Product Features in Detail

Expanding ZUIKO DIGITAL lenses
To accompany the release of the E-3 professional D-SLR, Olympus is expanding its range of ZUIKO DIGITAL lenses, which are compatible with all Four Thirds System-based camera bodies. 

ZUIKO DIGITAL SWD (Supersonic Wave Drive)
Among the new lenses are the astounding ZUIKO DIGITAL SWD (Supersonic Wave Drive) models which boast the world’s fastest autofocus speeds* and represent a new benchmark for professional versatility and performance.

Standard Wide Zoom Lens
A professional grade high-performance standard wide zoom lens with a versatile zoom range. It features the Supersonic Wave Drive (SWD) mechanism for extremely fast focusing

High performance optics with weather sealing
Utilising super extra low dispersion and three extra low dispersion elements, the 12-60 exhibits outstanding professional output. This lens is fully splash-proof and dust-proof and is robustly constructed.  The Olympus' supersonic wave drive lens technology has made possible an ultra-fast, whisper-quiet and high-precision lens.

The most versatile high performance standard zoom
The Zuiko Digital 12-60mm Pro lens is a high-performance standard wide zoom lens that features the Supersonic Wave Drive (SWD) lens drive mechanism and covers a versatile zoom range that's the equivalent of a 24-120mm (35 mm) film format lens.  With minimal geometric distortion at its widest angle, the digital-dedicated design ensures high-definition performance with clear, crisp images from edge to edge even when used at fully open apertures. This lens also boasts impressive close-up shooting capability, allowing users to shoot from as close as 25 cm throughout the zoom range. The 12-60 is perfect for travel, all types of general photography, portraiture and landscape photography.

Fastest autofocus speed
In combination with the E-3, this lens delivers the fastest autofocus speed in the world. It covers a zoom range equivalent to 24mm to 120mm on a 35mm camera lens. This lens also boasts impressive close-up shooting capability, allowing users to shoot from as close as 25cm throughout the zoom range. Autofocus is powered by Olympus' breakthrough SWD. Designed to be the world's fastest AF system, this extraordinary autofocus drive provides both high speed and high precision while operating with extremely low noise.

Directly compatible with E-System cameras
Compatible with Micro Four Thirds digital cameras (PEN\OM-D) through use of the MMF-2 or MMF-3 (Four Thirds Lens Adapter to Micro Four Thirds Lens Adapter). The MMF-3 is dust and splash proof for use with that type of lens on a dust and splash proof body. Note, AF performance may diminish as compared to being on an E-System body.
