The G-Zuiko AUTO-W 28mm f/3.5 was among one of the original batch ZUIKO lenses introduced along with the Olympus OM-1/M1 camera. Its optical construction has literally remained unaltered all these years until it was discontinued and replaced with the Zuiko 28mm f/2.8 (see top of this page). Optically, it has a 7 elements arranged in 7 groups composition and weighs 180g which actually the lense is heavier than the f/2.8 counterpart. It close-focuses to 0.3m with a body length marginally shorter at 31mm than the faster f/2.8 lense. Hallmark with high resolving power with ample marginal illumination makes it suitable for color photography. Other than a weakness found in its slower maximum aperture, the moderate perspective and most importantly, a modest entry price appeals to many OM photographers to select it as their prime wideangle lense in particular when you call for a good wideangle lense to shoot casual PR and/or leisure photography that may not require a fast lense speed - for an instance, it is a good companion wideangle use in combination with a flash. As with many other Zuiko lenses, it accepts any 49mm threaded filters. In terms of the factors weighing price over performance, this is the best ZUIKO 28mm wideangle. Strangely, according to the chart compiled by Rick, this version has no "MC" designation mentioned in the lens data throughout its entire product cycle.
