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.

    Portability and Utility

    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.

I am appreciating the lens a great deal. I am enjoying the leap in reach and not noticing a limitation in f4.

I just switched to Olympus in December and agonized over my first lens. I had already decided on the 100-400, but decided to get a mid range zoom first. I was torn between the 12-40 and the 12-100. I watched and read other comparison reviews and decided that I would like the extra reach, giving up the wider lens opening. I am glad I did choose the 12-100. I have been taking scenic/closeups and the image quality and handling of the lens is great.

A wonderful walking lens for a wonderful camera

I purchased this lens bundled with the OMD M1 Mark 3 for a lighter single lens travel camera. I am so happy that i did as the lens is very sharp and the camera focuses super fast. I also like to take macro and flower photos and this lens focus extremely close so i do not need a macro lens. The trade off is that this lens is F4, but i knew this and on the OMD M1 Mark 3 it is about 1/3 of the weight of my Canon DSLR's with a 70-200 F2.8 and about !/4 of the weight in my camera bag with my other 2 lens that i would normally carry. Loving it.
