Olympus Announces Compact 12-45mm f/4 Pro Lens

Along with the E-M1 Mark III, Olympus has today announced the M.Zuiko ED 12-45mm f/4 Pro lens. It is a very versatile lens since it covers the same focal range a full-frame 24-90mm lens would cover. It’s not your typical standard zoom lens, however, as it can focus down to just 4.7 inches (12 cm) and offers a maximum magnification of 0.5x.

Olympus 12-45mm f/4 Pro features a premium finish and weather resistance while remaining extremely compact. It’s 2.8 inches (70mm) long and weighs only 9 ounces (254 grams). The lens has a total of 12 elements, as well as a ZERO coating that reduces flare and ghosting.

The lens will be available in April at a retail price of $649.
