The Olympus 12-100mm f/4 ED IS PRO Micro 4/3 Lens

The Olympus 12-100mm f/4 ED IS PRO is a wide-angle-to-telephoto zoom designed for Micro 4/3 cameras. Key features include:

Ridiculous Range/Constant Aperture. The big selling point here is the zoom. On a Micro 4/3 body, you’re getting the equivalent of a 24-200 on a full-frame camera. At just over an 8x range, that’s everything from truly wide to truly tele in a single lens. The f/4 aperture isn’t exactly supersonic in terms of speed but it remains constant across the range, making it a good choice for still shooters and videographers alike.

High-Quality Optics. The 12-100mm optical formula is in line with Olympus’s other PRO-series lenses. This lens’s incredibly complex optical construction consists of seventeen elements in fourteen groups, including one double-sided aspherical element, three standard aspherical elements, five extra-low-dispersion elements, and three high-refractive-index elements (including two Super HR elements). This glass menagerie works together to control aberrations and make things sharp and clear, all while reducing color fringing. There’s both a ZERO Coating and a Z Coating Nano applied to each lens element to reduce surface reflections and prevent lens flare and ghosting. The bottom line: this lens makes a pretty nice picture.

Force Level Stabilization. The five-axis Sync Image-Stabilization system helps cut out the jitters when shooting hand-held or at lower shutter speeds. But when paired with an Olympus body, the 12-100 plays a special kind of Jedi Mind Trick. The camera body’s and this lens’s combined image-stabilization systems account for 6.5 stops of shake prevention, which will keep your photos sharper and more focused.

High-Quality Build. The build quality matches the high-grade optics. The dust-, splash-, and freeze-proof design keeps you shooting without fear of poor working conditions. There’s a programmable L-Fn button for customization, a manual focus-clutch function, and a depth-of-field scale built onto the lens itself.

If you don't see exactly what you're looking for and that makes you sad, please give us a shout. We might have good news for you. Here's a link to our contact form.

We offer a 3-day inspection period on all sales, during which time you may return the item for a refund of the purchase price, not including shipping.

On this item, we include a LensAuthority 90-day limited warranty. This warranty covers damage that arises from normal use of the item. It does NOT cover accidental or intentional damage. More details are available in our FAQ section.

In addition to the standard 90-day warranty, you may have the option to purchase an extended warranty. If we're able to offer an extended warranty on this item, you'll see a checkbox to add that warranty - see the area just above the "Add to Cart" button.

If you select the extended warranty, you'll get additional protection from Consumer Priority Service ("CPS"). The CPS warranty will take effect after our 90-day warranty ends. However, the CPS warranty term would begin on the date of purchase. For example, if you buy an item with a 2-year extended warranty today, your coverage would end two years from today.
