OM-D E-M5 Mark III 12‑45mm F4 PRO kit

One compact and lightweight lens for many possibilities

The optical configuration of the M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-45mm F4.0 PRO lens is inherited from the ED 12-40mm F2.8 PRO lens, which is well recognized for its high-quality standards. Effective placement of special lenses in the
M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-45mm F4.0 PRO lens allows for the world’s most compact, lightweight design*, covering a focal length from wide angle 24mm to telephoto 90mm (35mm equivalent). A small and lightweight focusing lens enables high-speed, precise AF for any subject. Aspherical lenses and ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating drastically reduce aberrations, ghosts, and flares for sharp, high-definition image quality. Suppressing loss of light at the edges of images makes it possible to obtaina bright, clear depictive performance over the entire image.

Superb macro capabilities

The M.Zuiko ED 12-45 mm F4.0 PRO is also suitable for macro photography with a maximum magnification of 0.25x (0.5x 35mm equivalent) across theentire zoom range. The closest focusing distance is 12 cm at the wide-angleend, and 23 cm at the telephoto end. Diverse macro effects are possible, such as Focus Stacking****, which generates a single image in the camerawith a large depth of field in focus from the foreground to the background.

The perfect match

The new flexible standard zoom lens is the solution for all those who want to achieve maximum performance with as little equipment as possible. It fits perfectly to the OM-D E-M5 Mark III, which is just as flexible, compact and light. It features a weather-sealed construction, high-performance autofocus capabilities and a powerful image stabilization system, along with versatile shooting features to deliver brilliant image quality and an extensive array of creative options for photographers and filmmakers.
