JUST ANNOUNCED: Olympus M.Zuiko ED 12-200mm F3.5-6.3 Zoom Lens
13 February 2019 | Category: General News
The M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-200mm F3.5-6.3 boasts the longest zoom range of any mirrorless interchangeable lens, while its splashproof, dustproof construction makes it one of the most versatile lenses available today. Its 35mm equivalent focal range of 24 to 400mm takes you from wide-angle to super-telephoto, offering superb image quality and unrivalled system mobility.
16.6X ZOOM FOR ULTIMATE VERSATILITY
The 12-200mm F3.5-6.3 offers an extremely powerful 16.6x zoom range, making this one of the most versatile mirrorless lenses available. From expansive landscapes and architecture to wildlife and sports, this lens has you covered no matter where you travel.
DUSTPROOF & SPLASHPROOF CONSTRUCTION
The 12-200mm F3.5-6.3 goes wherever you go, no matter the weather. When used with a weathersealed OM-D camera body, robust hermetic sealing allows you to shoot in the most challenging conditions like a driving rain storm or a dusty hiking trail.
COMPACT & LIGHTWEIGHT
At just under 4 inches collapsed and weighing just over 1 pound, this lens is truly an engineering marvel. When combined with a weathersealed OM-D body, overall system weight is significantly less than most equivalent mirrorless and SLR systems. You’ll never hesitate to bring the 12-200mm F3.5-6.3 lens with you, so you’re always ready to capture an amazing shot.
FAST AND PRECISE AUTOFOCUS
The 12-200mm F3.5-6.3 is equipped with a single, lightweight internal focusing element that allows the lens to focus extraordinarily fast. An MSC (Movie & Still Compatible) mechanism means this lens is just as quiet as it is fast, making it an ideal choice for still photographers and video shooters alike.
EXCELLENCE IN OPTICS
The 12-200mm F3.5-6.3's 16 elements in 11 groups consist of cutting-edge lens elements pioneered by Olympus. Extra-low dispersion glass combined with ZERO Coating keeps aberrations, ghosts and flares to a minimum, while an advanced optical design virtually eliminates breathing, maintaining your angle of view through the entire focusing range.
CLOSE FOCUSING PERFORMANCE
The 12-200mm F3.5-6.3 can focus as close as 10cm from the end of the lens at the widest focal length, allowing you to get close to your subject while still showing expansive backgrounds. When shooting at the telephoto end, a 50cm working distance will give you beautifully defocused backgrounds for professional looking portraits.
