OM Digital Solutions Press Release
Introducing the compact, lightweight, high-resolution M.Zuiko Digital ED 20mm F1.4 PRO single-focal-length lens offering beautiful bokeh
Hamburg, November 4, 2021 – OM Digital Solutions GmbH is pleased to announce the M.Zuiko Digital ED 20mm F1.4 PRO (35mm equivalent: 40mm) lens. This Micro Four Thirds System standard compliant lens delivers both beautiful feathered bokeh and the outstanding resolution and performance the M.Zuiko PRO series is known for and is scheduled to go on sale at the end of November 2021. Compact, lightweight and high-performance, this single-focal-length lens utilizes the natural perspective of the 40mm equivalent* angle of view for a versatile shooting experience, from the landscape genre to portraits and documentary. This lens is the first product to feature the recently announced “OM SYSTEM” brand logo.
Compact, lightweight PRO lens featuring beautiful feathered bokeh
Outstanding resolution unique to M.Zuiko PRO lenses: Featuring a 11-element, 10-group lens configuration consisting of Super ED, ED, Super HR and aspherical lenses arranged effectively for sharp imaging from the center to the farthest corners of the frame. This high-resolution lens makes the most out of camera performance, including the stunning image quality acquired when shooting using High Res Shot mode. ZERO coating is used along with optimal suppression of internal reflections within the lens barrel to reduce ghosts and flaring.
Feathered bokeh: Using the knowhow gained in the development of the M.Zuiko PRO F1.2 series, which delivers ultimate defocusing effects, we have implemented feathered bokeh that slowly introduces blur moving from the in-focus area to the out-of-focus region. Developed using specific instruments to measure bokeh at a granular level and delivering optimal control over spherical aberration allows the lens to deliver superior resolution and beautiful bokeh effects.
Compact, lightweight design with a maximum aperture of F1.4: The lens remains compact and lightweight at 247 grams with a bright maximum aperture of F1.4. When paired with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III, the system is compact and lightweight at approximately 661 grams**, for mobility that enables nimble shooting.
Comfortable and stress-free shooting in a variety of circumstances
Highly reliable dustproof, splashproof and freezeproof construction (-10°C): Sealed throughout, this lens offers IPX1 equivalent splashproof performance. It also features a dustproof and freezeproof construction to -10°C, and pairing it with a dustproof, splashproof, and freezeproof camera body makes it possible to continue shooting in punishing environments, such as rain and snow, with peace of mind. Fluorine coating on the front-most lens allows for water droplets to roll off and for dirt to be cleaned off easily.
Sealing construction image High reliability
High-speed, high-precision AF: Superb optical design and lens processing technologies are used to make a lighter focusing lens, which enables faster, more accurate AF, allowing users to enjoy stress-free, high-speed, high-precision AF shooting.
A variety of expression for any type of scene
Close-up shooting to make the most of feathered bokeh: This lens is designed for amazing close-up shooting performance with a closest focusing distance of 25 cm and a maximum image magnification of 0.22x* for shooting up close to the subject. The beautiful, feathered bokeh slowly introduces blur for creative macro shooting.
An angle of view that balances natural perspective with bokeh effects: The 40mm equivalent angle of view is slightly wider than that of standard lenses, providing a natural sense of perspective and bokeh effects. This unique angle of view is perfect for a wide variety of scenes, such as landscapes, portraits, and snapshots.
