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.
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.
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.
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.Read more ›
