The M.Zuiko Digital ED 100-400mm F5.0-6.3 IS has a field of view equivalent to a 200-800mm lens in 35mm format, up to 1,120mm with the M.Zuiko Digital 1.4x Teleconverter MC-14 and up to 1600mm with the 2x Teleconverter MC-20.
This performance makes it possible to zoom in close on subjects that are difficult to approach, delivering flattening effects for shooting which is unique to such a super telephoto lens.
The closest focusing distance across the entire zoom range is 1.3m and the maximum image magnification is 0.57x providing superb telemacro performance when photographing small subjects such as insects and flowers.
Focus Stacking 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 the background.
