new lens: Olympus m.Zuiko Digital 12-50mm f3.5-6.3 Zoom lens

IMG_0198
I’m so happy today that I have this new lens as my new partner in blogging and photography. This lens haunted me for 3 days and then yesterday, I finally picked up my iPhone and contacted a seller that I found in www.Sulit.com.ph that sells this expensive lens with a very nice deal, its funny that I was in the event of Fujifilm X-E2 launch when I started that last minute mobile shopping. LOL

After my 14-42 m.Zuiko lens broke its AF function and then acquiring a 19mm Sigma lens from a friend, I felt that I still need a wider and standard lens for my Olympus E-PL1.

And here’s my wish…coming true. Olympus m.Zuiko Digital 12-50mm f3.5-6.3 lens right in front of my face and my new partner whenever I go around the country.

M.Zuiko Digital 12-50mm f3.5-6.3 Standard Wide Zoom for Olympus PEN - Olympus Imaging Australia 2013-11-06 13-20-24

and the awesome part here is that….it is priced at $499 in Olympus website and I’m not sure how much it is priced here in our country and I haven’t seen yet this being sold in our local stores. The only way to grab this is from OMD EM5 camera users that will dispose their 12-50mm m.zuiko lens.

according to Olympus website:

”A weathersealed standard wide angle zoom Lens. A perfect compliment for the weather proofed OM-D E-M5.

24-100mm f3.5-6.3 equivalent in 35mm format


The ideal standard zoom lens for video and stills capture. Its motorised zoom mechanism provides a smooth constant rate zoom action for optimum video zooming quality. Splash and dust proof.”
I’m using Olympus E-PL1, now I have this feeling that I’m already using an OMD-EM5 haahaha bec. of this lens. OA lang sa reaction pero I’ so happy to have this.

Btw..I bought this at 40% off if you will base this at $499.

It’s a bit long..but that’s okay, more important is that this can shoot wide and it can zoom up to 50mm.
The digital zoom is quiet and I can now shoot videos without those lens noise.

btw, she’s a mommy and a photo hobbyist, she sold the 12-50mm lens to me because she’s raising budget to acquire 75mm prime lens. On her camera, that’s a 45mm lens
