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.

  • 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.

Amazing image quality, just not a perfect fit on my Panasonic bodies.
First off, I shoot with the Panasonic GH5, GH5s and GH4 bodies and have always purchased Panasonic lenses only. However, due to the specs and high ratings on this Olympus lens, I thought it would fit perfectly for my needs. The pros - it is a spectacularly sharp and capable lens. I won't go into the details about the lens because there's plenty of that to read online. But it handles well and my images and videos are tack sharp. I love the focal range and the constant f/4 aperature. Not great for low light, but I bought it only for daylight and decently-lit situations. The cons - well, I'm on my second copy after sending the first one back for a replacement. The first one didn't quite fit my Panasonic bodies perfectly. There was a little play in the rotation of the lens after attaching it (about a mm), so when I'd zoom to each end of the focal lengths and then back, I could feel the slight movement in the rotation. I REALLY hated that. Sadly, my second copy does the SAME thing! Olympus and Panasonic techs were no help with this, so I just kept the second copy. Secondly, the zooming and focusing is the opposite of my Panasonic lenses, so I find myself constantly zooming and focusing in the wrong direction each time. I guess it's going to take some getting used to between my brain and muscle memory. I understand that nothing's perfect, but at least on this lens the image quality sings! It's definitely a keeper.

I shouldn't have waited so long to get a Pro lens
I've had 11 other other lenses. My 12-100 Pro makes an even dozen purchased. I should have purchased this lens sooner but I was trying to find a good lens for less money. The old saying "You get what you pay for" applies to lenses as well. I can now cull down my lens inventory as this lens is remarkable and will be the lens I'll be using 90% of the time. I'll fill in the other 10% with prime lenses for special uses. This 12-100 Pro lens will serve me well for travel and will let me reduce the size of my vacation kit, most likely to this single lens. So glad I took the plunge to a Pro quality lens.

The Must-have lens in your kit
Optically this lens is excellent. The layout of controls is first rate as is the quality of materials. Along with the very useful zoom range, this is a must-have lens. But when you add in the image stabilization and the way it works with OM-D cameras, it become brilliant. If I could have only 1 Olympus lens... this is it.
