Olympus Announces The M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-200mm F3.5-6.3 Zoom Lens

- 5 years ago

Unveiled by Olympus as the world’s most powerful zoom lens in the mirrorless camera class, to date. The new Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-200mm F3.5-6.3 lens packs a 16.6x high-magnification zoom that promises excellent depictive performance across the whole focal length, from wide angle to telephoto.

Loaded in the compact and lightweight body, you’ll find high-speed, high-precision autofocus [AF], along with dust, splash and freezeproof build and covering a focal length of 12-200mm [35mm equivalent: 24-400mm] this could be an ideal choice for landscape, street and portrait photography.

To overcome chromatic aberrations and distortions across the zoom range while keeping its compact design, Olympus has given attention to the arrangement of special optics including Super ED and aspherical lenses. ZERO [Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical] coating drastically reduces ghosts and flares.

Moreover, the new Olympus ED 12-200mm F3.5-6.3 is furnished with the MSC [Movie and Still Compatible] focus mechanism that uses an inner focus system which moves a single lightweight lens for focusing. This allows for high-speed AF performance in order not to miss split-second photo moments.
