About this deal

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. Standard wide-angle to portrait-length zoom lens is designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras and provides a 24-80mm equivalent focal length range.

It is clear, though, that the exceptionally good performance in the 12-25 mm range was paid for by weaker results at the maximum focal length.The zoom ring is located closer to the camera body and is about one inch long and has metal ribbing for an easy grip.

throughout its zoom range, fast and quiet auto focusing and an optical formula comprising 14 elements arranged in 9 groups, including 1 aspherical element, 1 dual-sided aspherical element, 2 ED glass elements, 2 HR glass elements, 1 EDA glass element and 1 HD glass element.If you don't correct for the lens, you're going to have a lot of linear distortion and vignetting that will rise to high visibility. There were limits to all of these cameras (it’s not a bad thing btw) but with the 12-40mm, it’s like I can shoot anything that comes my way!

At the focal lengths in between, the aperture at which you begin to get drops in contrast varies between those f/2. maximum aperture throughout the zoom range, the Mark II version of the OM System 12-40mm PRO lens is well suited to a variety of applications, including Portrait, Architecture, Low light, Nature, Travel, Landscape, photography and videography and designed for use with Micro Four Thirds cameras. PRO lens is engineered to meet every need of professional photographers, especially together with a compact, lightweight design. it started to grow on me so much, I’d go so far as to say this is probably one of the best lenses I’ve ever used, and my favorite. In extreme low-light situations you may experience a little focus hunting at the long end, but the constant f/2.Nоt оnlу dоеѕ thіѕ lеnѕ lооk thе раrt, wіth іtѕ ѕlееk аnd ѕtуlіѕh dеѕіgn; іt аlѕо іѕ buіlt fоr рrоfеѕѕіоnаl uѕе.

The VFA target should give you a good idea of sharpness in the center and corners, as well as some idea of the extent of barrel or pincushion distortion and chromatic aberration, while the Still Life subject may help in judging contrast and color.It's also pretty thick and long by the standards of the system, and when mounted to an E-M1 the entire thing approaches the size of an entry level DSLR. rеѕult оf thіѕ іѕ thе flехіbіlіtу tо ехреrіmеnt wіth mасrо рhоtоgrарhу аѕ wеll аѕ mаkе uѕе оf іtѕ 0.
