Olympus Launches a Powerful Zoom Lens for Mirrorless Cameras

Olympus launches a powerful zoom lense with 16.6x magnification for mirrorless cameras. 

The M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-200mm F3.5-6.3 is a 16.6x high-magnification zoom lens that offers a superb optical design with excellent depictive performance across the entire focal length from wide angle to telephoto. Packing a high-speed and high-precision autofocus (AF) into an amazingly compact and lightweight form with a dust-, splash- and freeze proof design, this versatile lens is ideal for landscape, street and portraits.

Zoom performance


With 16.6x magnification, the M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-200mm F3.5-6.3 delivers the most powerful zoom of all lenses for mirrorless cameras so far. Covering a focal length of 12-200mm (35mm equivalent: 24-400mm) from wide angle to telephoto while maintaining the compact and lightweight design Olympus is renowned for, this lens is ideal for a variety of different shooting situations. The reliable dust-, splash- and freezeproof construction known from the M.Zuiko PRO series adds even more versatility by allowing users to shoot under any weather condition.



Optical lense design


To thoroughly suppress chromatic aberrations and distortions across the entire zoom range while maintaining a compact lens design, Olympus engineers have given special attention to the arrangement of special optics including Super ED and aspherical lenses. ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating drastically reduces ghosts and flares. Furthermore, the ED 12-200mm F3.5-6.3 is equipped with the MSC (Movie and Still Compatible) focus mechanism that uses an inner focus system which moves a single lightweight lens for focusing. This allows for high-speed AF performance in order not to miss split-second photo opportunities.

Availability & pricing


The new M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-200mm F3.5-6.3 will be available from late March 2019 at a price of £799.99.
