Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 12-60mm 1:2.8-4.0 SWD Lens Review

 

The Digital Zuiko ED 12-60mm 1:2.8-4.0 SWD is Olympus's latest upmarket standard zoom, announced to accompany its E-3 flagship DSLR in October 2007. Firmly placed in what Olympus refers to as its 'Pro' lens lineup, this lens offers a near-ideal focal...

Very useful wideangle to telephoto range ; Superb optics ; Excellent build quality, dust and splash-proof ; Impressive resistance to flare ; Decent macro performance

Pronounced and complex distortion at wideangle ; Slightly sub-par lens hood ; Shadowing of built-in flash at wideangle on smaller bodies ; Expensive

Olympus were in a unique position when entering the digital SLR market; with no legacy 35mm autofocus mount, they were free (or depending upon your point of view, forced) to design a whole new system from scratch. Their chosen solution was to use a...

Pricey, but worth it

 

I bought this to replace my 14-54 because I wanted a wider lens with more reach. It was the only lens I took on an 18 day European trip and never missed any of my other lenses. If I could only have one lens, this would be it, without any doubt!

Excellent focal range, pretty fast (light), fast focus (especially on the E-3 or E-30)

Price, but it's worth it

Awesome Lens

 

I owned an Olympus 18-180mm f3.5 Zuiko Digital Ultra Zoom Lens and was not happy with it because of the slow focus along with the non-sharpness in the picture. After I upgraded to this 50-200mm SWD lens, it was like night and day. The sharpness in the...

AWSOM

 

I use the 50-200 for all kinds of sports, indoor Arenacross, motocross, drag racing and indoor OSU Marion ball sports and have to say it is an AWSOM lens. I have been shooting with Olympus for several years now and this is my lens of choice. I HIGHLY...

Almost perfect for what I want...

 

I planned to use this lens for photographing indoor live performances by musical groups. It works beautifully for that. The f2.8 lets me use higher shutter speeds and/or lower ISO for better results than I was getting. I also use it for some wildlife...

Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 12-60mm f/2.8-4.0 SWD

 

The 12-60mm is an awesome lens. Very comparable to the 14-54mm. It is heavy and weather sealed. It looks, feels and performs like a pro lens. As far as focus well what can I say. It is fast and accurate, faster than the 14-54mm. Maybe but if so not by...

Tough, Sharp, Fast, Weather sealed. Great range of focal length, A perfect walk around lens, splendid in low light.

None that I see. If you don't want a heavy lens then maybe that could be a weakness.
