Olympus Mju-III 120

Traduction de Manuel M

Series III was ultimate of the Mju family silver ones. The last models were launched in 2003, including this III zoom 120. It is provided with a zoom 38-120 autofocus, whose certain lenses are out of  ED glass of very high-quality.
Compared to II, it gains a dating back and a dioptric corrector on the viewfinder. There are still some modifications of detail as the shape of the flash and the “chrome” decoration which remains visible when the camera is closed.
To note a big improvement compared to II: the rapidity of setting is much faster and very near to that of initial Mju.

Like its predecessor, without being waterproof, it has a protection against water sprinklings what enables him to be used under the rain.
