Compact, lightweight, high-magnification ultra-wide-angle zoom lens
This single lens covers a wide range of shooting scenarios, from the ultra-wide-angle 16 mm* to a maximum 3.1x zoom magnification for capturing everyday standard shots.
This is the first lens in the M.Zuiko PRO series to feature a retracting mechanism to ensure a compact size on the go. Despite being an ultra-wide-angle, high-magnification zoom lens, this model weighs just 411 grams, making it highly portable. The Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 8-25mm F4.0 PRO lens is the solution for all those who want to travel with as little luggage as possible without having to sacrifice professional quality.
Excellent optical performance across the entire zoom range
Our dedication to optical performance resulted in adopting a 16-element, 10-group lens configuration that includes special lenses such as Super ED, ED, and EDA lenses. Various types of aberrations are thoroughly suppressed, including chromatic aberration, resulting in high-resolution, sharp images unique to M.Zuiko PRO lenses across the entire zoom range. Also, incorporating a large DSA lens significantly reduces sagittal comatic aberration.
This design delivers high point image reproduction from the centre to the edges of the image even at the widest aperture setting. Furthermore, the optimized ZERO Coating and lens shape help thoroughly suppress ghosts and flaring during backlit shooting, delivering sharp, high-definition depictions. Because the aperture value remains the same at any focal length, exposure control is easy while shooting with variable zoom settings and when recording video.
Close-up shooting performance with a maximum magnification of 0.42x
Enjoy intense macro shooting with a maximum shooting magnification of 0.42x for performance that rivals that of a half-macro lens. The closest focusing distance is 0.23 meters across the entire zoom range, making The Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 8-25mm F4.0 PRO lens possible to operate the zoom ring after getting close to the subject for easy angle of view adjustment. Also, this lens supports Focus Stacking, which merges images into a single photo in focus from the foreground to the background in the camera, enabling stunning macro photos that are sharp from front to back.
Reliable dustproof, splashproof, and freezeproof performance and superb controls
The M.Zuiko Digital ED 8-25mm F4.0 PRO features the superb splashproof and dustproof performance of IPX1 equivalent and freezeproof performance to -10°C for a high level of reliability unique to the M.Zuiko PRO series. When paired with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 and E-M5 series, this lens can be used with peace of mind in demanding environments such as rain and snow. Fluorine coating is used on the front lens for easy cleaning if it becomes dirty.
Despite featuring ultra-wide-angle 16 mm equivalent performance, filters can be attached to the end of the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 8-25mm F4.0 PRO lens. Attaching Polarizing (PL) or Neutral Density (ND) filters with a diameter of 72 mm allows for a versatile range of photographic expressions. The Manual Focus Clutch provides instant switching between auto and manual focusing and an L-Fn (lens function) button is available on the side of the lens so users can change settings with a single operation using their thumb while holding the camera.
