The Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12mm f/2 is a high-grade, fast wide-angle lens for the Micro Four Thirds system. Courtesy of built-in depth of field and distance indicators, the lens is ideal for zone focusing - but it also offers quiet and fast Movie & Stills Compatible auto focus for those that prefer to use AF over manual focus. With a close-focus point of 0.2m and a maximum aperture of f/2, this lens allows users to play with perspective and depth of field in rather unusual ways. The Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12mm f/2 lens features a metal barrel and an enhanced multi-layer lens coating which, according to Olympus, halves the effects of ghosting and flaring compared to conventional comparable coatings. The lens will be available for around £700 from early July, 2011.
