M.Zuiko Lenses
Designed to meet the needs of the professional photographer, Olympus M.Zuiko digital lenses were born of an uncompromising commitment to performance. They also think about your experience of the lenses, and have created a portfolio of glass that is diverse and offers something wonderful for every occasion.
Did Someone Say Pancake?
A great example are some lenses from Olympus that we affectionately call “pancake lenses.” We call them this because they are so small (thin like a pancake, kind of). So small in fact, that they easily fit in your pocket! How cool is that! These lenses are not only small, they’re also incredibly lightweight and super portable.

We Use the Lenses We Talk to You About
They also make a PRO line of lenses that are mind blowing tools for getting the pictures you want. Looking Glass owner, Jen Waicukauski, recently took the new Olympus PRO 300mm lens to Bay Farm Island in Alameda for bird photography. She was thrilled with what the lens could do for her! The reach was great, especially with the teleconverter making it a 35mm equivalent focal length of a whopping 800mm. Check out a few of the photos this exquisite lens helped Jen create.
