Product Description

OM System 12-100mm F4.0 IS PRO M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED Lens

Pro photographers can now travel light while enjoying a level of professional zoom performance like never before. The 8.3x zoom Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-100mm 1:4.0 IS PRO (35mm equivalent: 24-200mm) covers a focal length range that previously required the help of a second lens to achieve this level of quality. There is nothing quite like it for professional shooting versatility and overall breathtaking performance with the Sync IS system delivering up to 6.5 EV steps compensation in conjunction with a matching camera model. Dust-, splash- and freezeproof, this ideal travel companion belongs to the flagship M.ZUIKO Pro series. It returns exceptional 1:4.0 image quality results throughout the entire wide-angle to telephoto range. A minimum working distance of merely 15cm ensures extreme close-up performance.

Travel light with heavy performance

With the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-100mm 1:4.0 IS PRO, Olympus delivers the first professional 8.3x zoom lens with a constant 1:4.0 aperture. Until now, at least two lenses were required to provide a focal length spectrum spanning an expansive 12-100mm (35mm equivalent: 24-200mm) to obtain results in this quality league. Photographers now have the freedom to disencumber themselves from superfluous equipment while still enjoying professional quality results. This level of versatility is underscored by the inherent lightweight and compact Micro Four Thirds system characteristics and the dust-, splash- and freezeproof attributes that all Olympus M.ZUIKO Pro products share. As such, the lens represents the ideal accompaniment to the Olympus OM-D system for the highest quality, go-anywhere equipment – that is always at the ready and can always be with you.

Down to the finest detail

Breathtaking close-ups are at your fingertips with the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-100mm 1:4.0 IS PRO. A minimum working distance of just 1.5cm ensures the possibility to capture the finest detail at amazingly short-range and benefit from extreme wide-angle shooting capabilities.

Unprecedented image quality

The image results this latest lens can deliver will become an inspiration for fellow photographers. Besides the quality leap provided by the constant 1:4.0 aperture, built-in image stabilization of up to 6.5 EV steps compensation is provided by the 5-axis Sync IS system – returning the highest level of compensation that is currently available on the market. Flaring is also significantly reduced thanks to the lens’ Z Coating Nano. A very fast, high-precision AF system is also on board to capture still or moving subjects with the highest clarity and definition. Photographers will also value the customizable L-Fn button, which users can individually set to obtain fast access to a specific lens function, as well as the focus clutch feature that assists in allowing for smoother and faster manual focusing whenever the situation arises.

Understanding: Aperture

Aperture is the opening in a camera lens that controls how much light enters the camera. It's measured in f-stops like f/2.8 or f/8. Lower f-stop numbers mean wider openings, letting in more light and creating a shallow depth of field (blurry background). Higher f-stop numbers mean smaller openings, letting in less light and creating a larger depth of field (more of the scene in focus). Aperture also affects the quality of out-of-focus areas in the image (bokeh).

Understanding: Lens Types

Different lenses have different purposes to achieve different styles of images, some popular ones include:
Prime Lens: Fixed focal length, sharp images, great for portraits and dark settings.
Zoom Lens: Variable focal length, versatile for different shots and everyday use..
Wide-Angle Lens: Captures wide scenes like landscapes.
Telephoto Lens: Magnifies distant subjects, ideal for sports & wildlife.
Macro Lens: Perfect for close-up photography of small subjects.
Fisheye Lens: Ultra-wide perspective, creates unique images.

Understanding: Lens Mounts

Different camera brands use different lens mounts, which are like connectors that attach lenses to camera bodies. Each mount is specific to a particular brand and camera series. For example, Canon uses the EF and RF mounts, Nikon uses the F mount, Sony uses the E mount for its mirrorless cameras. These mounts dictate which lenses are compatible with which cameras. Some brands offer adapters to use lenses from other systems, but it's essential to ensure compatibility for proper functionality and autofocus performance.

Understanding: Manual and Autofocus

Manual focus and autofocus are two ways to adjust the sharpness of a camera lens. With manual focus, you turn a ring on the lens to bring the subject into focus yourself, giving you full control over what appears sharp in the image. Autofocus, on the other hand, relies on the camera's built-in technology to automatically adjust the focus for you, usually by detecting contrast or phase differences in the scene. Autofocus can be convenient, especially for fast-moving subjects or when you need to capture a quick shot, whereas manual focus allows for precise adjustments and creative control over the final image.
