    PERFECT SIZE, PERFECT SHOT

    M.Zuiko PRO lenses are significantly smaller than many professional DSLR lenses of equivalent specifications. Using a much more compact system expands your shooting field and increases photographic possibilities

    SHHH, AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHY IN PROGRESS

    The inclusion of the Movie & Still Compatible (MSC) mechanism makes Auto Focus operations nearly silent. In combination with the OM-D's silent electronic shutter, you can photograph skittish nature subjects as well as indoor events that require complete silence like musical performances. The size and weight of the OM-D system and these silent features open up a whole new world of shooting possibilities!

Great output

Great solis lens with a sharp clear outut. Photos are pin sharp and color correct. A bit hefty but you would expect it for a PRO lens. No complaints and no issues

My Favorite Lens

The Olympus M.ZUIKO 12-40mm f/2.8 Pro lens is always on my camera body. I shoot more pictures with this lens than any other lens in my kit. This lens is effectively a 24mm to 80mm zoom (in full frame); slightly wide angle to a short telephoto. In addition it will focus to about 20cm or 8 inches, so you can get very close to the subject and it focuses fast. The 2.8 maximum aperture also provides excellent bokeh. It's perfect for most of the photographs I make. If someone was going to buy an Olympus Micro-Four-Thirds camera body, I would recommending getting this as your first lens. Don't leave home without it!

A must have, great lens addition.

Stunning image quality. Easy to carry everywhere everyday, extremely versatile piece of equipment, and at f2.8 very sharp and bright images. Very solid build, quality, weather sealed manual focus clutch, very fast auto focus when needed +++ I am happy I purchased this one.
