Lens Description: Zuiko Digital lenses are an integral part of an SLR system designed from the ground up for digital photography. An uncompromising system in which body and lens operate in concert to deliver the levels of resolution, contrast and control required by the worldâs top photo professionals. Digital Specific Lens(TM) Zuiko Digital lenses are designed to focus light straight into an imagerâs pixel wells, to fill every pixel consistently. Itâs optical technology that delivers an image filled from center to edge with rich, accurate color, high contrast and subtle gradation. Designed exclusively for digital photography, Zuiko Digital lenses provide a level of precision thatâs simply unattainable from a digital body using a traditional 35mm film lens. Smaller and Faster Designed to take full advantage of the Olympus E-1 Digital SLRâs FourThirds imager, Zuiko Digital lenses are smaller, lighter and up to a full stop faster than comparable film lenses. Itâs a compact, powerful system that combines superior imaging with unprecedented mobility. Smart System Zuiko Digital lenses communicate image information directly to the Olympus E-1 Digital SLR for a level of exposure accuracy thatâs beyond the capabilities of a passive lens.
