M.Zuiko Digital 12-50mm f3.5-6.3

A weathersealed standard wide angle zoom Lens.  A perfect compliment for the weather proofed OM-D E-M5.

24-100mm f3.5-6.3 equivalent in 35mm format

The ideal standard zoom lens for video and stills capture. Its motorised zoom mechanism provides a smooth constant rate zoom action for optimum video zooming quality. Splash and dust proof.




12-50, a Versatile All Round Zoom Lens.

This standard wide angle zoom lens uses a motorised zoom mechanism that enables a smooth and constant-rate lens zooming action, required in professional digital-film recording applications. An improved version of Olympus’ MSC (Movie & Still Compatible) high-speed autofocus lens drive mechanism, made possible with a newly developed linear drive motor, provides enhanced focusing performance. The 24-100mm (35mm film format equivalent) focal length provides an extremely versatile super wide-angle to short-telephoto zoom capability, giving it superb credentials as a standard lens. Its non-telescoping lens barrel is fully sealed against dust and moisture.

High Performance Optics With Shooting Versatility.

Dual Aspherical, Aspherical, Extra Low Dispersion and HR glass is utilised within the 12-50. A floating lens design optimises internal lens element positioning throughout the zoom and focus distances, to maximise imaging performance at all capture distances. A clutch allows for manual or electronic focusing abilities whilst a macro function with a magnification of 0.78x allows for close focusing possibilities.
