The Olympus 12-45mm f4 PRO Lens - Black is a high-performance standard zoom lens boasting the world’s most compact, lightweight design for amazing mobility. With a fixed aperture value across the entire zoom range and superb macro capabilities this lens delivers high resolution combined with amazing portability for convenient carry in a small bag. It also features a dustproof and splashproof construction for enjoying high image quality photography in various environments.
The optical configuration of this lens is inherited from the M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm F2.8 PRO lens, which is well-recognized for its high resolution. Effective placement of special lenses in the M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-45mm F4.0 PRO lens allow for the world’s most compact, lightweight design. It also achieves superb resolution to the edge of the frame across the entire zoom range, making the most of the appealing aspects of the Micro Four Thirds System standard.
This is the world’s most compact, lightweight standard zoom lens with a fixed aperture value covering a focal length from wide angle 24mm to telephoto 90mm (35mm equivalent).
This lens consists of nearly 190 precision machined components all mounted in a dense configuration, resulting in a size of 63.4 mm (max. diameter) x 70 mm (overall length), and a weight of approximately 254 g. A small and lightweight focusing lens enables high-speed, precise AF for any subject.
The lens features a dustproof and splashproof construction with sealing in 9 places to keep out dust and rain, providing peace of mind when shooting in active situations.
Effective placement of aspherical lenses and ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) Coating provides clear depictive performance, drastically reduce aberrations, ghosts, and flare for sharp, high-definition image quality. Because the aperture value is fixed across the entire focal length, it is easy to control the exposure when zooming and when recording video.
Enjoy intense macro shooting with a maximum magnification of 0.5x across the entire zoom range. The closest focusing distance is 12 cm at the wide-angle end, and 23 cm at the telephoto end, delivering a wide range of macro shooting effects such as wide-angle macro shots that emphasize a sense of perspective by capturing vast backgrounds, and telephoto macro shots for more significant background defocusing effects.
