Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-100mm f/4 IS PRO Lens

Spanning an impressive wide to telephoto range, the M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-100mm f/4 IS PRO Lens from Olympus is a 24-200mm equivalent zoom designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. Characterized by its f/4 constant maximum aperture, this lens offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range to suit both stills and video shooting. Its optical design incorporates a slew of low dispersion and aspherical elements in order to reduce both chromatic and spherical aberrations, and both a ZERO coating and a Z Coating Nano have been applied to greatly reduce lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast.

Benefitting handling the expansive zoom range is an optical image stabilization system that works in conjunction with select cameras' 5-axis image stabilization to form Sync IS, which compensates for up to 6.5 stops of camera shake. A Movie & Still Compatible (MSC) high-speed imager AF system provides quick, accurate, and quiet focusing performance well-suited to both photo and video applications, and a manual focus clutch permits fast changing to MF for more precise control. Additionally, a lens function button is featured on the side of the barrel for direct settings adjustment, and the lens also features a weather-sealed construction for use in trying environmental conditions.

Spanning a wide-angle to telephoto range, this 12-100mm zoom is designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras and provides a 24-200mm equivalent focal length range.
Constant f/4 maximum aperture provides consistent illumination throughout the zoom range to benefit both stills and video applications.
One double-sided aspherical element and three aspherical elements are featured in the optical design to limit spherical aberrations for improved sharpness with reduced distortion. Additionally, five extra-low dispersion elements, two Super HR (high-refractive index) elements, and one HR element are also used to control chromatic aberrations and color fringing for greater clarity and color fidelity.
Both a ZERO Coating and a Z Coating Nano are applied to individual lens elements to noticeable reduce surface reflections and prevent lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color neutrality in strong lighting conditions.
Lens-based image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake to benefit shooting handheld with this lens in difficult lighting conditions. Additionally, this lens supports Synchronized IS, which pairs the optical IS system with select Olympus cameras' 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilization to control up to 6.5 stops of camera shake.
A MSC autofocus system provides quick, quiet, and precise focusing performance to benefit both still photo shooting and movie recording. Additionally, an MF clutch is used for fast changing to manual focus for more precise control.
Weather-sealed construction guards the lens against dust and moisture for working in harsh environments.
Circular seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

Olympus HLD-9 Power Battery Grip

Offering a more comfortable grip along with extended battery life, the HLD-9 Power Battery Grip is dedicated to the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II mirrorless camera. Featuring a well-matched physical design, this battery grip duplicates the control set of the camera body for more intuitive settings adjustment when shooting in the vertical orientation, and includes a secondary front dial, shutter button, rear dial, two function buttons, a vertical shooting lock, an OK button, and an arrow pad. The grip also matches the durable construction of the camera body, and is dust, splash, and freezeproof to support shooting in trying environmental conditions. Beyond a more ergonomic and intuitive means for handling the camera, this grip also supports the use of an additional BLH-1 lithium-ion battery to effectively double the battery life while shooting. Alternatively, an AC-5 AC Adapter can also be paired with the battery grip for virtually indefinite power via 100-240 VAC.

Olympus E-M1 Mark II Reviews

Love this camera!

By Allan

Fits my hand perfectly, it's relatively small and light. It does everything I need it to do, but is, at the moment, $500 cheaper than the Mark III version. I've sold off my EM5 and E-M1 Mark I and have 2 Mark IIs now, and that will probably take care of me for at least 5 years!

An excellent Micro 4/3 camera

By Paul
Rated 5 out of 5

I recently purchased an Olympus E-M1 Mark II camera to replace my old E-M10 Mark II. I chose the Mark II over the newer Mark III because I don't need any of the additional features in the newer model. Key Specifications: 20MP Live MOS sensor 5-axis in-body image stabilization system 121-pt hybrid AF system 60 fps burst shooting (18 fps with C-AF) Fully articulating 3 LCD display High-res electronic viewfinder Cinema (DCI) and UHD 4K video 50MP High-Res Shot mode Weather-sealed body USB 3 (Type-C) Autofocusing even in low light is very good, and I was able to focus down past -4 EVs, with an f/2.8 lens. The Olympus E-M1 II has a 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilization system, which enables me to take hand-held images with my longer lenses. The Olympus E-M1 Mark II is fully weather-sealed against dust, moisture and freezing temperatures. I tend to shoot in all weather conditions, which is probably the reason my old E-M10 failed. The numerous controls and buttons spread around the body remain large and easy to operate even when wearing thin gloves. I think Olympus understands that a small camera doesn't necessarily need to have small controls. The side-mounted tilt/swivel touchscreen is very useful with odd shooting angles. The articulated design also provides the benefit of entirely flipping around, which provides protection against bumps, smudges or scratches on the large LCD touch screen. The image quality of the Olympus E-M1 Mark II is excellent, showing a lot of sharp, fine detail. Maybe even superior to my old camera. The Olympus lenses also help with image quality. I uploaded an image taken with the OM-D E-M1 Mark II. In conclusion: anyone who wants a lightweight camera with great clarity, lots of great features, high-speed shooting and an advanced AF system this is the camera of choice. I highly recommend the Olympus E-M1 Mark II camera.

My second EM-1 II for back-up

By Gary

The EM-1 II is a marvelous camera despite being 5 years old. I wanted to have a 2nd available as I like the camera so well. It handles superbly and works for me as a lightweight hiking-based landscape and nature photography camera, where I use the 12-40 or 12-45 and the Panasonic 35-100 F2.8 lenses and also sometimes the 8mm F1.8 FE. This very light suite of lenses provides excellent performance but I am now going to own also the Panasonic 50-200 for use in photographing wildlife while hiking and backpacking. Because of very good stabilization I carry no tripod. I use the in camera focus stacking feature very often as I make many botanical images of vascular plants and bryophytes mosses). Because of the ease of focus stacking I find my images of mosses are significantly better than almost all I find on the internet and at professional technical sources. For stacked macro images (60mm), which are usually closer to home, I do use a tripod. I also shoot birds and bees & butterflies where the EM-1 II works very well in S-AF; however the EM-1X is superior for those creatures.

Fast, outrageous IBIS, and looks good too. An upgrade from an EM10 Mki (which I had been using for 7 years and it still works), I can see the difference in performance in low light and hand held shots.

Great little camera

By James
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-07-11

I purchased this camera because Denise Ippolito uses it to photograph flowers. The menus are a little complex, but the camera has some really useful features, such as a kind of gyroscope that ensures a perfectly parallel shot, a valuable asset for micro photography. I found it enjoyable for photographing flowers along with the Voigtlander Nokton 42.5mm f/0.95 Micro Four Thirds Lens - a dynamite combination. I've also ordered an OLYMPUS M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-40MM F/2.8 PRO LENS for it, which Tony Northrup has recommended, but I haven't received it yet. Altogether, I'm very happy with this little camera.

The E-M1 Mark II is a very impressive up-grade from my E-M1

I have been very impressed and pleased with my E-M1, which I have had since 2013, but it didn't have features I wanted. The E-M1 Mark III had more than I needed. The E-M1 Mark II is spot on, and the price at B&H was very reasonable. I am very impressed with the new camera, and highly recommend it.

I was looking for a second body for street shooting as I have been using the miii for over a year. When doing a comparison there was nothing the mii could not do that I would use in my particular shooting as I am not into birding or action photography. The body delivers the promise of. m 4/3 , light to carry, comfortable in your hands, logical customizable controls and excellent IBS. Having been an Oly user for 15 years, I find their menus mostly sensible. At under $1000 the mii surrenders very little to the miii. If you are into sports or birding the mx1 is compelling otherwise putting your savings in the glass you will find amazing full featured m 4/3 that delivers the Olympus promise of great Optical performance in compact, lightweight package.

question

Hello, i was wandering if a minimum shutter speed can be set while in auto ISO and if so what are the limits (lower and upper)? Thanks
Asked by: Paul L.
There are actually two different areas to set the lowest shutter speed, one in Auto ISO and the other when using flash. Menu E1 ISO-Auto Set allows you to set the Auto ISO range (200-6400) and the Lowest S/S Setting (Auto/off or selectable from 30 to 1/8000) for P and Av modes. The camera will keep your specified minimum shutter speed up to your max specified ISO, but once there it will decrease the shutter speed to obtain the correct exposure. So the max ISO is a hard limit and the shutter speed is more of a soft limit.The second place you can set this is on the Flash menu (F) where you can choose the X-sync (1/60 - 1/250) and the slow (lowest s/s) limit when using flash (30 to 1/250).

Does the F.O.V. remain the same regardless of the video resolution chosen? I know Panasonic uses a sensor crop/window that magnifies the F.O.V. a bit when 1080 is recorded on a 4k chip. (GH4). My concern is for wide lens choice.
Asked by: Vincent
I don’t really know. Have only shot 1080 video, not 4k. For 1080 the field of view remains as it does when shooting stills.

question

I have the M5 Mark II. Can I use the same batteries if I purchase the M1? I'm assuming all my Zuiko lenses are compatible.
Asked by: Joan
The Olympus BLN-1 Rechargeable Lithium-ion Battery is compatible for use with both the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera and the original Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera. It is not compatible with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera, which uses the Olympus BLH-1 Lithium-Ion Battery.All Olympus M.Zuiko lenses or third-party lenses designed for the Micro Four Thirds lens mount would equally be compatible with the original Olympus OM-D E-M1, the OM-D E-M1 Mark II, and the OM-D E-M5 Mark II Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Cameras.
