Overview

M.Zuiko ED 12-100mm f4.0 IS PRO at a Glance

The M. Zuiko Digital ED 12-100mm f4.0 IS PRO lens is in a class by itself. It’s the only professional high magnification zoom to cover a 35mm equivalent 24-200mm focal range all on its own. This Micro Four Thirds lens features premium construction and superior glass to provide spectacular optical performance. Capture images with razor sharpness thanks to 5-Axis Sync IS, the world’s most powerful image stabilization system. Every inch of this lens is PRO: weatherproof construction, fast auto focusing and effortless control. Its broad focal length lets you shoot portraits, wide-angle, landscapes, and macro. One lens. Unprecedented versatility.

    Let’s start with the obvious: the 12-100mm f4.0 IS PRO (24-200mm 35mm equivalent) is pretty small. At approximately 21 ounces, it’s lightweight to carry all day and compact to easily fit in a small bag. It captures amazing images with its constant f4.0 aperture, edge-to-edge sharpness, and minimal distortion at all focal lengths. By comparison, it typically takes two professional lenses to cover the broad focal range of the 12-100mm f4.0 IS PRO. This single lens makes for a lighter, more streamlined system. Smaller is better for travel, nature photography, and everyday convenience.

  • Superior Optics

    The 12-100mm f4.0 IS PRO lens boasts a lavish collection of 17 lens elements in 11 groups. This remarkable combination ensures superior resolution, sharpness, and suppressed aberration. Cutting-edge lens materials and manufacturing processes help to make these special elements smaller, so this professional lens boasts a compact form without sacrificing image quality. Use the 12-100mm f4.0 IS PRO in all shooting situations. Z Coating Nano, our most advanced lens coating, is nanoparticle-based and practically eliminates ghosting and flares caused by in-frame light. Plus, the near-silent MSC focusing mechanism compliments the precise, high-speed AF for crisp stills and smooth video.

  • Most Powerful IS

    The 12-100mm f4.0 IS PRO features effective in-lens image stabilization. On its own, this lens provides up to 5 shutter speed steps of compensation. Even better, pair the lens with a compatible OM-D or PEN camera body to get a tandem of image stabilization systems – one in the body and one in the lens. This creates 5-Axis Sync IS, the world’s most powerful image stabilization system. It provides up to 6.5 shutter speed steps of compensation at 200mm (35mm equivalent), compensating for all types of camera motion. Leave your tripod at home and shoot stunningly sharp handheld telephoto images and video.

    *5-Axis Sync IS, when using a compatible OM-D or PEN camera body. As of September 2016.

  • CLOSE ENCOUNTERS MADE EASY

The maximum magnification of .60x (35mm equivalent) lets you capture small details on small objects. Capture exquisitely textured shots of flowers, insects, jewelry or any other object where you need to get close, no additional lens required.

  • DESIGNED FOR CHALLENGING CONDITIONS

Like a swiss army knife!
I think this lens is a must for video and long exposure, the IS is amazing, especially if you use it with the OM-D EM1 Mark ii. It's very compact, considering this lens cover a range from 12mm to 100mm! If you can bring only one lens with you, it's this one.

One lens does it all!
This lens paired with the EM1 MK2 is unbelievable! The 12-100mm range is perfect if you only want to use/carry one lens, especially when traveling. I get great shots from macros to landscapes, and the lens IS make sports photography and video so easy without needing a tripod. The build quality is top notch and weather sealing make me feel a lot safer when taking shots in the snow and rain. This lens is a must to complete any Olympus camera!

A lens of the highest quality and an exceptionally versatile lens whose versatility does not require much, if any, real compromise.
As I already owned the PRO 7-14, 12-40, 40-150, 75, and 300, I thought long and hard about what a PRO 12-100 would add. Convenience was the answer: a single lens covering most of the range of the 12-40 and 40-150 combination but without the awkward weight of the 40-150, which usually got left at home. It made sense to trade these last two for a single quality substitute. An economic sacrifice, to be sure, but made tolerable by Olympus's recent trade-in discounts. Yes,the 12-100 is f4.0 versus f2.8 of the other two; but the in-lens stabilization more than makes up for that. Plus the 300 with the 1.4x extender gives all the reach anyone would want. The kit will be perfect with the PRO 25.
