The upgraded zoom lens you’ve always wanted, the new OM SYSTEM M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40MM F2.8 PRO II Lens is a bright, fast lens that remains both compact and lightweight while delivering exceptional image quality practically anywhere and in all conditions, even low light.

This lens uses an optical design with 14 elements in 9 groups (1 EDA lens, 2 aspherical lens, 1 DSA lens, 2 ED lens, 1 HD lens, 2 HR lens) with 4 aspherical lenses including a DSA lens effectively placed to achieve a compact, lightweight form and superior depictive performance of an M.Zuiko PRO lens. Effectively compensating for aberrations that occur when zooming, results in high resolution from the center to the edges of the frame across the entire zoom range.

The latest manufacturing techniques suppress surface scattering on aspherical lenses, significantly reducing flares compared to conventional products, resulting in clearer depictive performance. Optimal placement of coating, including ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating, improves resistance to backlighting.

Shoot as close as 20cm for 0.6x magnification shots that rivals half-macro lenses and get high resolution images across the entire focusing range. This compact, weathersealed, and bright lens handles everything from wide-angle to mid-range telephoto shots. The M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-40mm F2.8 PRO II is a powerful zoom that belongs in every gear bag.


IP53 Weather Sealed

Focus on your subject, not the weather. An advanced system of seals fully protects the lens from dust, water and freezing temperatures for worry-free shooting.

Compact & Lightweight

It's the definition of portable. This pocket-sized lens weighs under 400g and is 50% lighter than other standard zooms for 35mm format mirrorless cameras.

Zero Coating

This cutting-edge coating suppresses ghosting and flare to deliver exceptional image quality in challenging shooting environments such as a backlit scene.

Flourine Coating

Instantly wipe away dirt, dust and snow without streaking thanks to an advanced, high-performance coating that helps keep your glass pristine.

Manual Focus Clutch

If you’re using auto focus and need to switch to manual, simply pull the focus ring towards you. Keep shooting and never lose your focus.

Function Button

You’ll find an L-fn button conveniently placed on the lens barrel ready to be assigned a specific action or enabling a custom setting.

20cm Minumum Focus Distance

This lens features a closest focusing distance of 20 cm across the entire zoom range. At the wide-angle end, you can enjoy macro shooting with an enhanced sense of perspective, and at the telephoto end a maximum image magnification of 0.6x that rivals half-macro lenses, for authentic close-up shooting. The lens is capable of various styles of macro shooting and includes support for Focus Stacking which is useful for close-up shooting.

High Speed Autofocus

The Movie and Still Compatible mechanism has been redesigned to drive the focusing lenses quickly and silently for more responsive auto focusing.
