M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-50mm f/3.5-6.3 EZ

Olympus have released a new standard zoom to be used with their PEN cameras. The M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-50mm f/3.5 - 6.3 EZ lens features an electromagnetic zoom mechanism that powers the lens on its own, variable zoom speed and quick auto focus. You can also suspend autofocus altogether and switch to the manual zoom ring.

The new lens delivers 4.2x standard magnification and in Macro mode, the lens offers 0.72x magnification at 20 to 50cm.

Less familiar is the new L-Fn button (a first on a PEN lens), which prevents the camera focussing on the wrong subject by mistake.

The M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-50mm f/3.5-6.3 EZ will sell separately and as part of a kit with one of the three newest PEN cameras: the PEN Lite (EPL3), PEN Mini (E-PM1) and the flagship PEN E-P3. A matching protection filter, lens case and hood are also available.

It goes on sale from end of January 2012, for £349.99.

It's a shame that, for the money, it is such a slow lens: f 6.3 at 100 mm equivalent? Sad
