Olympus ZD 12-60mm f/2.8-4.0 SWD zoom lens
- one of the 1st SWD AF lenses for Olympus Four Thirds dSLR system
- perhaps the BEST standard zoom for Four Thirds (and perhaps better than available for any dSLR) giving versatility and AF speed, a 5x zoom while still retaining excellent resolution comparable to the Olympus ZD 11-22mm f/2.8-3.5 wide angle zoom lens and Olympus ZD 14-54mm f/2.8-3.5 II zoom lens at the expense of a little more barrel distortion at the wide end.
- some complex distortion at wide angle (thus if doing architecture, consider the Olympus ZD 11-22mm f/2.8-3.5 wide angle zoom lens instead) but overall a superb lens.
- would combine very well with:
- AF fault identified in those with serial numbers between 230005416 and 230010688 - see free inspection & repair
- 12-60mm focal length = 24-120mm field of view coverage in 35mm terms
- f/2.8 (wide) - f/4.0 (tele) to f/22
- 14 Elements in 10 Groups. Super ED Lens, 2 ED lenses, Aspherical ED lens and 2 Aspherical lenses
- close focus 0.25m = 0.28x macro
- 7 circular blades
- 72mm filter
- compatible with teleconverters and extension tubes
