About this deal

Pro is actually a good macro lens, offering a minimum focusing distance of 20cm and a maximum magnification of 0. Why not sign up to our newsletter and receive info on exclusive offers each week that are not available to the public. First, this is about the best m4/3 lens I've tested to date in its center performance, and pretty much across the board in both focal length and aperture.

The 12-40 balances really nicely on the E-M1, although on the smaller OM-Ds and PENs I'd recommend an additional grip piece to counter the front heaviness. As a side note, I wouldn’t know how the lens performs on other mu43 cameras, keep in mind in the review that I shoot it with the PEN F, and it’s a killer combo, so it’s hard for me to know exactly when camera ends and lens starts. This lens will help you capture stunning close-up shots of insects, leaves and flowers and other small objects. The 12-40mm focal range translates to a 24-80mm field of view in 35mm terms, and with the constant ƒ/2.

E-M1, 1/1250, f/ 8, ISO 200 E-M1, 1/25, f/ 4, ISO 400 E-M1, 1/5, f/ 4, ISO 800 E-M1, 1/15, f/ 4, ISO 800 E-M1, 1/5, f/ 5.

The lens also features ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating, thoroughly eliminating ghosts and flares for clear depictive performance even in difficult conditions such as backlit scenes. Nottinghamshire based creative, with a focus on branding, digital and print design alongside photography. For sure there is no more stealth factor, as the lens is pretty big, and there are no lens markings for hyperfocal focusing or zone focusing, but there are a few advantages.I think it's a very nice option to have and I can imagine that many photographers don't need an extra macro lens. It doesn't cost you anything extra when you use these links, but it does support the site, helping keep ePHOTOzine free to use, thank you. The focus ring has a clutch mechanism that allows you to rapidly switch to manual focus, something seen on the 12mm and also on some Fuji XF lenses.

Engineered to meet every need of professional photographers, especially together with a compact, lightweight design for stress-free shooting even in harsh weather conditions.

It’s the perfect balance of imaging power and portability so you’ll be able to take your best shots. The result is a compact, lightweight focusing unit that enables 50fps sequential shooting while letting you shoot stills and movies with speed and accuracy.
