Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-200mm F3.5-6.3 Lens Review

Olympus 12-200mm F3.5-6.3 lens review

Robin Wong tested the newly announced Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-200mm F3.5-6.3 lens (first pre-order at  B&H)  and made such concludes:

“I do think that the Olympus 12-200mm is quite an interesting lens. While the lens may not give you the typical Olympus razor sharp image output at the longer end, it performs very well in the 12-100mm zoom range. If you are looking for absolute sharpness, there are PRO grade lenses with superior optics to consider, as well as high quality prime lenses from Olympus or Panasonic. What impressed me most was the flare control of the lens and the fact that despite such a massive zoom range, Olympus managed to keep the size and weight down to a comfortable level. Weather-sealing is a welcome bonus. As long as you do not shoot constantly in dim light, I see no reason the 12-200mm cannot deliver satisfactory results…”
