The first focal length to give distinct telephoto effects, this 85mm lens is extra fast, yet as small as many standard lenses. This lense produces images 1.5 times as large as those of a standard lense yet is almost the same size (telephoto ratio 1.06) as conventional standard lenses. It produces photographs with a natural perspective making it ideal for portrait, travel and still life and/or studio photography. A built-in automatic correction mechanism compensates for aberrations at close focusing distances. The fast f/2.0 lens speed and inherent shallow depth of field is extremely useful for creating pleasing out-of-focus foregrounds and backgrounds in portrait photography. it is a perfect lense for low light situations such as interiors and night scenes and the fast speed enables the photographer to focus quickly and easily.
The 85mm, in particular has long been given a lot of emphasis as an ideal focal length for portraiture. Thus stress was placed on enhancing this lens' full aperture and close focus capabilities. This lense maintains its high optical quality even at its closest focusing distance of 0.85 meter because it used to be the only telephoto lens within the Zuiko lens family that incorporated with a close-range optical correction mechanism to counter aberrations. The older version has a different optical construction of 6 elements in 4 groups while the revised version is employing a 5 elements in 4 group design; however, BOTH versions are incorporated with automatic correction mechanism against close distance aberrations. The new Zuiko lense, despite has a element lesser than the predecessor, maintains its weight equivalent to the older version. A general way for identification for both versions is, the newer version has omitted the "F-ZUIKO" and simply mentioned it as ZUIKO AUTO-T 85mm f/2.0.
Just to show you how compact this fast speed ZUIKO telephoto lense is, despite It comes with a f/2.0 maximum aperture, it still be able to use any OM-standard 49mm threaded filter accessories. Lastly, Olympus has only a sole lense offers at this focal length but it serves well with its good lense speed, highly portable dimension and weight, making it one of the most desirable telephoto lense in the ZUIKO lens family.
