Olympus launches Pro travel lens

Olympus 12-100mm

One of the biggest draws of the compact system format is the small compact size and weight. Realising this Olympus has produced a Pro lens at Photokina 2016 that photographers can carry and use professionally on their travels.

The new 12-100mm offers an 8.3x zoom. The Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-100mm 1:4.0 IS PRO (35mm equivalent: 24-200mm) this range covers wide to zoom and makes it an ideal option to keep on your camera as you travel.

Used at the full extent of the zoom you can take advantage of the  Sync IS system which is capable of delivering up to 6.5 EV steps compensation.

When travelling you can never trust the weather and this lens joins Olympus’s line of dust, splash and freezeproof lenses alongside the rest of the flagship M.ZUIKO Pro series.

As well as giving you a decent wide and zoom lens it also has a minimum working distance of 1.5cm to ensure extreme close-up performance.

The Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-100mm 1:4.0 IS PRO will retail for £1099.99.
