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.

  • 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.

    *5-Axis Sync IS, when using a compatible OM-D or PEN camera body. As of September 2016.

  • CLOSE ENCOUNTERS MADE EASY

    We designed the 12-100mm f4.0 PRO so that you can shoot near and far, even at exceedingly close range. This lens has a minimum working distance of 1.5 cm at the widest focal length, or just over half an inch from the front of the lens, for effortless macro shooting. The maximum magnification of .60x (35mm equivalent) lets you capture small details on small objects. Capture exquisitely textured shots of flowers, insects, jewelry or any other object where you need to get close, no additional lens required.

  • DESIGNED FOR CHALLENGING CONDITIONS

    If you can handle shooting in adverse conditions, so can the 12-100mm f4.0 IS PRO lens. Its pro-quality metal construction is hermetically sealed to keep out moisture and dust for splashproof, dustproof, and freezeproof performance. Pair this lens with a weatherproof OM-D body so that you can take advantage of every photo opportunity without ever worrying about your equipment.

    More
  • Convenience and Control

    The 12-100mm f4.0 IS PRO makes it easy to get the shots you need. The customizable Lens Function button lets you easily control your choice of camera functions right from the lens barrel. Programmable functions include Focus Peaking, AF Stop, and Magnify. The focus ring is equipped with a Manual Focus Clutch that allows you to quickly switch back and forth between manual and autofocus. You can even preset a focus position using the easy-to-read distance meter and instantly return to that position from AF Mode by simply pulling the ring towards you.

Not Worth The Money!!
I read a lot of reviews on this lens, and was so hopeful, even though leery of the extremely high price tag, to try it out. I purchased the lens last month, and have used it nearly everyday now in all types of situations, from city architecture to nature, to indoors, to sporting events. What I will say is the lens is OK. Pluses would be the nice zoom range from 12-100MM, and the additional IS within the lens. That said, I noticed absolutely no difference when shooting low lit scenes handheld if I had the IS turned on or off in terms of usable photos at slower speeds. The other pro is this comes with a hood, and a nice and smooth lockig hood at that. The other plus is the ease of going from auto to manual focus right on the body of the lens via sliding a collar up or down. The cons though are extreme. Purple fringing is TERRIBLE. barrel distortion between 12-25MM is TERRIBLE. It is very soft at the corners in all but F8 and F11, which is not what any review I read said. So, to me if I am paying $1200 for a PRO grade lens, I want to get that much more for my money. This is a highly overrated lens in my opinion, and frankly I am sorry I spent this kind of money on it as opposed to buying the 75MM F1.8 and another lens. It is pretty on the outside, but unless you shoot between 35-85MM and in bright light, it is definitely a bust.

All In one - perfect for filming
This is the perfect lens for travel. You got a wide angle for landscape, you can do studio portrait, environnemental portrait and you can zoom up to 100mm (200m in 35mm format). F4 is great for outdoor. Also, its by far my favorite lens for video...the double IS (lens+OMD E1 MII) is simply extraordinary for filming. Its just so smooth and the zoom is important. An awesome lens, sharp and versatile.

Most useful lens in my bag
This has become my "go to" lens for everyday carry. Just finished a trip to Egypt, and I could have just taken this one lens for the entire trip. Great range, unbelievable IS (I was shooting handheld in temples with 2-4 second exposures), IQ is the equal of all of my Olympus lenses. I had special permission to shoot inside of several pyramids and temples -- I didn't need to switch to my faster lens. Note, I use the OM-D EM-5 Mk II and the latest firmware supports the special IS of the lens. I have several Olympus PRO lenses to compare this with.
