The Olympus M.Zuiko ED 40-150mm f2.8 PRO is the perfect telezoom for Olympus Micro Four Thirds shooters, even though Panasonic owners will be turned off by its lack of in-lens stabilization.

  • +

    Edge-to-edge sharpness throughout zoom range. No distortion. Protected from cold, dust, and splashes. Excellent close focus capability. Innovative collapsible hood. Manual focus clutch system. Includes tripod collar.

    Pricey. Lack of optical stabilization an issue for Panasonic Micro Four Thirds shooters.

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.

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.

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!!
