The Olympus 12-40mm is an upgrade to Olympus' standard zoom, now offering superior image quality and a faster aperture allowing the lens to be more flexible. This fits the bill of a pro lens in terms of both construction and performance. The lens is now dust and splash proof to be used in all conditions.


Heralding a new standard of M.ZUIKO lenses as the first model in the new M.ZUIKO PRO category, the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-40mm 1:2.8 PRO lens is engineered to meet the needs of professional photographers in all respects. When combined with the OLYMPUS OM-D, this large-aperture lens achieves the reputation of an unbelievably fast AF high-performance standard zoom. Its constant, bright aperture value of f2.8 at all focal lengths (equivalent to 24-80mm on a 35mm camera), combined with other sophisticated technologies including an MSC and Manual Focus Clutch mechanism, deliver high-grade image creation for a wide range of photographic styles, regardless of lighting conditions and distance. The compact and lightweight design also has a dust-proof and splash-proof construction compliant with professional use, expanding shooting capabilities even in the most testing of environments.


  • Pro image quality in all conditions
  • Autofocusing with high speed
