Olympus 12-100 F4 New, unused, UK warranty stamped.

My E-M1 II and 12-100 Pro Kit just arrived today.

The 12-100 Pro Zoom that came with it has just been taken out of the box for these photos. I haven't mounted it on a camera body and as you can see the bag, hood, instruction leaflet are wrapped and haven't been taken out of their wrapping. The lens comes with a stamped dealer receipt and has not been registered yet.

Looking for 850 plus 11.00 RMSD.

So this lens will only be like this once: never mounted on a body, not taken a single exposure, brand new. The kit box didn't accommodate a separate box for the lens it seems but if posted it will be wrapped in large amounts of bubble wrap inside a strong box.

TBH I love my 12-40 so didn't really ever have any intention of using the 12-100 but buying it as a kit and selling the lens makes the camera somewhat more affordable..

Bank transfer or PayPal if you don't mind paying the fees or cash on collection hugely preferable. Bring your camera and that will be the first time the lens has been fitted....

Mal.

It's a stunning lens for landscape and travel. It's sharp across the whole zoom range wide open, has incredible image stabilisation (6.5 stops with the E-M1ii - I can quite easily do 8s exposures at 12mm handheld), hardly flares at all and handles very well on the OMDs. It's big by m43 standards, but for its range and quality it's actually very compact.

I can recommend it without reservation.

Thanks Paul for the recommendation. The range would be a dream if I could bring myself to part with my 12-40 which is my favourite standard zoom of all time.

Must not be tempted. Trying hard. It's smaller and lighter than my wonderful 12-60 SWD (with adapter), and the extra IS compensates for aperture (with static subjects) and it zooms to 100mm and probably has better AF. But maybe I really ought to spend more time mastering what I have rather than hoping that the next kit fix will do the trick!

Reading reviews, it does seem a wonderful and versatile lens.

I can't believe you aren't keeping it as Paul said it's brilliant. Only slight downside I've found is the weight.

Reading the reviews it sounds better than I expected. I love the manual clutch for macro shots on the 12-40 (which this also has) and the improved IS is a bonus.

I planned to sell it from the start as that makes the camera a real bargain but in reality I think the 12-100 could be a lens to keep on the camera and use 90% of the time.

In fact with my newly acquired Panasonic 100-400 that could be an ideal 2 lens solution...

Why not keep both the 12-40 and 12-100?
I did and use them both depending on my needs. The 12-100 makes the 12-40 feel positively compact and f/2.8 can be useful some times
Both great lenses, the 12-100 makes a fantastic travel companion (second only to my better half ).

I'm with Huw on this. Will take the 12-40 unless I know I will need extra length - the smaller size and faster aperture are both helpful. They are both lovely lenses.

Interesting you got the 100-400 as well. I am seriously considering that too. Did you get it from LL Electronics as well? I couldn't find them on the net to check out their deals.

No, it did come up at a "must-have" price though.

LL Electronics seem new but they promised a UK warranty and that gear can be registered on Olympus' site for another 6 month warranty.

I'll see when I register the camera...
