Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 75mm f/1.8 Overview

Characterized by its telephoto design and bright maximum aperture, the black M.Zuiko Digital ED 75mm f/1.8 from Olympus is a 150mm equivalent prime for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. Coupled with the reach and visual compression of the focal length, the bright f/1.8 maximum aperture enables extensive control over depth of field to make this lens ideal for portraiture applications. Its optical design incorporates three extra-low dispersion elements and two high refractive index elements to reduce a variety of aberrations and color fringing for sharp, clear, and color accurate imagery. A ZERO coating has also been applied to individual elements to suppress surface reflections and flare for greater contrast and color fidelity in a variety of lighting conditions. Additionally, a Movie & Still Compatible (MSC) autofocus system is employed to deliver quick, quiet, and precise focusing performance to suit both video and photo applications.

Mid-length telephoto prime is designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras and provides a 150mm equivalent focal length.
Fast f/1.8 maximum aperture helps to achieve shallow depth of field and selective focusing effects, and also benefits working in difficult lighting conditions.
Three extra-low dispersion elements help control chromatic aberrations and color fringing in order to achieve a high degree of clarity and color accuracy. Two high refractive index elements are also featured, and help to suppress spherical aberrations and distortion for improved sharpness and resolution.
A ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating has been applied to individual elements to minimize lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.
Movie & Still Compatible (MSC) autofocus system benefits both photo and video applications due to its smooth, quiet, and fast performance.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

How does the "Movie and Still compatible " autofocus system build into the lens work with the camera's autofocus?
Asked by: Chester
The MSC (Movie & Still Compatible) mechanism has been specially developed to enable fast, quiet autofocusing; it provides smooth focusing while ensuring low noise. The MSC mechanism would be compatible for use with the autofocus system inside mirrorless digital cameras that use the Micro Four Thirds lens mount.

question

Will it work on a Panasonic GX7?
Asked by: Peter
From what I can tell the GX7 uses micro four thirds lenses. Both Panasonic and Olympus do very well at sticking to the micro four thirds standard, meaning you can use either brand lens or either brand body. So yes, if the GX7 is a micro four thirds body, the Olympus 75mm will work quite nicely. As a reference I have an Olympus body and I use both Olympus and Panasonic lenses. Also this 75mm f/1.8 is of excellent build quality. You won't be disappointed.
