  • 1Description

The M.Zuiko Digital ED 14-150mm f/4.0-5.6 Zoom Lens from Olympus is a high-power wide to telephoto zoom (28-300mm in 35mm equivalent) that offers amazing optical performance in an extraordinarily compact and lightweight (9.87 oz, 280 g) design.

In order to fit the requirements for Micro Four Thirds System cameras, this lens features a reduced lens diameter (2.5", 63.5mm) and overall length (3.3", 83mm) with a minimum image field of 78 x 59mm. It is constructed with 15 elements in 11 groups, employing ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements to suppress the color aberration that can degrade image quality, particularly at wide-angle focal lengths.

The wide focal range of this lens is perfect for everything from portraits and interior scenes to sports and landscape photography. Mounted on the camera full-time, it's ready for any photo opportunity.

    Olympus 14-150mm reviews

    M.Zuiko Digital ED 14-150mm f/4.0-5.6 Zoom Lens (Micro Four Thirds) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 75.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect all-purpose lens I use this lens for almost all my exterior shots. Except in low-light situations, I also find it extremely useful for indoor work such as parties. The most important features of this lens include its outstanding sharpness, its light weight and its small size. Combine this lens with a few high speed single focal length lenses and you have an ideal light weight kit for virtually all eventualities. Once you own this lens, you will put your OM-D kit lenses on the shelf. The major drawback of this lens is that it is not especially suited to sports photography, because its max aperture does not permit sufficient shutter speed or reliable focus tracking.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very good Travel/general purpose lens This is the 2nd example of this lens I've gotten. The 1st was unacceptable at 150mm. This lens I'm happy to say is considerably better. I had returned the 1st one, but when the lens went on sale again I decided to try once more. It's not in league with the m4:3 primes, nor the 12x40, but it's utility is a joy to use and IQ is good enough that I'd be willing to print up to 16x20 with it. I also like it's good close up ability. I use it as a travel lens, and carry the tiny 45 f/1.8 for low light. A very light travel kit. If you don't plan to print BIG, it's an excellent general purpose tool.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great 'All Rounder' Having moved over to Micro Four-Thirds I have bought several lenses. I bought the Olympus 14-150mm lens to take on holidays (as on those occasions I don't want to be changing lenses). It feels solid, but not heavy; the lens does not self open when the camera is pointing down (this is a great plus especially when travelling). The images it produces are very clear and crisp through the whole range without vignetting in the corners.I am very pleased to be able to take wide angle and extreme zoom photos all from the one lens. If you travel or only ever want one lens, then this is highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing zoom lens but sort of defeating This lens is an excellent lens to take around with you but you will find it slightly bigger than your 14-42mm kit lens or your 17mm standard lens... It gives super zoom capability and really gives you some very sharp images... I use it with my E-PL1... it came very quickly from B&H without any problems to Canada... I am impressed with the size and what this lens can do but it no longer fits my bag properly... I was looking for a smaller camera with advanced features like my D90 and this gave it to me... the lens makes the camera less portable but its an excellent replacement if you want to carry just one lens for travel.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Meets my requirements The Pen's collapsible 14 42mm kit lens is excellent for discreet unobtrusive photography, but you often need a longer lens, so the 14 150mm is a welcome addition, particularly for travel. The lens handles well on the camera. I have done a few subjective tests against my kit lens and a 40 150mm lens. The new lens is a little softer at full aperture, but by f/8 the results are almost indistinguishable from the older lenses. This holds through to f/16, but I would not use it above that. I found very little colour fringing or distortion. All in all it is a well balanced lens. It is perhaps a bit expensive, but the difficulty of designing and manufacturing a 10.7x zoom probably justify it. I look forward to taking it to our Kruger National Park.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid performer I used to own the Panasonic 14-140mm, but found it too heavy on the E-PL1. This Olympus 14-150mm balances perfectly on the PL1. Picture quality is top notch from 14-100mm, beyond that it is still very good, but slightly harder to get razor sharp shots unless you can get a very high shutter speed. I also owned the Panasonic 14-45 and the Olympus 14-54 II for 4/3 and feel good about having let those go in favor of this 14-150mm. Basically all you would ever need on a long trip is this lens and maybe the 20 1.7 for low light situations and you have an insanely flexible system that weighs next to nothing. I've used it heavily over the course of two weeks so far and have no regrets. The Autofocus is lightening quick, just as fast as the Panny 14-45mm.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect all-around lens for my E-P2 I tend to keep the Panasonic 20mm pancake lens on my E-P2 most of the time, but I take this lens along to cover the bases. The mixture of its range and portability make it perfect for those situations where a prime doesn't do the job. I've just begun to experiment with the lens, but so far it has not disappointed. Excellent image quality, especially in the mid- to mid-long range and Olympus seems to have dealt successfully with the issue of auto-focus speed--this baby's nice and fast! If there was a 4.5 rating option, I would have given it a higher rating.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great versatile and lightweight lens I switched from dual lens setup (14-42mm+40-150mm) to this one lens solution. It feels so liberating without the need to constantly changing between those two. The lens is sharp throughout the entire range and I found no noticeable difference between this and the the other two lenses in terms of sharpness and contrast. My only finding is that I have to use shutter speeds of 1/500s or faster for optimal sharpnes at the long end (the difference is significant). The lens produces wonderfully smooth bokeh at longer focal lengths. The mount is metal. I beleive the correct price point for this lens would be $399 as it is still mostly plastic, very slow aperture and is manufactured with low production costs in China
