    Olympus 261505B reviews

    M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f/4.0-5.6 Lens (Black) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice, light & very sharp telephoto lense The Olympus 40-150mm f4-5.6 M Zuiko lens is a very useful focal length. I'm using this on the EPL2. Surprisingly it focuses very quickly. The lense hood is separate and getting the exact one for this lens is a must.With the one made specifically for this lense you can reverse mount the hood for keeping on the camera and storing it with it on.It twist mounts on the lens which I like. Also it takes 58mm filters which are readily available. Another surprise, it is consistently sharp with very nice images. The barrel is plastic but looks quite unique with its silver body. A must have for micro 4-3rds system.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just right for a Micro 4/3 camera. What a fantastic lens - you can shoot there without being there! It is relatively light and small so is very proportional to my Olympus E-P2 camera. It has a smooth and quality feel.Pictures are very crisp and the focusing is quick. I had the Panasonic equivalent lens, but with its inbuilt IS it was quite bulky thus I sold it to buy the Olympus - happy with that move.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Consumer Tele Zoom Very, very nice new addition to the micro 4/3rd's line of lenses. This optic is extremely lightweight with virtually 100% plastic construction other than the lens optics and electronic connections. I use it with an E-PL1 and it gives very good results, but being as light as it is you need to take precautions as far as using as fast a shutter speed as possible as there's no extra weight there to help keep it steady as you handhold. I use the 70-300 and 50-200 SWD Zuikos on my Olympus DSLR's and find it necessary to take a little extra precaution when using this lens at the long end due to the non-existant weight, but it sure is a joy to carry compared to those other large lenses! I have used this lens for outdoor scenics, indoors with my FL50R flash and at a professional hockey game where the made-for-television NHL lighting and fast focus allows you to use this lens wide open at 150mm at f5.6 and, in my case, at ISO 2000 with very respectable results. The barrell is a little tightly torqued on taking from the box at first but has loosened slightly after quite a bit of use and now feels great in use. Build quality is excellent with obviously tight tollerances, optics are first class and gives results making the price more than worth it in my opinion when you consider how much faster it focuses compared to the DSLR version of this lens. I am not a movie shooter, but the AF action is both fast and silent so should be quite nice for those wanting to use it for that purpose.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! I bought this lens because it was inexpensive, and I had found a few situations where I needed a little more reach than the kit zoom. I figured that at the price, it would be acceptable, but nothing special. I was wrong. This lens (the one I got, anyway) is tack sharp at all focal lengths. I took it out on a sunny afternoon, and shot fall colors and details of buildings, high up and far away. When I got home and looked at the files, I was amazed. Nice colors, and super super sharp. One caution: at the longest focal lengths, even 1/500 is not fast enough to cancel camera movement every time. Do what you have to with the ISO to keep the shutter speed at 1/1000 or faster when the lens is zoomed all the way out. It's very light, and probably not the toughest lens ever. Don't pound nails with it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Little Lens This lens isn't the fastest lens in the world, but it is very light, small, and produces amazing results. For the price and performance, I'm not sure this can be beat in this area. Olympus makes a lens that has a much wider opening and the same telephoto end, but it isn't a crisp across the range. Panasonic makes one similar, but longer, but it cost more and is bigger and heavier with images that are on par with this, or a tick better at 150mm. This is a good little lens, but needs to be pampered a bit. Don't expect it to hold up to a lot of banging and mis-use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A real micro four thirds bargain This is a terrific value for the money. Images are tack-sharp. Only pixel-peepers should find fault. Build quality is solid, despite being platic throughout. Unlike their 14-42, there is no detectible wobble in the barrel when extended. No lens creep at all, and zooming is smooth, if a little stiff. It is a compact unit, but on a body such as the E-P1 may seem to defeat it's compactness somewhat. Even then, its' light weight doesn't throw off the balance of the camera. Having a common 58 filter is also a plus. Highly recommended.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lightweight lens I received this lens as a gift that I had specifically requested. I was immediately surprised by how solid it felt for such a lightweight lens. Zoomed to 50mm I was almost immediately producing some of the nicest portraits I've taken in a while due the nice bokeh. With a light weight and tight feel to its zoom, it appears to be immune to lens creep. It's a great value for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Partnership: Lens to Camera I purchased the Olympus PEN E-PL2 with the kit 14-42mm II lens as a lightweight walkabout camera for those times when travel, space or circumstances simply did not warrant the heft and size of my Canon 5D, MII. After a few months use, I felt the need for a little more focal length to capture some photo ops that did not permit close proximity to subject. This 40-150mm lens completes a great walkabout equipment ensemble, meeting the needs of most photo ops encountered to date. It easily fits my small shoulder bag, along with its 14-42mm brother lens. I primarily shoot landscape scenes and found the optics of this lens, surprisingly sharp throughout the focal range (some softening at 150mm). At times, outdoor lighting conditions may produce some lens flare. I highly recommend purchasing this lens with the Pearstone 58mm lens hood to reduce possible flare. It may not have the build and optics of a Canon L lens, but I have printed 16 X 20 prints taken with this lens and been very pleased with color and clarity of the finished product.
