Olympus M.Zuiko ED 12-40mm f.2.8 PRO

Overview

Our thoughts

'There are good standard zooms and excellent standard zooms. This example falls into the latter of the two categories and is a sensational lens for Micro Four Thirds users. Equivalent to 24-80mm, it’s extremely light (382g), boasts a rugged, splash-dust-and freeze proof construction and can focus within 20cm of a subject at any point in its zoom range. The manual focus ring that’s pulled back to engage manual focus can be knocked quite easily, but keep it pushed forward and autofocus for stills and video performs fast and silently. Optically it’s a very sharp lens and controls aberrations, distortion and vignetting commendably. It’s a lens we can’t imagine venturing out without when using an advanced Micro Four Thirds camera.'
