Olympus is launching an all-black limited edition of its M.Zuiko Digital ED 12mm f/2 Micro Four Thirds lens. Equivalent to a 24mm ultra-wideanlge optic in a 35mm system, the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12mm f/2 (read review) is a high-grade, all-metal, fast lens that features built-in depth of field and distance indicators, making it ideal for zone focusing. Available from October, the special-edition M.Zuiko Digital ED 12mm f/2 will retail for £849, which includes the matching metal lens hood and cap.
Olympus Press Release
Special-edition M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12mm 1:2.0
Collectors will be counting down the days to the launch of this limited-edition designer piece that comes as a kit with a matching lens hood and cap – all in classic black. With its wide-angle capacity and fast aperture, the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12mm 1:2.0 lens performs superbly in low-light and snapshot situations where a flash or tripod would be inappropriate – and is of course ideal for capturing high-quality landscapes and other broad shots As an Olympus system lens, it also benefits from the Image Stabilisation (IS) built into every new Olympus camera. Most rival wide-angle lenses don’t come with stabilisation technology, which can leave you susceptible to shake and blurring with cameras that don’t have built-in IS of their own.
The special-edition M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12mm 1:2.0 Street Photography lens will retail for £849, which includes the matching metal lens hood and cap.
