Product Details


The technical details behind this lens

The M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm F2.8 PRO II (35mm equivalent: 24-80mm) is a high-performance, standard zoom lens featuring the brightness of F2.8 across the entire zoom range from wide-angle 24mm equivalent to mid-range telephoto 80mm equivalent. This is the successor to the popular classic Micro Four Thirds M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm F2.8 PRO standard zoom lens and offers improved image quality and weather-resistant performance thanks to the latest technologies.

Reliable weather-resistant performance for stress-free shooting even in punishing environments

Advanced IP53 dustproof and splashproof performance, and freezeproof performance to -10°C

It features IP53 dustproof and splashproof performance for peace of mind in even more punishing conditions. It also functions in low-temperature environments down to -10°C, and pairing this lens with a dustproof, splashproof, and freezeproof camera body makes it possible to continue shooting in punishing environments such as rain, snow, and even dusty environments with peace of mind.

Fluorine coating added

In addition to water, oil, and dust repellent performance, the fluorine the coating on the front-most lens is also effective in reducing friction. This lens can easily be cleaned with a blower or cloth when it gets dirty, allowing users to continue shooting immediately.

MAIN FEATURES: M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm F2.8 PRO II

Further improved high image quality and a compact, lightweight design in a standard zoom lens with a fixed maximum aperture of F2.8

Optical design with 14 elements in 9 groups for excellent resolution across the entire zoom range

This model uses an optical design with 14 elements in 9 groups (1 EDA lens, 2 aspherical lens, 1 DSA lens, 2 ED lens, 1 HD lens, 2 HR lens) with 4 aspherical lenses including a DSA lens effectively placed to achieve a compact, lightweight form and superior depictive performance of an M.Zuiko PRO lens. Effectively compensating for aberrations that occur when zooming, results in high resolution from the center to the edges of the frame across the entire zoom range, from wide-angle 24mm equivalent1 to mid-telephoto 80mm equivalent. This high-performance lens fully utilises the high image quality performance of the camera body when using High Res Shot mode.

Clearer, sharper imaging than ever before

The latest manufacturing techniques suppress surface scattering on aspherical lenses, significantly reducing flares compared to conventional products, resulting in clearer depictive performance. Optimal placement of coating, including ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating, improves resistance to backlighting.

Versatile features for a wide range of applications, including macro shooting

Close-up shooting performance with a maximum image magnification of 0.6x1

This lens features a closest focusing distance of 20 cm across the entire zoom range. At the wide-angle end, users can enjoy macro shooting with an enhanced sense of perspective, and at the telephoto end a maximum image magnification of 0.6x that rivals half-macro lenses, for authentic close-up shooting. The lens is capable of various styles of macro shooting and includes support for Focus Stacking which is useful for close-up shooting.

An MSC mechanism enables high-speed, silent AF

The compact, lightweight focusing unit consisting of two cemented lenses is powered by a linear motor driving MSC (Movie and Still Compatible) mechanism, resulting in high-speed, silent AF. This design makes shooting still images and videos easy. The lens is capable of approximately 50 fps (AF/AE tracking) sequential shooting on the OM SYSTEM OM-1 thanks to advanced camera control technology.

Superb controls for quick setting changes

Pull the focus ring toward you to instantly switch to manual focus with the Manual Focus Clutch mechanism and use the L-Fn (lens function) button to control the lens with a single finger. These features allow users to quickly switch settings as needed to continue shooting without delay.
