  • Olympus 12-40mm f/2.8 Pro M.Zuiko Digital ED

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    Triple proof contraction, Sharpness & microcontrast, Excellent optics, 20cm near focus distance, Manual focus ring
    Size & weigh

    This lens becomes the defining do-it-all-and-anywhere for any m4/3 system. Optically, this is one of the best zoom lenses I’ve ever used. Minimal CA at all apertures & smooth bokeh. It can replace a couple of primes quite easily, especially the Olympus 12mm f/2.0. Perfect travel pairing for my E-M5 (with the top part of the HLD-6 Battery Grip attached for better handling).
