OlympusOlympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-50mm F3.5-6.3 EZ lens : Olympus adds a new Micro Four Thirds lens to its powerful Olympus PEN lens line-up. The Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-50mm F3.5-6.3 EZ (35mm equivalent 24-100mm) delivers smooth, quiet zooming that gives you versatility, portability and maximizes the performance of your Olympus PEN system camera. The new Olympus PEN lens has a zoom ratio of approximately 4.2x, allowing digital photographers to capture anything from detailed, wide-angle group photos to medium telephoto-range pictures so you can get up close and personal for intimate portraits of children and pets - even indoors.

The digital photographer can control the zooming speed by turning the barrel - slowly for drama, quickly for performance, or at an intermediate rate. Manual zooming is also available for those looking to take full control. In macro mode, which can be set by pushing the zoom ring forward while depressing the macro button on the side of the new Olympus PEN lens, focusing is possible between 8 and 20-inches for close-up shooting with a maximum image magnification of 0.72X. The L-Fn (Lens Function) button suspends the auto-focusing operation temporarily to avoid unintended focusing on obstacles that appear suddenly between the Olympus PEN camera and the subject.

New Olympus PEN lens perfect for HD video recording
Perfect for brilliant photos and high-definition video recording, the Movie & Still Compatible (MSC) M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-50mm F3.5-6.3 EZ has also been enhanced with a linear motor that drives smooth and quiet auto-focusing for stress-free recording. New lens elements and glass materials ensure the clearest possible imaging performance, and the proven dust and splash-proof mechanism originally featured in the Four Thirds Super High Grade series lenses is now incorporated for the first time in a Micro Four Thirds System lens. Multiple sealing rings, fitted throughout the lens body, prevent water splashes and dust from penetrating, making the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-50mm f3.5-6.3 EZ a versatile zoom lens for the toughest conditions.
