Compact, Lightweight, Super Telephoto Zoom Lens Capable of Shooting up to 1600mm Equivalent When Paired withthe Optional 2x Teleconverter


The M.Zuiko Digital ED 100-400mm F5.0-6.3 IS is capable of 200-800mm equivalent1 telephoto shooting on its own, which can be further extended when paired with the optional M.Zuiko Digital 1.4x Teleconverter MC-14 or the M.Zuiko Digital 2x Teleconverter MC-20, for up to 1600mm equivalent1 super telephoto shooting, making it possible to zoom in close on subjects that are difficult to approach, such as birds, and delivering flattening effects for shooting that is unique to a super telephoto lens. The closest focusing distance across the entire zoom range is 1.3m,and the maximum image magnification is 0.57x1 for superb telemacro performance when photographing small subjects such as insects and flowers. Focus Stacking2 is also supported. This feature captures multiple shots at different focal positions and automatically composites a single photo with a large depth of field that is in focus from the foreground to background.



Comfortable AF Even at Super Telephoto Range and In-Lens Image Stabilisation


A rear focus system is employed to drive the lightweight focusing lens for fast, high-precision AF performance. This lens is also equipped with a Focus Limit switch for AF operation selection, ranging between three levels according to the focusing distance, allowing for quick focusing and comfortable shooting, even in the super telephoto range. Also, in-lens image stabilisation delivers stable handheld super telephoto shooting.


Optical Design That Delivers Superb Depictive Performance Across the Entire Zoom Range and Reliable Dustproof and Splashproof Performance


The optical system features a combination of four ED lenses3 for suppressing colourbleeding, two Super HR lenses4, and two HR lenses5 for bright, clear depictive performance to the edges of the image across the entire zoom range. ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) Coating is also used to reduce ghosts and flares for clear image quality even in poor conditions such as backlit scenes. Also, extensive hermetic sealing on the entire lens barrel delivers the same high level of dustproof and splashproof performance as the M.Zuiko PRO series for peace of mind when shooting in any environment.



Despite being a 200-800mm1 equivalent super telephoto zoom lens, it has a compact, lightweight design with a length of 205.7mm, a weight of 1120g6 and a filter diameter of 72mm.
