Product Overview

Olympus M.Zuiko ED 12-50mm F3.5-6.3 EZ is a standard zoom lens for Micro Four Thirds-mount. It covers the MFT image circle. Introduced by Olympus in 2011, it has 10 elements in 9 groups.
Photographers will be pleased by the fact that the lens is internally-zooming, meaning that the barrel does not extend when the focal length is changed. It is further aided by power zoom, making it a good option for video works. For incremental weathers, Olympus is kind enough to include weather sealing.
A standard zoom lens with moderate aperture, the M.Zuiko ED 12-50mm F3.5-6.3 EZ is more of a "volume seller" than a premium option. Still, some photographers may find the results "good enough".
