Product Features in Detail
Professional high-magnification zoom
The M.Zuiko ED 12-100mm F4.0 IS PRO is a compact zoom lens designed to provide excellent image quality and high-magnification, meeting the demands of professional photographers.
Excellent image quality required by professional photographers is delivered throughout the entire zoom range, from the 24mm wide angle end to the 200mm telephoto end. The performance of two competitor lenses is packed into this one lens, providing outstanding mobility for the photographer. Wide-angle shots, telephoto shots, macro shots, nightscapes, and movies can all be taken with this one lens.
Optical design that realizes optimal performance and mobility
This lens lavishly uses special lens elements for excellent image quality and high magnification in a compact size.
DSA (Dual Super Aspherical) lens
ED (Extra-low Dispersion) lens
Super HR (High Refractive Index lens) lens
HR (High Refractive Index) lens
Image stabilising lens
Focus driving lens
Excellent image quality
Four aspherical lenses including a DSA lens are effectively placed to suppress aberrations that may occur when zooming. Five ED lenses suppress colour bleeding that tends to occur at the telephoto end, and secure image quality to the very edges of images throughout the entire zoom range.
Compact, lightweight package
DSA lenses and Super HR lenses are used to keep the number of lenses in the configuration to a minimum. Also, DSA lenses are made of glass with a higher refractive index than previous products, making the lens more compact.
Constant f/4.0 at any focal length
A maximum aperture of f/4.0 is delivered throughout the entire zoom range from wide-angle to telephoto, overturning the conventional wisdom that the telephoto side of a zoom lens is always darker.
The MSC mechanism: what makes high-speed, high-precision FAST AF possible
The MSC (Movie and Still Compatible) mechanism is an advanced inner focusing mechanism providing fast, smooth, quiet, and accurate auto-focusing. It is made possible by OM System high-precision lens fabrication technology which makes the focusing lenses lighter. This not only contributes to the speed and precision of focusing, but also to keeping the lens compact. With Face Detection AF and Eye Detection AF available on OM System interchangeable cameras, auto-focusing is taken to another level.
Z Coating Nano helps produce clear images
The new Z Coating Nano technology is used on this lens to thoroughly suppress ghosts and flares, providing the photographer with sharp, clear images. By coating the lens surface with a layer of nanoscale-size particles filled with air, a coating layer with a similar refractive index as air is achieved, for reduced surface reflection.
Vapor deposit film
Compatible with 5-axis Sync IS
The M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-100mm F4.0 IS PRO includes an in-lens image stabilisation system, which, when combined with the OM System camera in-body 5-axis image stabilisation, makes 5-axis Sync IS possible.
World's most powerful stabilisation performance equivalent to 6.5 shutter speed stops
5-axis sync IS achieves 6.5 shutter speed stops of stabilisation performance. On its own, the lens achieves 5 shutter speed stopsof stabilisation performance.
Record videos with minimal shake
Using 5-axis Sync IS makes it possible to suppress shaking that tends to occur when recording videos.
1.5-cm working distance for fantastic close-ups
Despite being a high-magnification zoom lens, it possesses incredible close-up shooting capabilities with a working distance of 1.5 cm.
Reliable dustproof and splashproof construction
Hermetic sealing in 12 locations protects against ingress of dust and water droplets, making it possible to shoot in any situation without worry.
Renowned quality and operability of the PRO lens series
The OM System PRO lens series features both superb design and controls.
