Portability and utility Let's start with the obvious: the 12-100mm f/4.0 IS PRO is pretty small. It's lightweight to carry all day and compact to easily fit in a small bag. It captures amazing images with its constant f/4.0 aperture, edge-to-edge sharpness, and minimal distortion at all focal lengths. This single lens makes for a lighter, more streamlined system. Smaller is better for travel, nature photography, and everyday convenience.
Superior optics The 12-100mm f/4.0 IS PRO lens boasts a lavish collection of 17 lens elements in 11 groups. This remarkable combination ensures superior resolution, sharpness, and suppressed aberration. Cutting-edge lens materials and manufacturing processes help to make these special elements smaller, so this professional lens boasts a compact form without sacrificing image quality. Z coating nano is nanoparticle-based and practically eliminates ghosting and flares caused by in-frame light. Plus, the near-silent MSC focusing mechanism compliments the precise, high-speed AF for crisp stills and smooth video.
Close encounters made easy The 12-100mm f/4.0 PRO was designed so that you can shoot near and far, even at exceedingly close range. This lens has a wide focal length for effortless macro shooting. Capture exquisitely textured shots of flowers, insects, jewelry or any other object where you need to get close, no additional lens required.
Designed for challenging conditions If you can handle shooting in adverse conditions, so can the 12-100mm f/4.0 IS PRO lens. Its pro-quality metal construction is hermetically sealed to keep out moisture and dust for splashproof, dustproof, and freezeproof performance.
Convenience and control The 12-100mm f/4.0 IS PRO makes it easy to get the shots you need. The customizable lens function button lets you easily control your choice of camera functions right from the lens barrel. Programmable functions include Focus Peaking, AF Stop, and Magnify. The focus ring is equipped with a manual focus clutch that allows you to quickly switch back and forth between manual and autofocus. You can even preset a focus position using the easy-to-read distance meter and instantly return to that position from AF Mode by simply pulling the ring towards you.
