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 Four-Thirds (2X) sensors.

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 is capable of focusing 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 to see all current compatible digital cameras: Four-Thirds mount cameras with Four-Thirds (2X) or larger sensor.
