    APO MACRO 150mm F2.8 EX DG HSM for Four Thirds Mount

    This large aperture telephoto macro lens enables you to shoot up to 1:1 life size close-up. This macro lens maximizes the potential of Four-Thirds mount system. This lens reduces the chromatic aberration of magnification, which is a critical problem for digital imaging. The best use of SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass corrects the various color aberrations. Super multi coating reduces flare and ghost. The HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) system provides full-time manual focus.
    * With Four-Thirds cameras, the angle of view will be equivalent to 300mm.
