Additional information:


The Olympus OM Zuiko Shift 35mm f/2.8 is a wide-angle prime lens for 35 mm Olympus OM SLR cameras.

The lens is remarkable for its excellent optical performance. The lens is capable of shifting at 12 mm, which is a very good result.

The lens had had a single-layer coating till the mid 1980's . The multicoated lens provides better micro contrast and is much better resistant to counterlight. Multicoated and single-layer coated lenses have the same inscription on the barrel. They can be differentiated by the color reflected from glass elements. MC reflections have green tints.

The lens was also manufactured by Olympus for Sinar cameras.
