About this deal

With the 12-40mm lens attached to an Olympus OM-D E-M1 body, focusing is extremely quick in most situations. As M4/3 matured though, the high end of the system grew aspirations to move into the pro space, with cameras like Olympus's OM-D range and Panasonic's GH models offering top-end features and build quality to match the best SLRs. First impressions were incredibly positive - the lens has a reassuring weight to it, probably due to the fact that almost every surface you touch is proper metal, a beautifully machined black aluminium finish. As with most m4/3 lenses these days, the assumption is that you're going to be shooting JPEGs and using in-camera correction, or using a raw convertor that has lens corrections. Pro lens itself is very well built, fully living up to the PRO designation that Olympus have given it.

The only plastic element is the inner part of the lens that sticks out when increasing the focal length.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. lеnѕ іѕ аlѕо buіlt tо оffеr rеlіаblе wеаthеr rеѕіѕtаnсе wіth аn ІР53 duѕtрrооf аnd ѕрlаѕhрrооf rаtіng, аѕ wеll аѕ bеіng frееzерrооf dоwn tо -10°С.

Focusing is lightning fast in S-AF and continuous focusing on the E-M1 feels better than it does with some of the primes, though still not up to the standards of the mid-to-high end Nikons. The filter thread does not rotate on focus, which is great news for anyone intending to use a polariser or ND grads on the lens.You can upload: image, audio, video, document, spreadsheet, interactive, text, archive, code, other. You can program it to toggle adjustments such as white balance or RAW, but it can also be set as an AF-stop button. Other highlights include a manual focus clutch mechanism, and a customisable L-Fn button that can be used to temporarily suspend continuous auto focus when something suddenly comes between the lens and your intended subject while recording video with your camera. In the case of that body the highest results, reached by the best fixed focus lenses, amount to about 80 lpmm. 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.
