Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO Overview

Offering long reach with an advanced feature-set and optical design, the M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO from Olympus is a versatile 80-300mm equivalent telephoto zoom for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. As part of the PRO series of advanced lenses, this zoom distinguishes itself with a bright f/2.8 constant maximum aperture for consistent illumination throughout the zoom range to suit working in a variety of lighting conditions. Its optical design makes use of a series of aspherical and low dispersion glass elements to suppress chromatic and spherical aberrations for notable sharpness and clarity, and a ZERO coating is also used to reduce flare and ghosting for high contrast, color-accurate imaging.

Complementing the optics, a dual VCM autofocus system offers fast and near-silent focusing performance to suit both stills and movie recording applications. A manual focus clutch permits quick switching between AF and MF, and a programmable L-Fn button avails lens-based control over shooting settings. The lens is also weather-sealed for working in trying conditions, and a removable rotating tripod collar is included for improved balance and support when working atop a tripod or monopod.

Telephoto zoom is designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras and provides an 80-300mm equivalent focal length range.
Bright f/2.8 constant maximum aperture suits working in a variety of lighting conditions throughout the zoom range.
One aspherical ED (extra-low dispersion) element, two aspherical elements, one Super ED element, three ED elements, and one HD element are featured within the optical design to minimize both spherical and chromatic aberrations, distortion, and color fringing throughout the zoom range while also contributing to overall image sharpness, clarity, and color accuracy.
A ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating has been applied to individual elements to minimize lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.
A Dual VCM (voice coil motor) system is used for quick and near-silent autofocus performance. By separating the focusing mechanism into two groups controlled by separate linear AF motors, focus speeds are faster and the friction-free movement is notably quieter to benefit video recording.
Manual focus clutch lets you quickly pull the focusing ring into place for direct, intuitive focus control.
Programmable L-Fn (lens function) button for easily accessible settings adjustment.
Dust-, freeze-, and splash-proof design uses 11 separate seals to ensure the lens's performance in inclement and harsh conditions.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm produces a smooth bokeh quality.
Removable rotating tripod collar offers a stable platform for working with this lens atop a tripod or monopod.
Included lens hood collapses back onto the lens for a more compact profile when stored.
Compatible with the optional M.Zuiko Digital MC-14 1.4x Teleconverter to further extend the reach to a 112-420mm equivalent focal length range.

An essential lens to have

Cant be happier with this lens...a must have as part of your photography bag.

Great telephoto

By George

I use this with a 1.4 converter, giving me a 56-210 zoom, equivalent to 35mm 112-420. I have gotten excellent bird shots with it on my OM 1, but even with the IBIS in my aging and trembling hands it requires stabilization. Leaning the camera against a tree or resting an elbow on a post is enough, so that I don't always carry a tripod. My home investigations, not as good as laboratory studies, indicate that it is sharp through out the range from its widest wide angle to its longest telephoto, and sharp from edge to edge, with a flat field so that a flat object will be in focus all the way across the picture. OM systems justifiably calls this a Pro lens.

First, for the range on this thing, this is a very compact and lightweight lens. The lens is sharp, colors are vibrant, and it performs well in all conditions. It's my second lens for M43 and I don't regret it. If you can, try it out to see if it's good for you.

The Olympus M.Zuiko 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO lens is clear and sharp! I've taken photos in bright sunlight and dark shadows, and everything looks amazing. It's lightweight and handles really well. The weather sealing was a must for me.

A No Brainer and Must Have lens

I'll just say this. If one has an Olympus camera and they don't have this lens, they are missing out. This lens is not only one of the most useful focal ranges one can or will use (eq: 80-300mm in ff) but the speeds afforded by it's larger aperture and superb bokeh at the long end are simply highly desired. I would refer to this lens as clinically sharp and if it's not you either got a bad copy or are using it on a Panasonic body. The build quality is Rolls Royce all the way. If you don't have one you NEED this believe me.

Even better than I expected!

I received this lens a couple of weeks ago and have been running trial photoshoots - bids, grandkids, etc. as much as winter weather allows. The lens is amazingly sharp. and the f/2.8 all through the zoom makes it possibly to get great shots even in poor lighting. It also has the benefit, if you are shooting at full f/2.8 aperture, of blurring out the background nicely, which is a huge benefit for child portraits and bird photos, making the subject leap out of the frame. All photos attached shot in my backyard at 150 mm zoom, through a closed window.

I recently purchase an Olympus mirrorless camera and several lens. I am extremely pleased with pictures made with this system. It is much lighter than my Canon. This lens worked very well for my needs.

question

does this lens have image stabilization?
Asked by: Anonymous
The image stabilization is done in the body of the camera...sensors there... Thus, lenses without internal stabilization may be used with the EM-1.
