  • FLEXIBLE FOCUSING SYSTEM

    One of the most interesting features of this lens is the flexibility of its focusing system. While this is a so-called “focus-by-wire” lens – which means movement of the lenses focusing elements are controlled by an electric autofocus motor instead of a mechanical linkage – it offers two distinct manual focusing options. Choosing is as easy as moving the snap focus ring that activates the lens’s Manual Focus Clutch mechanism.

  • MOVIE & STILL 
COMPATIBLE MECHANISM

    One of this lens’s most interesting features is the unique-to-Olympus Movie & Still Compatible mechanism, or MSC. This technology provides amazingly fast – and nearly silent – autofocus operation. You’ll really notice the benefit when you play back your HD video and the only thing you hear is the ambient background noise in the scene you were filming; what you won’t hear is the sound of the lens moving as it changes focus. This lens is perfect for tracking action.

  • THIS IS A LENS TO 
GROW WITH

    The 12mm wide-angle is a great choice for shooting portraits, low-light landscapes and interior architecture. It’s also a lens you can grow with; as your skills improve you can use the manual focus options to take control and set up your shots just the way you want them.

  • ACCESSORIZE WITH 
LENS HOOD

    You can accessorize with a special lens cap and lens hood, great for avoiding lens flares that can ruin an otherwise perfect picture.

Perfection
Excellent sharpness. Beautiful rendition of color even in low light. You can even shoot environmental portraits with it. It's stayed on my camera body for over a month now. Will be investing soon in another prime lens primarily just to have the option to shoot photos from closer up with a flatter profile than is possible with a wide angle lens. The build quality of this lens is nothing short of incredible.If you shoot landscapes or architecture save up for this lens or find it refurbished like I did. It's a dream to work with.

Sharp images, keep a backup lens handy
This lens possesses some superb glass, and I typically use it in Manual Focus mode. I have seldom seem such sharp images, even when enlarged to 60 inches (1.5m) wide. However, the lens seems fragile; I have had pieces just fall off of it in the field, and had to return it twice for maintenance in the first 6 months. It has been fine for over a year now.

Beautiful lens, lousy QC.
One of my favorite M43 lenses ever...BUT.... I bought this lens shortly after it came out, and immediately fell in love with how it renders images. I had it for three years, and then sold it when I changed systems. Two years later, I decided to get back into M43 and ordered another one. It was defective; soft throughout, and its output looked terrible. I exchanged it, and the second one had the old magic back....until I realized the entire left side was soft, even stopped down to f8. With great sadness I returned that one too. I still want to get a copy of this lens, but I really just want one that is as good as my original was, with even sharpness on both sides of the image, and that magical rendering that my first one had. However, after two tries and two defectives this time around, I'm not going to buy one again unless I can find a store that will let me compare them first in person.
