A Zuiko extra-low reflection optical (ZERO) coating and Z Coating Nano with nanoscale-size particles have been applied to reduce lens flare and ghosting. The result is improved sharpness and contrast for clear images. By reducing surface reflection, ghosts and flaring are eliminated to give your images uninterrupted clarity. With the ability to smooth out colour aberrations even under challenging conditions such as backlighting, your images will be clear without unwanted optical disruption.
With four aspherical lenses including a DSA lens and five ED lenses, unwanted colour bleeding and aberrations that can occur with wide-angle and telephoto lenses are removed. The elements work to give edge-to-edge sharpness throughout the entire zoom range. You’ll be able to shoot starry night skies and produce high-quality imagery in a range of lighting conditions.
A maximum aperture of f/4.0 is delivered throughout the entire zoom range for wide-angle to telephoto capability. From the 12mm on the wide-angle end to 100mm on the telephoto end, this lens offers great versatility to play around with different settings and photography styles. With a professional-standard high-magnification zoom of 24-200mm equivalent, you can shoot up close in vivid detail or zoom out and brilliantly capture the stars at night in the sky. You can also take a range of cinema-quality videos in between your stills to capture a great variety of media.
Packaged in a compact and lightweight casing, this lens is easy to carry around with you wherever you go. Whether you’re travelling or working, you’ll be able to add the Olympus M.Zuiko Pro 12-100mm f4.0 lens to your kit without feeling weighed down.
The Movie and Still Compatible (MSC) mechanism makes the autofocus fast and precise in this lens. With advanced inner focusing, focus is quick, accurate and near silent. Face detection and eye detection make it easier to pinpoint the key section of the photograph to emphasise on when focusing.
For steady shots that aren’t affected by hand shake, this Olympus Pro series lens is equipped with internal image stabilisation. When paired with an Olympus camera that has internal 5-axis image stabilisation, the 5-axis Sync IS is used to its full advantage - able to compensate for up to 6.5 stops of camera shake.

If you’re only going to have one lens, this is it. The Olympus M.Zuiko ED 12-100mm f/4 IS PRO lens is a great all-rounder, for everyday use, travel, portraits and even video.
No, this lens does physically extend as you zoom to 100mm. The construction of this lens is excellent.
This lens is 24-200mm (35mm equivalent), which is a great choice if you’re only wanting to carry one lens around with you.
To use the clutch, slide the focus ring forwards or backwards. It is the ring closest to the front element. It moves back and forth enabling manual or auto focus.
The lens hood is always handy to have on the lens at all times for two reasons: it helps keep any stray light from entering the lens, and it will help protect your lens from any knocks or bumps.
This lens has a 72mm filter thread, so we’d suggest putting a protection filter on the lens to protect it from scratches, bumps and fingerprints. We suggest keeping this lens in a camera bag or lens pouch when not in use which will help protect it during storage also.
