By Updated on

Having already given you a taster of the new Olympus M. Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO Lens, we thought you might want to see how it performs when given more time to explore all its features because last time it was rushed. As always, the new Pro lens has been mounted to the new OMD EM1, which is weather-resistant to help improve the overall experience.

The Olympus lens review of the new M. Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO covers all you need to know because the video was created by Blunty. We first get an intro about the lens, which as some of you already know is the first Pro lens from Olympus and has a 12-40mm constant aperture f/2.8 zoom.

Even though this is just the first in a new line of Pro lenses from Olympus, Blunty suggests it could be the one that lives on the OMD EM1 most or all of the time because it is so flexible.
