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.

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

f/2.8 is not ... the real max aperture for the lens.

By Khoi
Rated 4 out of 5

I currently own a Canon RF 70-200 f/2.8, but going with Olympus to look for something portable easy and light weight. The OM-D E-M5 III and M.Zuiko ED 40-150 f/2.8 Pro seem to be good. Solid build, compact, easy portable, fast focus... But I am disappointed a little bit when taking portrait pictures to compare with the Canon RF I own. No way the Olympus bokeh can compare with Canon RF bokeh. I read the EXIF data of the jpeg pictures I took from the Olympus, and found out the max aperture is 3, not 2.8. Attached hereto are two pictures, one from Canon RF, one from Olympus Pro.

great addition to a lightweight wildlife kit

I'm mostly an outdoor/wildlife photographer using Pentax equipment, but I have used OM-D as lightweight travel cameras. Now with the M Zuiko 40-150 PRO I am starting to optimize my M43 kit for wildlife. While the maximum focal length is only 150mm (M43, so translate that as you will) this lens offers rapid autofocus and good definition. Joined to an OM-D M1 mark ii it is already my first choice for birds in flight. And not bad for wildlife in any context, if you can get close. How I wish there was OIS in the lens! That's the only caveat, so far.

Very capable lens - great range

This is so much smaller than the 70-200mm f/2.8 I am used to using - and the extra reach makes it that much more usable. The increased DOF has not been an issue and some of the time with wildlife subjects I'm wishing for more - so this works really well. Four stars for two issues - it should have come with the ring to cover the pins for the collar since this lens is likely to be mostly used handheld. Including a collar and foot that isn't Arca-Swiss means I have to add an Arca Swiss plate, or replace the whole collar and foot with one that does have a Arca-Swiss foot. I invested the money to solve these two misses - it would have cost Olympus far less to provide these up front.

Purchase for use in video production at my local church. Functions great in low light and produces a great image. No problems maintaining focus and the build quality is outstanding. I would highly recommend it for use in low light situations like church and weddings.

Good smaller telephoto

After limited use I am very favorably impressed by this lens. I have the 12-40 and 300 mm lenses, and this lens provides a valuable area of coverage. It is sharp, fast and has proven good in limited use in cold weather for capturing some mountain vista images. The one weak spot appears to be the lens hood, as others have mentioned.

Its Unique

By John

Its a good lens for 2 reasons. 1. Is because of the glass. Clear and sharp. 2. I because of the focal length equivalent. Its equal to 80 - 300 on a full frame. The big 3 full frame makers have something at 70 - 200 for f/2.8. you get a good quality 300mm equivalent with this lens. No-one else has that and its great.

The Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO Lens works very well on the Pen F, as well as the Pen. It is easy to balance the lens using either camera.

It will focus but not Zoom. That being said, we use this with out studio cameras and they are great. Stay away from any M43 lens with powered zoom, they're all garbage. (Trust me)

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.

will the waterproofing of this lens keep it safe while at tidepools from the occasional splash from waves? What about dipping the front element under the surface for a few photos throughout the day.
Asked by: Daniel
The weather seals on a camera or lens allows you to use it in the rain or a few splashes from a wave. It is not meant for submersion.
