Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-40mm F2.8 PRO lens review: Pro worthy performer

By Kevin Carter - Thursday November 14 2013

Lens Review
Introduction | Olympus best zoom measured on OM-D E-M5 | Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-40mm F2.8 PRO lens performance | Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-40mm F2.8 vs Panasonic LUMIX G X VARIO 12-35mm / F2.8 ASPH | Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-40mm F2.8 PRO vs Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 EX DC OS HSM vs Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM | Conclusion

The new M.Zuiko Digital Pro zoom achieves a DxOMark lens score of 19 points on the 16-Mpix OM-D E-M5, putting ahead of every other MFT zoom available with the exception of the Panasonic 12-35mm. It has good overall sharpness, and vignetting and chromatic aberration are both well controlled in a lens like this. However, distortion is higher than expected over the 12mm to 18mm focal lengths.
