight focusing element for lighting fast AF performance. This allows for 20 to 30% faster focusing than any other lens in its class.* With all that speed on your side, you’ll never worry about missing a shot again. Plus, the MSC (movie and still compatible) mechanism provides for silent autofocus and aperture operation.
