This telephoto zoom lens for Micro Four Thirds (MFT) system cameras provides an angle of view equivalent to an 80-300mm lens used on a 35mm format camera and sports a constant f/2.8 maximum aperture throughout the zoom range.
Olympus is making a big splash with the new Olympus 40-150mm Æ’/2.8 Pro lens. No longer are professional and enthusiast photographers beholden to their large, heavy DSLR telephoto zooms if they want a tele lens with bright apertures, rugged weather-sealed build quality and compatibility with...
The Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 40–150 mm f/2.8 ED PRO is a worthy representative of the top-of-the-range series produced by Olympus. Its build quality is outstanding, it comes with an interesting focal range, provides an excellent image quality and overall it would be difficult to find any serious flaw...
RAW files distortion level at the 40 mm focal length should have been lower.
The Olympus M.Zuiko ED 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO is, mostly, a highly desirable lens - except for one bug. On the positive side, it is very good if not excellent in the primary image quality metrics. It is very sharp across the focal length range including some greatness in the middle portion.
For Micro Four Thirds users craving longer focal lengths, Olympus’s latest addition to its already impressive lens line-up is as good as it gets.
The combination of great build quality and performance alone are enough to recommend this lens. The fact that it offers a unique zoom range, whilst maintaining a fast f/2.8 throughout is even better. It's capable of delivering excellent image quality too, and is even fairly reasonably priced.
Excellent sharpness, especially when stopped down a little, Relatively compact and lightweight, Robust build, Dust and splash proof, Quick access for manual focus, Good value, Fast focusing
Manual focus control easily nudged, May be a little large for many MFT bodies, Sharpness could be better towards the edges of the frame at 40mm
Regular 'consumer' zoom lenses have a variable maximum aperture, but pros demand a constant f/2.8 lens with consisting top-drawer performance – and Olympus has produced exactly that.
This is actually the one you want.I've been shooting m4/3 off and on for a while. When the Panasonic 35-100 came out, I got a very early copy. Don't get me wrong - it's an excellent lens. But this one is better. Loads better.The biggest complaint from m4/3 enthusiasts - it's too big.
The Olympus 40-150mm f/2.8 is a brilliant lens. Very sharp, reasonably compact and light for the aperture and focal length and has the fabulous Olympus push-pull manual focus collar.
Probably one of the best zoom lenses at any price
The bokeh could be better
This lens is a great buy! On micro4-3 it is a 80-300. The lens handles nicely with my omd-em1 & battery grip. I love the way the lens hood operates...just slides back and forth, no need to take off and reverse it.
F 2.8, fast focus,sharp and light weight compared to any other 2.8 lens.
General comments - this lens is mechanically solid and the zoom/focus feel is smooth and competent. Lens comes with a nice bag, a tripod mount, and a lens hood. I purchased this as a set with the 1.4x tele-converter. It is basically a zoom giving you 80 - 300mm F2.8 (35mm equiv.
I love this lens. The image quality is sharp corner to corner and the lens shows exceptional vignetting control and virtually no chromatic aberration. The only downside is the price, at least at the present time.
No weak spots here. It's a no-brainer if you can afford it.
I'm so happy I got this, and that I decided to go with M43. This is a jewel.
Excellent quality lens. I'm using this with a OMD E-M1 II and have been very impressed with the results so far - both within and without the 1.4x adaptor. Focusing is quick and precise, the lens isn't too heavy (given the zoom range) and the build quality is excellent.
better than canon "L" glass - you won't be disappointed
This is one of the sharpest lenses I have ever used! Even sharper than the Canon L lenses I have, including the 70-200 f/2.8 IS! On the Olympus EM-D M-5 Mk II body with IBS, the images at 300mm, hand held are tack sharp! Very impressive lens! Highly recommended!!
