Long Reach and Outstanding Sharpness
Providing long reach with an advanced optical design, the M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f/4 PRO from OM SYSTEM gives you high-resolution image quality anywhere you go. Compact and lightweight for maximum portability, this versatile telephoto zoom is an 80-300mm equivalent lens for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras.

Sophisticated Optical and Mechanical Design
  • Two ED (extra-low dispersion) elements, two aspherical elements, one Super ED element, and one HR 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) minimizes lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.
  • Movie and still compatible (MSC) autofocus system benefits both photo and video applications due to its smooth, quiet, and fast performance.
Built for the Elements
  • Reliable weather-sealed design featuring IP53 dustproof and splash-proof construction ensures the lens's performance in inclement and harsh conditions.
  • Fluorine coating provides protection to the optical system and repels dust, water droplets, grease, and dirt, allowing for easy removal even when they adhere to the lens surface.

OM SYSTEM M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f/4 PRO Reviews

Fits the gap nicely

By Willard

I recently purchased this lens to fill the game between my short zoom and long zoom. Now I have three Olympus zoom lens that covers the entire range of any potential photos. This lens is sharp and delivers a wonderful product. The lens is different than most in that you have to lock and unlock the zoom. Took some getting used to, but very straight forward. The lens hood design is far superior than than other Olympus lens. A great value.

Sharpest zoom lens I have ever owned

Extremely sharp! Sharper than my Canon EF 70-200 f4 L, which was the the standard I compared every zoom lens to. Build quality is excellent as well, all metal and weather-sealed. Amazingly capable 80-300mm Full Frame equivalent in a very compact lens for it's range. This is my sixth M. Zuiko lens for my OLY OM-D E-M1MKIII, 3 of them Pro lenses, and I think it's the best one yet! It will be on my camera a lot!

Great lens

If you want a well built, light weight lens in this focal length, this is a great lens. Compared to the olympus 2.8, this lens is an f stop slower but for my purposes that doesn't matter. Image quality is comparable and it is so much lighter. It fits perfectly in my domke f6. What do you give up: manual focus clutch (not a big deal if you program a handy button for manual focus), tripod ring and the ability to use olympus teleconvertors (I do miss that). Also background bokeh is not as blurred as the 2.8 can deliver. On balance, I prefer the new f4 to the 2.8 and consider it to be a take anywhere lens. That means I will use it more which is a good thing. B&H delivered this to my door two days after I ordered it!!!!

Small Package, Long Reach

By Jeff

My OM System 40-150mm F/4 Pro lens went on its first outing last week. I am quite pleased with the results. Sharpness is very good, and the alleged softness at full zoom cleared up very nicely with a bit of small-radius sharpening to reveal considerable fine detail. Bokeh turns out to be very nice for a zoom, even with a relatively small aperture. The extending feature was a bit surprising but it does make the lens nicely compact for its reach: In the stowed position, the lens is smaller than a 12 oz. can of pop. This lens pairs perfectly with the 12-45 F/4 Pro zoom for a small, light, weather-resistant combo with a huge range. Yes, I want to use it more.

Amazing Lens

This new lens from OM System is certainly in a class by itself. It is small (4.25 long) very light and amazingly sharp. I am using it on my OM System OM-1 camera body and the combination is first rate. The lens is extremely well made, zoom and focus rings are metal and extremely smooth rotating. Focus is fast and accurate. This lens fits neatly in my camera bag and is perfect for traveling.

Great when paired with the OM-1

40-150mm f/4 Pro (80-300mm equivalent) is a great pairing for the OM System OM-1. I find focus is very quick. The IBIS and BIF setting in the OM-1 make for many keepers for birds in flight shots. I was not sure f/4 would be fast enough, with the OM-1 ISO performance this is not an issue. I like knowing the f/4 aperture is throughout the entire focal length range. The size of this lens makes it easy to use as a walk-about lens, small and light.
