    PRISTINE PRIMES

    M.Zuiko prime lenses feature fixed focal lengths ranging from the 12mm F1.8 lens that's optimized for landscapes to the 75mm F1.8, a perfect portrait lens.

    • FLEXIBLE FOCUSING SYSTEM

      One of the most interesting features of this lens is the flexibility of its focusing system.

    • MSC

      One of this lens’s most interesting features is the unique-to-Olympus Movie & Still Compatible mechanism, or MSC.

    • GROW WITH IT

      The 12mm wide-angle is a great choice for shooting portraits, low-light landscapes and interior architecture.

    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.

Terrific Lens

This is the only prime lens I own for my E-M5. It works amazingly in many situations. I've shot landscapes, home interiors and the night sky. I'm always happy with the results.

Greal compact landscape lens.

I used bought this for landscape shots in Alaska and it did not disappoint. Small and compact this was one my go too lenses the entire trip. Easy focus, great color and sharp pictures...could not ask for more. I am by far not a professional photographer but with I found with just a little bit of practice prior to my trip the ease of using this particular lens. I would recommend this for your camera. I have a trip to Hawaii next year and I cannot wait to use it there as well.

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.
