About the lens
The new M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-100mm F4.0 IS PRO is the first high-magnification 8.3x zoom lens with powerful image stabilization in the M.Zuiko PRO category. This compact, lightweight, high-performance, high-magnification professional zoom lens features a dustproof, splashproof and freezeproof (-10°) construction along with an image stabilization mechanism. When combined with a compatible camera body, the in-body 5-axis sync IS is enhanced, enabling the world's most powerful 6.5 shutter speed steps of compensation performance, expanding the range of hand-held shooting scenes.
Concurrently announced with the Olympus mZD 25mm PRO F1.2, which I am covering on the other review thread here. With the addition of these 2 lenses, there are total 7 Pro lenses from Olympus.
Will be covering the following areas in the review, sharpness (across the apertures and at varying focal lengths), 5 axis sync IS with Pen F, handling, starburst, and certainly lots of images (mainly with EPL8).
Here's a few images of the lens.
