Customer Reviews of the M.Zuiko ED 12-40mm f2.8 PRO

Zoom for the Pro

I fail to see why Angenieux in 1968 could make a 12-120 at F2.2 why you can't make a faster zoom that's f2.8 especially with all the new glass and aspheric elements and fast computers. If this new lens is motorized with controls for zoom speed, start and stop, wireless of course, will the pic move around or are the elements in their machined mounting precision enough where the pic will not move around when zoomed? I will not buy another Olympus camera until they shoot 4K video. Hope you got the message. James Guilebeau

Superlative Lens

This lens is a revelation. Super high build quality combined with excellent image quality make it one of the best lenses I've used. I love it's close focusing ability combined with the E-M1's image stabilization make it very useful for close up work. The lens hood attaches firmly. The center pinch lens cap works very well. Despite it's relatively high price, I would say this lens is a very good value.

My first introduction to Olympus lenses

I bought this as a first lens to go with my new OMD EM-1 camera. The lens is solid and definitely a quality product. It seems to be a good choice as a general purpose lens for the EM1, although I am already eyeing a couple of the fixed focal length Olympus lenses in order to have a lighter and more compact package. Since this was my first micro 4:3 camera, I have nothing to compare it to, but so far I am delighted with its low-light capabilities, the extraordinarily fast focus, and the useful zoom range.
