    Excellent Lens for the $$$!!! Fast AF. Sharp images! Slight blurring edges towards the long end of the bottle. Nothing unusable. I tried in a few situations. Long lens outdoors. Long Lens for my son's hockey game. I got some great action shots. I'm using with Lumix G3 so no image stabilization. I would recommend this to all the micro 4/3 community!!! Very Happy with performance!

    I love the weight of this lens and its optics are very clear. Shooting this at 85mm and at the lowest aperture setting the corners of the image are crisp and clear. I very useful lens to have added to my arsenal of lens.

    Comments about Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f/4.0-5.6 R Lens for Micro 4/3:

    This lens is a good buy in my opinion. It offers a very long range (80-300mm, 35 mm equivalent).

    The lens behaves consistently and the price is good.

    While the metal finish looks nice, this lens is all plastic. That makes it very light, but does not have the feel of a nice, high-priced lens.

        Have only had my new Olympus for a few weeks, but I am enjoying getting to the camera and the M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm lens is a nice, clean shooting performer as a basic lens. It has a nice range; clean, crisp shots and very little grain even at the high ISOs. A good starter lens for the OM-Ds or the PEN.

                I like the lens to carry around with out the weight of a larger lens
                of this type.

                  It is a very good lens. The quality is better than other lenses caros.Luce well with more color in cans, although once you touch feels plastic.

                          Best: Clear focus

                          Worst: f-stop too dark

                              This lens is new to me. First few days' use show it to be sharper than expected at all focal lengths. Better contrast than the 14-42 kit lens which came with my E-PL1. The two lens overlap gives me a full-frame equivalent coverage of 28 mm to 300 mm. Amazing for the price.

                              Excellent Lens for the $$$!!! Fast AF. Sharp images! Slight blurring edges towards the long end of the bottle. Nothing unusable. I tried in a few situations. Long lens outdoors. Long Lens for my son's hockey game. I got some great action shots. I'm using with Lumix G3 so no image stabilization. I would recommend this to all the micro 4/3 community!!! Very Happy with performance!

                                I have used the lens for shooting skylines and it works great! I also like that it doesn't lock like my other lens does on my Olympus PL-2. Good clarity and range with this lens.
