  • This is a real surprise considering Olympus current speculative "doom" in the market. At least if its delivered in march.

    Is there also a new body to accompany it on the way?

    Going beyond the 10x zoom factor is also a rather impressive feat.

    lenses departments are more or less safe.

    As it is small amount of people, almost no new investment and margins are good.

    Olympus is pleased to announce the M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-200mm F3.5-6.3 (35mm equivalent 24-400mm) super telephoto zoom lens. Conforming to the Micro Four Thirds® System Standard, this lens features the highest magnification zoom available on an interchangeable lens for mirrorless systems at 16.6x . Users will experience excellent depictive performance across the entire focal length from wide-angle to telephoto, making it the perfect travel companion, packing high-speed and high-precision autofocus into an amazingly compact, lightweight form. The M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-200mm F3.5-6.3 lens features a dustproof and splashproof construction, making this lens durable enough to withstand the toughest shooting conditions, especially when paired with a weathersealed Olympus OM-D® camera body.

    When shooting wide, the closest focusing distance is approximately 22 cm (approximately 10 cm from the end of the lens) from the main subject for capturing the subject along with an expansive background. When shooting telephoto, the maximum magnification of 0.46x (35mm equivalent) for close-up photography and for significant background defocusing. This do-it-all lens is perfect for close-ups of children's expressions, indoor and outdoor situations and a variety of other subjects.

    This lens is equipped with the MSC (Movie and Still Compatible) mechanism, an advanced inner focusing mechanism providing fast, smooth, quiet and accurate auto-focusing, ideal for video shooters. Users will enjoy a short shooting time lag, so split-second photo opportunities are not missed. Amazingly high-speed, precise autofocus performance on this high-magnification zoom lens will provide comfortable, fun shooting.

    ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating, Olympus' cutting-edge thin-coating technology, cultivated from multilayer film disposition technology used in microscopes, has been applied to the M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-200mm F3.5-6.3 lens to drastically reduce ghosts and flares, contributing to a clear, high-contrast image.
