Lens Description

The Olympus Zuiko 12-60mm F/2.8-4 SWD ED is an ultra-wide to short telephoto zoom designed for cameras with a Four-Thirds (2X) sensor. This bright variable-aperture zoom covers a 12mm to 60mm focal-range. It provides the same field of view as a 24-120mm lens on a Full-Frame camera. The body of this lens is weatherproof against adverse weather such as rain and snow. It has sealing to prevent entry of water and dust.

This zoom can focus down to 25cm from the imaging plane which gives it a maximum magnification of 0.28X. The lens offers a Quick-Shift AF system which lets the user simply rotate the focus-ring to focus manually. A Super-Sonic motor inside the lens delivers very fast and relatively quiet AF.

This lens is only available for Four-Thirds. Follow this link for all current compatible digital cameras: Four-Thirds mount cameras.
