Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-100mm f/4 IS PRO Lens (Black)

The Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-100mm f/4.0 IS PRO is the first pro grade high magnification zoom lens covering an extensive focal range. This compact lens delivers high-resolution sharpness with a constant f/4.0 aperture. Use it for wide-angle, telephoto, portraits, nature and macro shots.

Superior Versatility

This lens covers an extensive focal range of 24-200mm (35mm equivalent). It packs the performance of two professional lenses into one, and keeps the overall design compact and lightweight - approximately 21 ounces versus two equivalent lenses at 46 ounces. You'll find usable depth of field with the constant f/4.0 aperture, superior edge-to-edge resolution, and minimal distortion at all focal points.

Outstanding Optical Performance

The 12-100mm f/4.0 IS PRO features 17 lens elements in 11 groups consisting of 1 DSA, 3 asperhical, 5 ED, 2 Super HR and 1 HR lens element. Cutting-edge materials allow for a compact and lightweight professional lens that doesn't sacrifice image quality. The superior optical design means you'll achieve unmatched resolution, sharpness, and suppressed chromatic aberration throughout the entire zoom range.

Advanced Z Coating Nano Lens Coating

With a wide focal range, sometimes you need to shoot into the sun or into other backlit settings, and the 12-100mm f/4.0 IS PRO lens has you covered. Z Coating Nano is Olympus' most advanced lens coating. It uses nano particle technology to eliminate ghosting and flare from in-frame light sources for sharp and clear images no matter the shooting scenario.

Built-In Lens Image Stabilization for 5-Axis Sync IS

This lens' built-in image stabilization provides 5 shutter speed steps of compensation. Pair this lens with select Olympus OM-D or PEN camera bodies to get 5-Axis Sync IS, the world's most powerful image stabilization of up to 6.5 shutter speed steps compensation at 200mm (35mm equivalent). This compensates for all types of camera motion for tack sharp images and video.

Excellent Close Up Performance

If you love taking macro shots, you'll appreciate the 12-100mm f/4.0 IS PRO's ultra-close working distance of 1.5cm at the widest focal length and its powerful magnification of .60x (35mm equivalent). You'll capture sharp, detailed images of subjects up close, like flowers, insects, and jewelry, no additional lens required.

Professional Weatherproof Construction

The 12-100mm f/4.0 IS PRO isn't afraid of rain, dirt, or dust. The metal construction is hermetically sealed to make the lens splashproof, freezeproof, and dustproof. When paired with a weatherproof Olympus OM-D body, you can take advantage of every photo opportunity no matter the shooting conditions.

Professional Convenience and Control

The customizable Lens Function button lets you easily control your choice of camera functions right from the lens barrel. The convenient manual focus clutch lets you instantly switch between auto and manual focus. You can even preset a focus position using the distance meter and instantly return to that position from AF Mode by simply pulling the ring towards you.
