A word of caution about this and other telephoto lenses negative reviews. The use of a 300mm lens is already demanding in terms of technique. Image stabilization takes only care of camera shake but moving subjects require very short exposures to avoid blur. If the writer does not specify if they are shooting Raw or jpegs there is little value in their conclusions. Additionally, you don't know if they know how to properly process the Raw files and/or what's the setting for in-camera sharpening in jpeg. Lastly, many people shoot on a tripod without turning off image stabilization (a must).
11/16/16 addendum: I am replacing the older pictures with new ones of Echo Bay in New Rochelle, NY, just before and with the latest super moon. All pics are from Raw files developed in PS 6 with the same treatment.
Pic 1: 40mm (80mm eq), f/16, 1/320sec, ISO 800
Pic 2: 70 (140)mm, f/16, 1/32sec, ISO800, tripod
Pic 3: 62 (124)mm, f/16, 1/6sec, ISO800, tripod
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.
Unfortunately I had the case only for a smaller lense, so I recommended to always keep it separately dettached when trasporting it and in separate case as the bottom plastic part of the body doesnt seem very solid.
