Style Name: 40-150mm F4.0-5.6Color Name: Black
The Olympus 40-150mm is a good option if you are on a budget and the lens is on sale as it often can be. At the list price of $199, I feel there are better options like the Panasonic 45-150mm which sells for $220-$260. The Panasonic offers a more compact body being 1 cm shorter, a metal lens mount compared to the plastic mount on the Olympus, and more durable lens barrel compared the very plasticy feel of the Olympus. If you are shooting with a Panasonic camera the Panasonic 45-150mm lens is a no brainer because it offers image stabilization whereas the Olympus 40-150mm does not since the stabilization is in the body. Even if the Olympus was on sale for $150 and you were a Panasonic shooter I think it would be best to spend the extra $80 to get the Panasonic zoom over the Olympus.

The Olympus 40-150mm does produce surprising sharp images for such an inexpensive lens. The sweetest spots are focal lengths between 40-70mm. The image quality sees a fall off at 150mm which is fairly common for telephoto zooms. The image quality between the Panasonic 45-150mm and the Olympus 40-150mm are very similar. The only real advantage the Olympus offers over the Panasonic is at 150mm when shooting at infinity. The Panasonic images are soft whereas the Olympus images are still pretty good.

This is a solid performing lens for the price. If you are looking to purchase this lens I'd wait for a sale since there are other, better options out there. I've seen this lens as low as $99 which is a fantastic price for what you get regardless if you are shooting Olympus or Panasonic.

I've had this lens for around 3 months now. It's my main sports (Football and Lacrosse) lens. I have a OM-D (E-M5) body and it works great with it.

Are there better lens out there? Certainly. Are there better multi-purpose Micro 3/4 lens for this price? I don't think so.

I'd normally rate it a 4, but went with 5 stars to off-set idiots who rate the vendor and not the lens. You won't be disappointed in this lens.

Style Name: 40-150mm F4.0-5.6Color Name: Black Verified Purchase
This was my first telephoto lens, and I wasn't too sure about what to expect. The first thing that struck me was how small it is. At it's shortest length, it is only about the thickness of the lens cap longer than the kit 14-42 lens when it's extended. It is also the same size in diameter. I also have the panasonic leica 25mm lens and the leica lens is fatter, and with the hood attatched, it is longer as well. This lens is very lightweight, by feel the same as the kit lens, but does not feel cheap like the kit lens does. My kit lens has spots where it will creak if you squeeze it a certian way on the zoom ring, and the focus ring has a slight gritty feel to it. This zoom lens has none of those issues. The focus ring is nicely damped, and smooth. The zoom ring is the same. I was suprised at how much larger the lens gets when zoomed in; I would say it roughly doubles in length to extend about 5 & 3/4 inches from the camera body. In this state, with the lens fully extended, is the only time it looks a little cheap to me, I guess because of the smooth plastic body that is revealed.

Now on to how the lens works. This is where I was truly impressed. I am using the lens on a cheap e-pl1 body, with image stabalization turned on. The lens is fast to focus, and is not noisy at all. I used it on a trip to the zoo, and was impressed with how many good pics I got with it. It is very sharp, even zoomed all the way in, and was'nt hard to use at all. All my pics were handheld, and more often than not were tac sharp. I even got a couple of shots of a helicopter passing buy that shocked me. I could see reflections of something on the back of the heli.

Style Name: 40-150mm F4.0-5.6Color Name: Silver
As a background, I'm a pro-photographer and over the years used both Canon and Nikon for my work and still do but when it comes to having fun and enjoying just taking pictures you really need something more portable and light so I chose the m4/3 system and I'm loving every minute.
The lenses in this system are generally good to great. On my camera I have a panny prime lens for most situations that include portraits but when out shooting or on vacation I never go without the 40-150. Its light weight and gets really close to the subject without compromise. Nice depth of field on far away subjects and very sharp across the frame. for the price you can't get much better.
Most people might spend the extra for the 14-150....why carry a big lens for wide angel photography that isn't as sharp or as fast as using a prime.

This lens is a very good deal. Ok, it's not spectacular like the gorgeous Olympus 12mm, the wonderful Panasonic Leica 25mm, or the Oly 45mm but still all in all, especially when considering the cost, a nice, solid lens and a great deal. It's lightweight (if a little plasticky feeling), sharp, quiet, and focuses quickly (esp. outdoors). the lens has a nice textured grip that offsets all the plastic and for a super telephoto lens is very small. works nicely on both my m4/3 cameras and w/ image stabilization allows you to get sharp, close-up photos of animals, birds, butterflies, etc. Did I say it's a heck of a deal at this cost?
