High-Performance Standard Zoom Lens

The OM SYSTEM M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm F2.8 PRO II (35mm equivalent: 24-80mm) is a top-notch standard zoom lens with F2.8 brightness throughout the zoom range, from 24mm equivalent wide-angle to 80mm equivalent mid-range telephoto. This is the successor to the iconic classic Micro Four Thirds M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm F2.8 PRO standard zoom lens, and it offers improved image quality and weatherproofing thanks to the latest advances.

Optical Design with 14 Elements in 9 Groups for Excellent Resolution Across the Entire Zoom Range

The M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm F2.8 PRO II lens employs an optical configuration with 14 elements in 9 groups (1 EDA lens, 2 aspherical lenses, 1 DSA lens, 2 ED lenses, 1 HD lens, 2 HR lenses) with 4 aspherical lenses, including a DSA lens, strategically placed to obtain a compact, lightweight form and excellent depictive performance of an M.Zuiko PRO lens. By effectively accounting for zoom-induced aberrations, great resolution is achieved from the centre to the corners of the frame across the whole zoom range, from wide-angle 24mm equivalent to mid-telephoto 80mm equivalent. When utilising High Res Shot mode, this outstanding-performance lens maximises the camera body's high image quality capability.

Clearer, Sharper Imaging Than Ever Before

The most recent manufacturing procedures suppress surface scattering on aspherical lenses, resulting in much lower flares when compared to standard crisper depictive performance. Optimal coating applications, including ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating, enhance backlighting resistance.

Advanced IP53 Dustproof and Splashproof Performance, and Freezeproof Performance to -10°C 

The OM SYSTEM M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm F2.8 PRO II lens passes the IPX3 and higher splashproof tests, significantly outperforming the standard IPX1 rating, as well as the dustproof testing. Both have IP53 dustproof and splashproof ratings for further peace of mind in harsher environments. The M.Zuiko Digital 12-40mm F2.8 PRO II lens can also function in low-temperature situations as low as -10°C, and when combined with a dustproof, splashproof, and freezeproof camera body, you can shoot in severe environments such as rain, snow, and even dusty environments with confidence. 

Fluorine Coating Added 

The fluorine coating on the front most lens is effective in minimising friction in addition to repelling water, oil, and dust. When the ED 12-40mm F2.8 PRO II lens becomes dirty, it can be quickly cleaned using a blower or cloth, allowing users to resume shooting right away. 

Close-up Shooting Performance with a Maximum Image Magnification of 0.6x1

Across the whole zoom range, the OM SYSTEM M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm F2.8 PRO II lens has a closest focusing distance of 20 cm. Users can experience macro photography with an enhanced feeling of perspective at the wide-angle end, and a maximum image magnification of 0.6x at the telephoto end, which matches half-macro lenses for authentic close-up shooting. The lens is capable of a variety of macro photography techniques and incorporates Focus Stacking support, which is useful for close-up photography.

An MSC Mechanism Enables High-speed, Silent AF

The compact, the lightweight focusing device is powered by a linear motor driving the MSC (Movie and Still Compatible) mechanism, resulting in high-speed, silent AF. This design makes it simple to capture still photographs and videos. Because of superior camera control technology, the lens is capable of roughly 50 fps (AF/AE tracking) continuous shooting on the OM SYSTEM OM-1.

Superb Controls for Quick Setting Changes

With the Manual Focus Clutch mechanism, pull the focus ring towards you to immediately switch to manual focus, and use the L-Fn (lens function) button to manage the lens with a single finger. These capabilities enable users to easily switch settings as needed in order to continue shooting without interruption.
