Description

Standard wide-angle to portrait-length zoom lens is designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras and provides a 24-80mm equivalent focal length range. I was very much put off by the size at first but after some shooting, I really didn’t care that much! In May I was away for five days in Dubai for a business travel reportage job and 70% of my pictures were taken with the 12-40mm.

As you can see, if you set the lens to the maximum 40mm telephoto focal length, you can actually fill most of the frame.

By the time you get to the 40mm telephoto end of the lens, things have reversed into about 1% pin cushion distortion. Part of this might be because, as a PRO lens, Olympus advertises the 12-40 as extensively environmentally sealed - it's meant to be shock, dust, splash, and freeze-proofed to the same level as the E-M1 body.

As with most m4/3 lenses these days, the assumption is that you're going to be shooting JPEGs and using in-camera correction, or using a raw convertor that has lens corrections. MPB will also keep you informed about the status of your gear at every step of the way and the whole process is carbon neutral.The filter thread does not rotate on focus, which is great news for anyone intending to use a polariser or ND grads on the lens. Coupled with a lens construction where only two cemented lenses are moved to adjust focus, the Olympus 12-40mm ƒ/2.

Then, if you decide to sell, MPB will pick up your kit with a free insured DPD collection and you’ll get paid cash into your account within days. FAVORITE SUBJECT TO PHOTOGRAPH: Chris enjoys creating conceptual work that makes people stare at his photos. Instead this is provided by the camera body, in this instance the excellent 5-axis system in the OM-D E-M1. maximum aperture throughout the zoom range, the Mark II version of the OM System 12-40mm PRO lens is well suited to a variety of applications, including Portrait, Architecture, Low light, Nature, Travel, Landscape, photography and videography and designed for use with Micro Four Thirds cameras. Pro lens itself is very well built, fully living up to the PRO designation that Olympus have given it.

EDUCATION: Chris graduated Magna Cum Laude from Adelphi University with a degree in Communications in Journalism in 2009. The focus ring has a clutch mechanism that allows you to rapidly switch to manual focus, something seen on the 12mm and also on some Fuji XF lenses.
