Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mk III And M.Zuiko 12-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Lens Kit - Black
The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III in classic black colour paired with the M.Zuiko 12-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Lens create a true single lens solution. With extra long zoom reach and lightweight design, this combination can be taken anywhere and will cover virtually any shooting situation. The updated body features a weather-sealed construction, high-performance autofocus capabilities and an up to 5.5 EV stops of image and movie stabilisation. Along with these upgrades, Olympus have also created new shooting features to deliver brilliant image quality and an extensive array of creative options for photographers and filmmakers. Even when paired with professional-grade M.Zuiko PRO lenses, the camera system remains compact and lightweight and can be taken anywhere.
The combination of 20.4MP resolution, high performance lens options and powerful image stabilisation helps photographers and videographers achieve sharp results, in a variety of shooting situations. The new OM-D E-M5 Mark III packs some of the latest imaging technologies into a portable ‘go anywhere’ body.
Olympus worked hard to miniaturise the previous model, in an effort to provide the smallest body possible. Being one of the most compact and lightweight cameras in its class, the E-M5 Mark III can easily be carried on any trip, making it ideal for travel photographers and Vloggers. Despite the long zoom reach, the 12-200mm only weighs 455g, allowing photographers with this kit to travel light and fast for any assignments.
The E-M5 Mark III boasts a number of features inherited from the flagship OM-D E-M1 Mark II camera. Combining these with the 20.4 MP Live MOS sensor and high-speed TruePic VIII image processing creates a powerful system for semi-pros and enthusiasts. When paired with excellent high-resolution Digital ED 12-200mm lens, the new body is capable of capturing images with minimal noise even at high ISO settings, and delivers edge to edge image quality with minimal distortion.
For clean, dust free images, in virtually any weather, the camera body is now constructed with a dust, splash, and freeze-proof chassis, enabling photographers to focus on shooting without worrying about weather conditions. Olympus’ acclaimed SSWF (Super Sonic Wave Filter) sensor cleaning technology reduces the amount of dust and dirt that may end up in photos or video by vibrating the image sensor filter 30,000 times per second when turning the camera on. The iconic design has been further improved ergonomically by adding thumb rests on the back with an enlarged grip to provide a more solid purchase on the camera.
The OM-D E-M5 Mark III is equipped with Olympus’ highly regarded 121-point all cross-type On-chip Phase Detection autofocus (AF) system which allows different single and group target options. Unlike the autofocus in DSLR cameras there is no reduction in AF precision when using a fast lens. This system offers high-precision, high-speed focusing from the maximum aperture of all M.Zuiko lenses regardless of subject pattern. The algorithm has been further improved, preventing the focus from unexpectedly jumping to the background even in mixed perspective scenes with near and far subjects. This will appeal to a variety of photographers from sports, action and wildlife to portrait and wedding shooters.
To assist capturing fast movements, such as sports or wildlife photography, the E-M5 Mark III allows up to 10 fps high-speed sequential shooting in AF/AE tracking. The moving subject tracking algorithm utilises AF information from both Live View and recorded images to enable quick tracking of unpredictable movement as well as changes in subject speed.
The high-speed, high-precision AF brings out the full potential of the MSC (Movie & Still Compatible) mechanism which enables fast and quiet autofocusing when using Digital ED 12-200mm.

The M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-200mm is the second longest zoom lens in the current Olympus micro four thirds line-up. Equivalent to 24-400mm in 35mm format, this lens is capable of providing a single solution for photographers and videographers. Paired with the new Olympus OM-D E-M5 III this kit is ideal for a host of photography styles for both enthusiasts and semi professionals. Sports, action and wildlife photographers will love the long zoom reach, particularly when combined with the fast accurate phase detect AF system with 121 cross type points. This mirrorless body and lens combination is also ideal for travel, weighing in around a mere 860g including battery and memory card.
With updated in-body stabilisation algorithms providing 5.5 EV stops and several camera functions to improve image quality, expect to see sharp, clear and high resolution 20MP images with this combination. Stabilisation works throughout the entire focal range, which means near to distant subjects will be pin sharp, even for high definition 4k video. If you only want to pack one lens in your camera bag, but still have virtually any shooting choice available, this combination from Olympus makes an excellent choice.
