Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm f/2.8 Wide Angle Zoom Lens

The Olympus M. Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO Lens is a wide-angle to portrait-length zoom lens that is compatible with the Micro Four Thirds system. The 12-40mm focal length provides a 35mm-equivalent field of view of 24-80mm and a constant f/2.8 maximum aperture enables consistent low-light performance and shallow depth of field control throughout the zoom range. The lens construction integrates an array of aspherical, extra-low dispersion, high-refractive index, and HD lens elements to provide a comprehensive reduction in chromatic aberrations and distortion while also contributing to high overall image sharpness, clarity, and color fidelity.

Image AF Linear Motor Drive System

A high-speed imager AF linear motor drive system provides fast, smooth, and quiet focusing performance and the MSC (Movie and Still Image Compatible) designation indicates this lens' suitability for use with fast-moving subjects and video applications. Additionally, a manual focus clutch enables quick, seamless shifting between auto and manual focus control.

Lens Construction

The lens features a dust, freeze, and drip-proof construction that are tailored to its use in inclement conditions. The 12-40mm lens provides a 35mm-equivalent field of view of 24-80mm, covering wide-angle to portrait-length perspectives. Its constant f/2.8 maximum aperture enables consistent low-light performance and selective focus control throughout the zoom range. Also, the seven-blade circular diaphragm works to produce an aesthetic out-of-focus quality that is well-suited to shallow depth of field imagery.

Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm f/2.8 Wide Angle Zoom Lens

Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm f/2.8 Wide Angle Zoom Lens SKU: V314060BU000

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built, compact, and sharp but lens hood is flimsy I would love to give it 4 starts only because of the lens hood, but as a lens this is beyond phenomenal. For outdoor portraits it's sharp and offers more than enough background blur to separate subjects yet not remove them from the environment. It's bigger, but feels right at home on the E-M1 series bodies with perfect balance and sizing. My lens hood did break on my model, which is a shame but it performs so well I still give it 5 stars.
