Olympus M.Zuiko 12-100mm F4 ED IS PRO Lens

Featuring advanced optics and a rugged, weather-sealed construction, the Olympus 12-100mm f/4 ED IS PRO Lens is built to withstand the demands of professional photography. The lens features a sophisticated optical design that includes 17 elements in 11 groups, with advanced lens coatings that minimize ghosting and flare.

One of the key features of this lens is its image stabilization system, which provides up to 5 stops of compensation for camera shake. This makes it possible to shoot at slower shutter speeds without blur, even in low light conditions. The lens also features a fast, accurate autofocus system that delivers smooth and silent operation, making it ideal for both still photography and video.

The Olympus 12-100mm f/4 ED IS PRO Lens is designed for use in a variety of shooting situations, including landscapes, portraits, wildlife, and sports. Its compact and lightweight design makes it easy to carry and handle, while its advanced optics and image stabilization system deliver exceptional image quality.

In addition to its advanced optics and image stabilization system, the Olympus 12-100mm f/4 ED IS PRO Lens also features a rugged, weather-sealed construction that is dustproof, splashproof, and freezeproof down to -10°C. This makes it a versatile and reliable lens that can be used in a wide range of shooting conditions.

The M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-100mm F4.0 IS PRO zoom lens was designed and developed to provide excellent image quality and high magnification, all in a compact size. When combined with a Sync-IS-compatible camera, 5-axis Sync IS can be utilized, delivering the world's most powerful stabilisation performance equivalent to 6.5 shutter speed stops. This is a professional high-magnification zoom lens that truly meets the demands of professional photographers.

    • Unrivaled mobility
    • Excellent image quality and high magnification in a compact size
    • A fast, constant f/4.0 aperture throughout the entire zoom range

    • World's most powerful stabilisation performance equivalent to 6.5 shutter speed stops[1]
    • Allows recording video with minimal shake

Excellent image quality required by professional photographers is delivered throughout the entire zoom range, from the 24mm wide angle end to the 200mm telephoto end. The performance of two competitor lenses is packed into this one lens, providing outstanding mobility for the photographer. Wide-angle shots, telephoto shots, macro shots, nightscapes, and movies can all be taken with this one lens.

Four aspherical lenses including a DSA lens are effectively placed to suppress aberrations that may occur when zooming. Five ED lenses suppress colour bleeding that tends to occur at the telephoto end, and secure image quality to the very edges of images throughout the entire zoom range.

DSA lenses and Super HR lenses are used to keep the number of lenses in the configuration to a minimum. Also, DSA lenses are made of glass with a higher refractive index than previous products, making the lens more compact.

A maximum aperture of f/4.0 is delivered throughout the entire zoom range from wide-angle to telephoto, overturning the conventional wisdom that the telephoto side of a zoom lens is always darker.

The MSC (Movie and Still Compatible) mechanism is an advanced inner focusing mechanism providing fast, smooth, quiet, and accurate auto-focusing. It is made possible by Olympus high-precision lens fabrication technology which makes the focusing lenses lighter. This not only contributes to the speed and precision of focusing, but also to keeping the lens compact. With Face Detection AF and Eye Detection AF available on Olympus interchangeable cameras, auto-focusing is taken to another level.

The new Z Coating Nano technology is used on this lens to thoroughly suppress ghosts and flares, providing the photographer with sharp, clear images. By coating the lens surface with a layer of nanoscale-size particles filled with air, a coating layer with a similar refractive index as air is achieved, for reduced surface reflection.

The M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-100mm F4.0 IS PRO includes an in-lens image stabilisation system, which, when combined with the Olympus camera in-body 5-axis image stabilisation, makes 5-axis Sync IS possible.

5-axis sync IS achieves 6.5 shutter speed stops of stabilisation performance. On its own, the lens achieves 5 shutter speed stops of stabilisation performance. Hermetic sealing in 12 locations protects against ingress of dust and water droplets, making it possible to shoot in any situation without worry.

The MF (manual focus) Clutch provides instant switching between auto and manual focusing. Simply pull the focus ring toward you to switch from autofocus to manual focus to shoot at your desired focus distance. On the lens barrel is a customisable button to which a function of your choice can be assigned, via the camera. Once assigned, a simple push of this button will activate and deactivate your function of choice.

The Olympus M.Zuiko 12-100mm F4 ED IS PRO Lens comes with a full Australian warranty.
