Learn about the OLYMPUS 12-60MM F/2.8-4 SWD ZOOM LENS

Some people are professional photographers, and their standards reflect that. Some people have professional aspirations or just want to make the highest quality images like the pros – which means their lenses need to reflect that, as well. Here at Adorama, we have a lens that serves those purposes - the OLYMPUS 12-60MM F/2.8-4 SWD ZOOM LENS. This high performance, Four Thirds System Olympus Zuiko 12-60mm can help your photography lead the pack. Let us illustrate exactly why:

  • Pedigree: We at Adorama don’t always like to invoke pedigree when we talk about a lens, because then it sounds like we’re talking about dogs. But the truth is, the Olympus Zuiko 12-60mm comes from a large and award-winning “family” of lenses that are designed to function exclusively with digital cameras. That’s a high degree of calibration and quality that you can expect, and this lens is no different.
  • Fast autofocus. Okay, let’s talk details. How fast is the autofocus on this puppy? Sure, the zoom range covers an equivalent of 24mm to 120mm, but what about the precision of autofocus to cover your tracks when you’re zooming in and out? Well, the Olympus Zuiko 12-60mm boasts one of the fastest autofocus features around, powered by the SWD (Supersonic Wave Drive) by Olympus. The speed and precision you see here is second to none. And the noise? Almost nonexistent. You’ll never have a lens this fast unless you invent a time machine to go to the future and get one.
  • Combine it with an Olympus E-3 DSLR for maximum performance, including that famous “fastest autofocus around.” But there will be more here, including a 100% digital design that gives you HD performance no matter what kind of shot you’re going for. The images will be fast, the autofocus will be fast, the output will be clear and high-contrast, and you’ll wonder why you ever bothered with a different lens before.
  • When you’re working with this kind of digital firepower, you want to make sure that no stone gets left unturned when it comes to your actual hardware. Luckily, you’ll have special optical glass elements in this lens that will correct various aberrations, from ghosting to chromatic yuckiness.
  • Versatility will never be a concern because this lens is ready for general use, landscapes, low light, night photography, portraits, action, live events, weddings, wildlife—just about anything you can think to shoot with a camera, this lens will be ready to handle your demands.

If you’re looking for your photography to stand up to blue ribbon winning, Best In Show standards, get yourself a OLYMPUS 12-60MM F/2.8-4 SWD ZOOM LENS.
