Key Features

  • High Quality Optics

    Bright F/2.8
    With a bright, fast F2.8 aperture you’ll be able to achieve a shallow depth of field with exceptional sharpness even in low light. It’s perfect for shooting landscapes, wildlife, people and even macro photography without a tripod. It’s one lens you can use in a variety of environments that delivers outstanding image quality every time.
    14 Elements in 9 Groups
    There’s lots of world-class glass inside. You’ll find 14 elements configured in 9 groups. There’s EDA. DSA, HD, HR. ED and x4 aspherical lenses that are all configured to keep your images free from any aberrations and flares that traditionally come from zooming. Your images will be high resolution from the center to the edges.

    Zero Coating
    Besides being built with some of the world’s finest glass, we apply an advanced coating that suppresses ghosting and flares.

    Flourine Coating
    When your lens gets wet, you need to wipe it clean before taking the next shot. A fluorine coating lets you get rid of the water quickly. One wipe and its gone. No streaking or waterdrops left behind. You’ll clean your lens quickly and more efficiently so you’ll get back to shooting faster.
  • Built to Overcome

    IP Dustproof & Splashproof
    Sometimes you have to shoot in less than perfect conditions. You could use a rain jacket and carry around extra gear. Or shoot with our IP53-rated lens and not worry about the conditions. It’s splashproof and dustproof. You can also use it in below freezing temperatures down to 14°F/ -10°C. That’s because its protected by an advanced system of seals that keeps you working no matter how harsh it gets out there.

    Portable Performance
    Big, bulky lenses are a pain to lug around. That’s why the OM System is one of the most portable in the world. The idea is that with less weight and bulk you’ll be able to work at your best. The 12-40mm lens fits right in. It weighs only 13.4 ounces — 50% lighter than other full-frame mirrorless SLR camera lenses — with a 2.4 inch diameter. That means it’s lightweight and fits comfortably in the palm of your hand. It’s the perfect balance of imaging power and portability so you’ll be able to take your best shots.

    Designed for You
    If you do a lot of shooting outdoors, you’ll appreciate that it’s built to be tough and durable. It features all-metal construction so it can handle plenty of bumps and jolts. Just holding it in your hand conveys exceptional quality, craftsmanship and attention to detail. It was made with the very latest manufacturing technologies that works with pinpoint precision so you can work at your best.

    Manual Focus Clutch
    Switching between auto and manual focus is effortless. Just pull the focus ring towards you for manual and away from you to go back to auto. It’ll help you keep your eye on the subject and not on your camera.

    Function Button
    If you have a function specific to the way you shoot like Magnify, Peaking or Digital Teleconverter, you can assign one of them to a button on the lens barrel and access it instantly. If you don’t assign it a function, use it to pause autofocus.
  • Agile Shooting

    Get Close
    This lens will help you capture stunning close-up shots of insects, leaves and flowers and other small objects. Get as close as 7.8 inches to your subject with a maximum shooting magnification of 0.6x (35mm equivalent). You’ll have all the imaging power you need to raise your macro photography to new heights.

    Fast & High Precision AF
    The 12-40mm features the latest in optical design technology to deliver fast and precise focusing. It uses a MSC (Movie and Still Compatible) mechanism to silently and quickly drive the focusing lenses. The result is a compact, lightweight focusing unit that enables 50fps sequential shooting while letting you shoot stills and movies with speed and accuracy.

    Compatible with Focus Stacking
    Focus Stacking helps you capture artistic macro shots and beautiful landscape photos. When paired with a compatible camera, you’ll be able take shots with deep focus from foreground to background through creating a composite image by combining multiple shots with different focus.
