WARNING: This is a 4/3 mount lens designed for 4/3 mount cameras. It does not work with Micro 4/3 mount cameras unless using an adapter!
The SWD (Supersonic Wave Drive) version of this telephoto zoom from Olympus achieves focusing speeds 2 to 3 times faster than the older version of the lens. ED lens elements prevent chromatic aberration and the lens provides sharp images throughout its zoom range. The close focusing distance of 1.2 meters allows pseudo-macro shooting at the long end.
Please Note: Due to a variety of problems we have encountered, we do not recommend using Olympus 4/3 lenses for video use with Panasonic Micro 4/3 cameras/camcorders. Rent at your own risk.
