Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12mm f/2 Lens (Silver)

The Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12mm f/2 Lens is a fast and super bright ultra-wide prime lens with a 35mm equivalent of 24mm for Micro Four Thirds shooters. The 12mm benefits from an aperture range of f/2-22 and utilise DSA, aspherical, ED, and Super HR elements to control aberrations for greater clarity and colour accuracy. Additionally, the lens features a seven-blade circular diaphragm for pleasing out-of-focus elements. The lens also features full metal construction for durability.

  • Micro Four Thirds System
  • 24mm (35mm Equivalent)
  • Aperture Range: f/2 to f/22
  • Two Aspherical Elements

This lens has a snap ring enables photographers to pan focus with a distance indicator and the 12mm wide-angle makes it ideal for shooting high-quality, dramatic landscapes, interior architecture, portraits and street scenes in low-light conditions.

This high-speed, single-focal-length, wide-angle lens is ideal for shooting high-quality, dramatic landscapes and street scenes in low-light conditions. It has a beautiful full-metal body and a snap ring that enables photographers to pan focus with a distance indicator.

Flexible focusing system

One of the most interesting features of this lens is the flexibility of its focusing system. While this is a so-called “focus-by-wire” lens – which means the movement of the lenses focusing elements is controlled by an electric autofocus motor instead of a mechanical linkage – it offers two distinct manual focusing options. Choosing is as easy as moving the snap focus ring that activates the lens’s Manual Focus Clutch mechanism.

Movie & still compatible mechanism


One of this lens’s most interesting features is the unique-to-Olympus Movie & Still Compatible mechanism, or MSC. This technology provides amazingly fast – and nearly silent – autofocus operation. You’ll really notice the benefit when you playback your HD video and the only thing you hear is the ambient background noise in the scene you were filming; what you won’t hear is the sound of the lens moving as it changes focus. This lens is perfect for tracking action.

This is a lens to grow with

The 12mm wide-angle is a great choice for shooting portraits, low-light landscapes and interior architecture. It’s also a lens you can grow with; as your skills improve you can use the manual focus options to take control and set up your shots just the way you want them.
