M.ZUIKO Digital ED 150-400MM F4.5 TC1.25X IS PRO Super Telephoto Zoom Lens
The M.Zuiko Digital ED 150-400mm F4.5 TC1.25x IS PRO is a super-telephoto zoom lens in the M.Zuiko PRO series designed for excellent optical performance in a compact, lightweight form, along with dust-, splash-, and freezeproof (-10°C) performance and superb portability due to its compact construction. It will feature a built-in 1.25x teleConverter, which can instantly be extended to the maximum focal length of 1000mm (35mm equivalent). Also incorporating in-lens IS, the lens will support 5-axis Sync IS when operating in concert with the image stabilization of the camera body. The built-in teleConverter provides convenience, making it the optimal super-telephoto zoom lens for wildlife and sports photography. This product is scheduled to go on sale in 2020. Combined with the newly announced M.Zuiko Digital 2x TeleConverter MC-20, it will make handheld super-telephoto shooting possible at 2000mm (35mm equivalent).
A high-resolution zoom lens that enables 1000mm* equivalent super-telephoto shooting
The lens body features a built-in 1.25x teleconverter, maintaining high optical performance while enabling up to 1000mm equivalent* handheld super-telephoto shooting. The optional M.Zuiko Digital 1.4x Teleconverter MC-14 and the M.Zuiko Digital 2x Teleconverter MC-20 are also supported. When combined with the MC-20, this lens allows focal lengths up to an astonishing 2000mm*. The M.Zuiko Digital ED 150-400mm F4.5 TC1.25x IS PRO features the closest focusing distance of 1.3m across the entire zoom range and close-up shooting performance with a maximum image magnification of 0.57x*, which increases to 0.71x* when using the built-in teleconverter for enjoying true telemacro shooting. A lavish 28 elements in 18 groups lens construction was adopted, including a newly developed large-diameter Extra-low Dispersion Aspherical lens and four Super Extra-low Dispersion lenses. This guarantees reduced flare and colour bleeding across the entire zoom range and superb resolution to the edges of the image, even on a large-diameter lens with a fixed F4.5 aperture. Olympus original Z Coating Nanotechnology is employed to provide sharp, clear images also in difficult shooting environments, such as backlit scenes.
Compact, lightweight design with superb weather-resistant performance
Magnesium alloy is used for the lens barrel and a lightweight carbon fibre lens hood is used to ensure that the centre of gravity of the lens does not shift toward the end when the lens hood is used. The use of optimal materials in each area of the lens helps maintain strength and precision while achieving a compact, lightweight design with a length of 314.3 mm and a weight of 1,875 g****. The M.Zuiko Digital ED 150-400mm F4.5 TC1.25x IS PRO is designed to give photographers the ability to smoothly tune settings and functions as they shoot. Pairing it with the Olympus OM-D E-M1X and its superb dustproof, splashproof, and freezeproof properties makes it possible to continue shooting in harsh weather conditions such as rain and snow with complete peace of mind. Compared with the black coating on conventional lenses, the heat-resistant coating on this model efficiently reflects the infrared rays of sunlight, keeping temperatures inside the lens from rising even in blazing hot weather for stable optical performance. The front element of the lens features a fluorine coating which provides a smooth and scratch-resistant surface and makes it easier to clean for better maintenance.
World’s strongest 5-axis sync IS up to 8 EV steps** of compensation and fast, high-precision AF
The M.Zuiko Digital ED 150-400mm F4.5 TC1.25x IS PRO supports 5-axis sync IS. At 300mm equivalent*, it achieves the world’s strongest image stabilization of 8 EV steps**. Even when extending the telephoto range up to 2000mm equivalent* by using the optional MC-20 teleconverter, image stabilization is still available. Its high image quality hand-held shooting capabilities make the lens a perfect addition specifically for wildlife, nature and outdoor sports photographers. Olympus’ original high-precision lens thinning technology enables the production of lightweight focusing lenses, enabling fast, high-precision focusing across the entire zoom range.
OM-D E-M1X firmware version 2.0 with Bird detection
Bird detection has been added to the Intelligent Subject Detection AF and can recognize a variety of birds of all sizes. When shooting, the camera focuses primarily on the bird’s eye and switches to detecting and tracking the head or body if the bird’s eye is not detected. This feature functions sufficiently well even in birds’ natural habitats where trees, plants and other obstructions can get between photographer and subject. This enables the photographer to concentrate on framing. The feature can be used in conjunction with Pro Capture, which is also a popular feature for photographing birds. This shooting mode exploits the virtual elimination of shutter lag and reaction time by recording sequential frames before the shutter release is fully pressed, and ensure the camera never miss decisive moments, such as when a bird takes flight or captures its prey. Birds are detected across the entire AF coverage area when shooting with all M.Zuiko Digital lenses, including super-telephoto lenses. This works even at the periphery of the screen, offering a greater level of freedom for framing.
RAW video data output to the Atomos Ninja V HDR monitor recorder
4K 30P/25P/24P and Cinema 4K 24P video recorded on the OM-D E-M1X or the E-M1 Mark III can be output as 12-bit RAW data and recorded in ProRes RAW format on the Atomos Ninja V HDR monitor recorder. This enables advanced professional video production post-processing tasks such
as adjusting exposure and colour grading recorded footage.
Improved video image stabilization performance
The video image stabilization algorism has been revised for natural recording with minimal shaking even when panning.
Focus indicator display added
This feature makes it possible to quickly check the focusing direction and approximate focus position during manual focusing.
