QUALITY

    We know that serious shooters need the highest quality equipment, so we built the 12-40mm f2.8 PRO zoom accordingly. The premium metal lens body incorporates 14 lens elements in 9 groups, including Olympus ZERO-coated HD, ED, DSA and HR lenses. A seven blade circular aperture produces pleasing background defocusing effects. And its fixed f2.8 aperture is bright enough to capture sharp images across the entire zoom range.

FREEZEPROOF.

    Sometimes the harshest conditions produce the most dramatic photo opportunities. With separate seals to keep out moisture and dust, the 12-40mm f2.8 PRO is ready to take on the elements. You don’t have to baby this baby!

  • TAKE MAXIMUM CONTROL

    The 12-40mm f2.8 Pro makes it simple to shoot your way. Adjust settings on the fly with the programmable L-Fn function button – located right on the lens barrel for easy access. Or switch seamlessly between auto and manual focus with the Manual Focus Clutch mechanism.

  • UNMATCHED SHOOTING 
VERSATILITY

    The 12-40mm f2.8 PRO features a wide-angle focal length designed to faithfully reproduce landscapes, architecture and nature scenes. Shooting portraits? The seven blade circular aperture produces pleasing background defocusing effects, while the bright, fixed f2.8 aperture means you’ll be able to capture stunning images – even in low light.

  • PERFECT SIZE, PERFECT SHOT

    M.Zuiko PRO lenses are significantly smaller than many professional DSLR lenses of equivalent specifications. Using a much more compact system expands your shooting field and increases photographic possibilities

  • SHHH, AMAZING 
PHOTOGRAPHY IN PROGRESS

    The inclusion of the Movie & Still Compatible (MSC) mechanism makes Auto Focus operations nearly silent. In combination with the OM-D's silent electronic shutter, you can photograph skittish nature subjects as well as indoor events that require complete silence like musical performances. The size and weight of the OM-D system and these silent features open up a whole new world of shooting possibilities!

This is the one micro 4/3 lens you can't live without!
What a difference this lens makes. I know its a little expensive, but this lens really allows you to get the most of your camera! Great zoom width, great sharpness, and great performance all around. I wish I had got it sooner.

Great travel lens!
I usually like to shoot with primes, but this lens is perfect when you don't want to have to switch your lens too often. I use it almost exclusively when I am traveling, since I am usually outside for the whole day and want to reduce as much weight/things to carry as possible. The image quality is amazing and the continuous 2.8 aperture is extremely helpful in lower light situations. It's a bit heavy on my E-M10 but with the grip attached it feels pretty balanced.
