A wide-angle prime lens for Micro Four Thirds cameras

Landscape and Architecture photography are just two of the areas that this Olympus 12mm f2 lens excels at, thanks to the ultra-wide-angle focal length, a 24mm equivalent in 35mm terms. With this wide angle of view on offer, you will never find yourself standing back desperately trying to fit more of the scene within the frame. Vast and open landscapes are easy to compose with this lens, as well as interiors that find you shooting in cramped spaces.

Letting in more light to keep you shooting longer
The bright f2 maximum aperture of the 12mm f2 lens allows for handheld shooting in darker conditions, as well as producing a shallow depth of field in your photographs. The out of focus areas produced are smooth and natural in appearance, thanks to the seven-blade rounded aperture diaphragm. Whether you are travelling in a foreign country discovering new places as the sun is setting or exploring atmospheric interiors, the Olympus 12mm f2 lens lets in enough light for you to continue creating sharp photographs.

Autofocus that is equipped for stills, as well as video
The wide-angle of view on offer is not just suited to photography, but also leads to gripping cinematic experiences. There are many things that you may encounter in your life that can only be captured through video and thankfully the 12mm f2 lens is prepared to help you on this journey too, with an autofocus motor that is Movie and Stills compatible. Smooth, silent and fast, the AF of this lens will have no trouble snapping your subjects into focus and will perform discretely enough to go unnoticed.
