Users will experience excellent depictive performance across the entire focal length from wide-angle to telephoto, making it the perfect travel companion, packing high-speed and high-precision autofocus into an amazingly compact, lightweight form. The M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-200mm F3.5-6.3 lens features a dustproof and splashproof construction, making this lens durable enough to withstand the toughest shooting conditions, especially when paired with a weathersealed Olympus OM-D® camera body.
When shooting wide, the closest focusing distance is approximately 22cm (approximately 10cm from the end of the lens) from the main subject for capturing the subject along with an expansive background. When shooting telephoto, the maximum magnification of 0.46x (35mm equivalent) for close-up photography and for significant background defocusing. This do-it-all lens is perfect for close-ups of children's expressions, indoor and outdoor situations and a variety of other subjects.
The M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-200mm F3.5-6.3 lens features the same reliable dustproof and splashproof performance as the M.Zuiko PRO lens series. When combined with a dustproof and splashproof camera2, it can function in the most punishing of environments.
This lens is equipped with the MSC (Movie and Still Compatible) mechanism, an advanced inner focusing mechanism providing fast, smooth, quiet and accurate auto-focusing, ideal for video shooters. Users will enjoy a short shooting time lag, so split-second photo opportunities are not missed. Amazingly high-speed, precise autofocus performance on this high-magnification zoom lens will provide comfortable, fun shooting.
ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating, Olympus' cutting-edge thin-coating technology, cultivated from multilayer film disposition technology used in microscopes, has been applied to the M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-200mm F3.5-6.3 lens to drastically reduce ghosts and flares, contributing to a clear, high-contrast image.
16.6X ZOOM FOR ULTIMATE VERSATILITY

COMPACT & LIGHTWEIGHT
At just under 4 inches collapsed and weighing just over 1 pound, this lens is truly an engineering marvel. When combined with a weathersealed OM-D body, overall system weight is significantly less than most equivalent mirrorless and SLR systems. You'll never hesitate to bring the 12-200mm F3.5-6.3 lens with you, so you're always ready to capture an amazing shot.
DUSTPROOF & SPLASHPROOF CONSTRUCTION

An MSC (Movie & Still Compatible) mechanism means this lens is just as quiet as it is fast, making it an ideal choice for still photographers and video shooters alike.
EXCELLENCE IN OPTICS
The 12-200mm F3.5-6.3's 16 elements in 11 groups consist of cutting-edge lens elements pioneered by Olympus. Extra-low dispersion glass combined with ZERO Coating keeps aberrations, ghosts and flares to a minimum, while an advanced optical design virtually eliminates breathing, maintaining your angle of view through the entire focusing range.
CLOSE FOCUSING PERFORMANCE
The 12-200mm F3.5-6.3 can focus as close as 10cm from the end of the lens at the widest focal length, allowing you to get close to your subject while still showing expansive backgrounds. When shooting at the telephoto end, a 50cm working distance will give you beautifully defocused backgrounds for professional looking portraits.
