    Olympus 150mm f/2.0 Reviews

    Zuiko Digital ED 150mm f/2 Lens is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful lens I can't say enough of this lens. Hands down one of the finest lenses Olympus have ever made. 300mm equivalent focal length is incredibly useful. From sports, events, news, wildlife, this lens can do it all. Paired with an Olympus 1.4x teleconverter, this lens effectively becomes a 400mm 2.8. Focusing speed is the same, fast and accurate. The price for this combination is incredible compared to the competition. If you want 600mm f/4.0 simply add an EC-20 tele-converter and you'll have this reach. Folks their is no other lens out there with this incredible flexibility and price. Paired with the Olympus EM1 (with the 1.4 firmware) this lens is phenomenal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW factor in spades! I bought this lens for sporting events, indoor and outdoor, and I simply can't believe the images I get with this on my Olympus E 5 body! Football, basketball and hockey are easy to shoot with the best results I've ever had! The range is 300mm in 35 slr, and the lens is tack sharp wide open at f 2.0. This lens produces vivid images, colorwise, and is compact but heavy. This is definitely pro glass and yields pro images, and it is priced accordingly, but if you have the money buy it. It is lens perfection! I look for excuses to put this one on my camera because the shots are just fantastic!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from In a unique class by itself This is one superb piece of glass. As I also use the Canon 300mm f/2.8L, I felt somewhat sceptical about the claims that this was the 4/3rds equivalent. My doubts have proven unfounded, as this compact, sturdy little wonder can match its larger counterparts in every area but saturation, and even that is only borderline different. The real benefit of course is that it maintains the DOF of a 150mm lens at its effective new focal length, plus the gain of a stop of aperture speed. I bought it because I'm always working in a zoo area that is perpetually in shade, and needed all the help I could get. This fulfils my needs with flying colours. If you can find a niche for it, I can't recommend it highly enough.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb lens Bought at B&H, I use it with E-3 mainly for animals and people. Incredibile bokeh but always sharp in focus. You will set to f2 anytime, however @ f2.2 reach the maximum. In medium range the focus is fast, a little bit slower when the subject is close. It is the only existing lens for an equivalent 300m @f2. When you think about this, you understand that it is also incredibily compact and not so heavy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely stunning! Low light indoor shows, portraiture and landscape. A great lens to use with Zuiko extension tube for great marco shot. Beautiful bokeh and superb built (thank-like). Sharpness with the new E5 is absolutely superb. Many reviews mention that autofocus is slow but I find it perfect for my type of shooting. The autofocus limiter function on the lens prevents hunting. Among my top 3 Zuiko lens with the 8mm and 50mm. Please buy without hesitation if you can afford it. You will not regret it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have a treat it can't be beat As I am coming up for retirement and will have more free time on my hands I decided to treat my self to a new camera and purchased the Olympus E3 I then decided to treat myself again; I hope my wife dose not read this and upgrade my kit buy adding this lovely lens. Yes it is a bit on the heavy side and expensive but to me this means quality and ruggedness and will withstand any bumps and knocks that will happen some time in the future and along with the added bonus of withstanding the British weather mainly rain I have used this lens and was blown away by the quality of the images that I was getting; and being a novice I have not had time to really get to grips with the potential off this lovely lens I am now looking forward to putting up my images in our local camera club watch out guy's you now have competition I would recommend this lens to any body who can afford it; I think it's well worth every hard earned penny T D Sudds

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a lens! This is possibly the best telephoto lens - ever. It's performance is great, even autofocus which is traditionally not the best on Olympus cameras works very well on E-5. Lens is extremely sharp and detailed with beautifully smooth bokeh and great color and contrast. I have used it with both EC-14 and EC-20 teleconverters and it delivers excellent results. With EC-14, it's very sharp even wide open giving 212mm f2.8 and with EC-20, it's quite good wide open but significantly better stopped down to f5.6 (from f4). Because the lens is quite compact compared to similar primes on other systems such as 200mm f2.0, 300mm f2.8 it's easy to handle and takes converters very well extending the usability greatly. It's much cheaper than two other SHG primes - 90-250mm and 300mm 2.8, so unless one needs zoom of the 90-250 or extra reach of the 300mm, 150mm f2 can serve great with teleconverters for 1/3rd of the price and half the weight. There are no negatives about this lens, it's optical power is superb, it's build quality is excellent and it's of course weather sealed, plus it works really well with teleconverters. It's is not cheap, but it's worth every penny.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little Tuna As a Nature and Wildlfe photographer, this lens is a must. It is small, fast and sharp. I little heavy, but balances well when hand held. Olympus put some thought in the design of this lens. It is great in low light and really shows it stuff around f8, delivering that quality I look for.

    Folks--Can this lens be used (with full function) on an OM-D-E-M1 micro four thirds and, if so, with which adapter. Thanks much.
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Yes, it can. With the Olympus MMF-3 Four Thirds Lens to Micro Four Thirds Lens Mount you can mount any existing Four Thirds lens, including this 150mm on a Micro Four Thirds standard-compliant digital camera, such as the OM-D-E-M1. With the Olympus adapter B&H # OLMMF3, you will enjoy full functionality.
