Additional information:

The Olympus Zuiko Shift 24 mm f/ 3.5 is the world's first wide-angle shift lens for Olympus OM SLR cameras with a 24х36 mm frame size. For a long time it had remained the only wide angle shift lens in the world.

The optical scheme employs an ED glass element to enhance performance. The lens has garnered very positive owners' reviews. A very high price may be justified by its uniqueness and manufacturing complexity.

The lens has no filter thread. Filters (neutral, yellow, orange, and red) are built into the frame.

There is a risk of scratching a protruding element.

Additional information:

The lens is very obviously calculated for film cameras. On digital cameras and especially fullframe the lens suffers from heavy CA (variuous colour fringing), not being resistant against flares (he, you probably can't avoid the sky when photographing buildings), bad colours and especially being not sharp, not even in the centre, stopped down to 8.
The times and it's changes did no good to this lens. Avoid by any means.
