Micro Four Thirds Lenses

This table gives an overview of the autofocus lenses currently available in the Micro Four Thirds (MFT) system. Lenses which were replaced by a newer version are not included.

For any lens, its maximum aperture is a major characteristic. For a system which was designed to be compact, the same goes for the length, diameter and weight of a lens. To keep the table simple, the latter are  represented by the filter diameter. Green labels indicate particularly fast (brighter than f/2) or compact (filter size less than 51 mm) lenses, while red labels indicate particularly slow (darker than f/4 for most of the focal range) or big (filter size more than 63 mm) lenses.

However, this should not be interpreted in a way that a lens like the Summilux 15 mm f/1.7 with two green labels is a better lens than the Elmarit 200 mm f/2.8 with one red label. If the Elmarit had the same speed as the Summilux, the diameter of its front element would be at least 117 mm instead of 77 mm, so it is actually a rather compact lens. Color labels are therefore comparable for similar focal lengths only.
