Extending its versatility, this lens also features a Movie & Stills Compatible autofocus system, which is quick, quiet, and precise to suit both photo and video shooting applications.

Olympus V315030SU000B reviews

M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f/4-5.6 R Lens (Silver) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 296.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy, lightweight zoom Hard to argue against a zoom with an effective range of 80-300mm that you can carry in a coat pocket without even realizing you have it. Add in that it is relatively inexpensive, and you have a winner. I picked this up to use with a new Olympus PEN EP-5 just before a trip to Portland, Oregon and had a terrific time with the lens. It is a bit ungainly when fully extended, but the ability to capture sharp shots at 300mm equivalent without having to carry around a heavy, large lens is really refreshing. Obviously this is not a fast lens, but for the price you get a really useful and practical lens. I'm looking forward to using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal telephoto zoom for travel A good value, light weight telephoto zoom which I purchased specifically for travel. Very pleased with the plastic construction, although the filter thread is easily cross-threaded. Not a problem if you use a prophylactic filter, but if you don't you'll have to be careful. Images are nice and sharp, especially at f/5.6-8, and night/low light performance is quite acceptable on my E-P3. Focus can hunt a little at times, but using a single AF target (my home AF setting) to lock focus and then recomposing eliminates the issue. Very pleased with this lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value The lens is very useful with Olympus OM-D E-M5. The kit 12-50/3.5-6.3 is too dark at the long end to be usable indoors (it is f/5.1 at 25mm already), so the 40-150 takes care of the problem in the 40-50 mm range. The 40-150mm is simple and very light (lighter than even the 12-50, and all competing Panasonic lenses - 45-150, 45-175 and 45-200). Also it accepts Olympus MCON-P01 Macro Converter for cheap macro ability. Focus and aperture are silent and quick. The value with the camera was great, a must buy with an Olympus m43 camera (i.e. with in-body image stabilization), for current Panasonic cameras it is better to use a stabilized zoom unless you always shoot from a tripod.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bargain of the century This is just a great little lens that produces quality images far better than one would expect given it's price, size, and weight. �Sure, it's all plastic--I view that as a plus as it makes it extremely light and still reasonably rugged. �I don't mistreat my gear and don't anticipate making 100,000 exposures with this lens and thus expect it to perform for as long as I need. �Read the technical reviews, it's not a pro grade lens but used in it's sweet spot can rival the image quality of pro lenses. �Compared to the Panasonic 14-140mm lens (which admittedly covers a wider focal length range but is much more expensive) I prefer the "look" that this Olympus lens produces, better micro-contrast, better colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly Remarkable lens To look at, the first wave of Olympus m4/3s lenses seemed a mite flimsy, this one being no exception. But underneath the hood this lens produces surprising results, quite amazing when you consider the price. I prefer it to the Lumix 45-200mm. It's lighter, balances better on my succession of E-PLXs: the 1, the 3, and now the 5. It's also half the price. Sold it with the E-PL1, but recently repurchased because I kept running across the images created with this lens. And since they, the images, speak louder than words, I enclose a few herein. This is a basic, must-have m4/3 lens.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent lens for price! I bought this lens not expecting too much; however, I was surprised that it performed so well. Its optics are very good giving nice, clear, crisp and sharp photos with good color. Its very light weight which makes carrying it a non-factor. While I am primarily a Nikon shooter, I bought an Olympus Pen system when I travel and don't want to be weighted down with heavy lenses. I now tend to shoot more with the Pen system because it is lighter, discreet and takes good pics! The only negative for this lens is its built quality...you have to be careful not to bang it up too much. Overall, a great buy for the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from WOW This lens is super nice. Not only does it have great IQ, but it is lighter than the 12-40mm f/2.8 Pro lens on my Olympus OM-D 5 II. I mainly use it in daylight so the f/4 is more than adequate. I find myself shooting more around mid range anyway. This may seem like a bargain basement lens due to the sort of plastic build, but the glass is amazing. I use mainly a Nikon D750 and pro lenses. I find this little light weight to be above and beyond the so called kit lens. Honestly, I wouldn't waste my money on the newer, more expensive version of this lens. But, if you are hard on your gear and/or use this length zoom every day, then you may need to consider the newer version. I keep mine in a lens case and use it on short hikes for birding. Great lens for the budget conscious.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly Good Although not the PRO version, this lightweight lens turns out to be surprisingly good, almost like the unsung hero in the bag. I have mainly used it outdoors, granted, which supplies good and great light. With the great results, I come away thinking I got a steal of a deal on a very useful lens. I used it indoors at a swim meet once, and I thought I could have used the aperture on the PRO version because I wasn't getting shutter speeds I liked, but it worked okay there too. It was a bust, only because swimming races don't lend well to stills photography anyway, so even with the PRO lens, I would have had a bunch of boring shots to throw away. The shots that turned out well, I used the 45mm f1.8 lens to shoot portrait type images. The races, nah.
