This compact Electric Zoom lens has a maximum magnification of 4.2X, covering a range that extends from a wide angle of 24mm (35mm camera equivalent) - ideal for taking wide shots even indoors - to a medium telephoto focal length of 100mm (35mm camera equivalent), - optimal for portraits. There are two technologies within this lens that make it particularly well suited to shooting video; the Auto Focus system utilizes Olympus’ MSC (Movie & Still Compatible) mechanism that employs a newly developed linear motor drive that enables faster, quieter focusing, and a newly developed motorized zoom mechanism that delivers quiet and smooth zooming. You can even remotely control the Electric Zoom function using Olympus’ free O.I.Share smart device app when mounted on a Wifi enabled Olympus camera body. And although the 12-50mm features electric zooming operation, it can also be switched to a traditional mechanical zoom mode by simply moving the Zoom Ring to the mechanical zoom mode position.
And more, when the Zoom Ring is moved to the forward-most position it activates the Macro mode allowing close focusing down to 8 inches with a maximum image magnification of .72X. A “Status” window built into the body of the lens shows at a glance which mode is engaged. A lens “FN” or function button can be customized just like the function button on a camera body allowing quick access to frequently changed settings. How about Durability? This lens features Olympus’ Dust and Splash-proof construction, so when it is matched with a Weatherproof OM-D body, rain, wind or snow won’t interfere with your photography. An optional dedicated bayonet attachment LH-55C Lens Hood handles harsh or stray light from causing aberration and doesn’t interfere when fitting a lens filter.
