Description

The new M. ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-40 mm 1:2.8 is designed to meet the needs of professional photographers in every respect. It is the first lens in the new PRO category. Combined with the OM-D, the user can look forward to incredibly fast AF performance. With an aperture of 1:2.8 over the entire focal length range (24-80 mm with a 35 mm camera), technologies such as MSC and the manual focus mechanism, high-quality image results are guaranteed in a wide variety of photo situations. Protected against dust and splash water, it is always ready when it is needed.

Highlights:

Constant aperture of 1:2,8
Sharp to the edge of the image
Dust- & splash-proof, frost-proof
high-speed autofocus

Camera lens properties

i

Camera lens properties

A camera lens (also known as photographic lens, objective lens or photographic objective) is an optical lens or assembly of lenses used in conjunction with a camera body and mechanism to make images of objects either on photographic film or on other media capable of storing an image chemically or electronically.
While in principle a simple convex lens will suffice, in practice a compound lens made up of a number of optical lens elements is required to correct (as much as possible) the many optical aberrations that arise. Some aberrations will be present in any lens system. It is the job of the lens designer to balance these out and produce a design that is suitable for photographic use and possibly mass production.
A lens may be permanently fixed to a camera, or it may be interchangeable with lenses of different focal lengths, apertures, and other properties.

Lens type

With photo lenses, a further distinction is made according to the angle of view which determines the focal length for a given image format.

Lens mount
i

Lens mount

A lens mount is an interface — mechanical and often also electrical — between a photographic camera body and a lens. It is confined to cameras where the body allows interchangeable lenses, most usually the single lens reflex type or any movie camera of 16 mm or higher gauge. Lens mounts are also used to connect optical components in instrumentation that may not involve a camera, such as the modular components used in optical laboratory prototyping which join via C-mount or T-mount elements.

Focal length
i

Focal length

The focal length of an optical system is a measure of how strongly it converges (focuses) or diverges (diffuses) light. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length.

Focal Length APS-C / DX (35mm film equivalent)
i

Focal Length APS-C / DX (35mm film equivalent)

In photography, the 35 mm equivalent focal length is a measure that indicates the angle of view of a particular combination of a camera lens and film or sensor size. The term is useful because most photographers experienced with interchangeable lenses are most familiar with the 35 mm film format.

Focusing

i

Focusing

In geometrical optics, a focus, also called an image point, is the point where light rays originating from a point on the object converge. Although the focus is conceptually a point, physically the focus has a spatial extent, called the blur circle. This non-ideal focusing may be caused by aberrations of the imaging optics. In the absence of significant aberrations, the smallest possible blur circle is the Airy disc, which is caused by diffraction from the optical system's aperture. Aberrations tend to get worse as the aperture diameter increases, while the Airy circle is smallest for large apertures.

Diaphgragm properties

Diaphgragm properties

In optics, a diaphragm is a thin opaque structure with an opening (aperture) at its center. The role of the diaphragm is to stop the passage of light, except for the light passing through the aperture.

Minimum aperture f/
i

Minimum aperture f/

In optics, an aperture is a hole or an opening through which light travels. More specifically, the aperture of an optical system is the opening that determines the cone angle of a bundle of rays that come to a focus in the image plane. The aperture determines how collimated the admitted rays are, which is of great importance for the appearance at the image plane. If an aperture is narrow, then highly collimated rays are admitted, resulting in a sharp focus at the image plane. If an aperture is wide, then uncollimated rays are admitted, resulting in a sharp focus only for rays with a certain focal length. This means that a wide aperture results in an image that is sharp around what the lens is focusing on and blurred otherwise. The aperture also determines how many of the incoming rays are actually admitted and thus how much light reaches the image plane (the narrower the aperture, the darker the image for a given exposure time).

Edition 01/2016 - An diesem Objektiv gibt es im Prinzip nichts auszusetzen, sodass man hier getrost eine sehr gute Testnote vergeben kann. Das Modell Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40 mm 1:2,8 Pro zeichnet sich durch eine insgesamt sehr gute Bildqualität auf, wobei es sowohl bei der Auflösung, der Verzeichnung als auch beim Radschärfeabfall Bestwerte erzielen kann. Weiterhin ist das Modell bei Falschlicht und den Reflexionen lobenswert, aber auch in der Handhabung leistet sich das Standardzoom keine erkennbaren Schwächen.

ED 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO

Überragendes Pro Objektiv

Um es kurz zu machen: Ob offen oder abgeblendet und bei jedweder Brennweite zeigt dieses wirklich absolut hochwertig verarbeitete Objektiv tadellose Spitzenleistung.
Qualitativ spielt dieses Objektiv in der PRO-Liga und bietet deshalb auch einen grandiosen Gegenwert für's Geld.
Die Bilder werden wirklich WOW und man bekommt ein komplett neues Freudenefühl beim Fotografieren.

Sehr tolles highend allround zoom Objektiv.
Durchgegend 2.8, also sehr lichtstark.
Qualitativ sehr hochwertig, mit einem konfigurierbaren Button, Gegenlichtblende inklusive, und vorallem: Tolle Bildqualität. Sehr scharf, super schneller Autofokus.
Bin sehr zufrieden mit dem Ding :), es ist derzeit das Objektiv welches ich am meisten auf meiner Kamera (Olympus OM-D E-M5) drauf habe.
