Micro Four Thirds Mount: The Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED
12-100mm f4.0 IS PRO lens has a Micro Four Thirds mount, and is compatible with the Olympus PEN
and OM-D interchangeable lens cameras.
Lens Construction: The 12-100mm f4.0 IS PRO lens delivers
superior optical performance due to the multiple lens elements that make up its
construction. There are 17 lens elements in 11 groups. The lens includes 1 DSA
lens, 3 Aspherical lenses, 5 ED lenses, 2 Super HR lenses, and 1 HR lens. This
combination provides superior resolution, sharpness, and suppresses aberrations. The lens also features Z Coating Nano lens coatings to
eliminate lens flares and ghosting caused by in-frame light sources.
Weather-resistant: The M.Zuiko 12-100mm PRO lens features
premium metal construction that is hermetically sealed in several locations to protect the inner
workings from moisture and dust. The lens is not only splashproof and dustproof,
but is freezeproof down to 14°F (-10°C) to complement the weatherproof camera
body of the Olympus OM-D line.
Image Stabilization (IS): The lens features internal image
stabilization that provides up to 5 shutter speed steps of compensation. When
mounted to a compatible OM-D or PEN camera body with 5-Axis Image Stabilization,
the compensation increases to up to 6.5 steps.
With this Synchronized Image Stabilization, you get crisp, clear telephoto
images, even without a tripod. You can turn the image stabilization on or off
via the IS switch on the lens barrel.
Auto Focus: The M.Zuiko Digital lens is equipped with a
single internal focusing element that gives you blazing fast autofocus
performance. The lens has silent autofocus and aperture mechanisms to make the
lens Movie and Still Compatible (MSC). Most OM-D cameras have a Silent Mode with
an electronic shutter that let you focus and shoot in complete silence.
Manual Focus Clutch: The 12-100mm f4.0 IS PRO lens features a
manual focus clutch on the focus ring to let you instantly shift from autofocus
to manual focus. The clutch allows you to manually preset a focus position using
the distance meter. When you pull the clutch ring toward you from the AF mode,
the lens returns to the preset focus position.
Lens Hood: The lens includes the LH-76B lens hood, which
helps prevent stray light from entering the lens. The lens hood also protects the front lens
element from scratches and damage. The lens hood adds nearly 1.5" to the
overall length of the lens when installed. When not it use, the hood can be
inverted and mounted backward on the
lens for storage. In addition to the lens hood, the LSC-0914 Soft Lens Case is also included.
Lens Function Button: The L-Fn (Lens Function) button on the
barrel of the lens can be programmed to perform several different functions,
including Focus Peaking, AF Stop, and Magnify.
