From the manufacturer
Hermetically sealed in 11 places, the 40-150mm f2.8 PRO lens can handle just about any type of weather you can throw at it. Dust, splash and freeze-proof construction means you'll only have to worry about getting the perfect shot instead of protecting your camera.
Superior AF Performance
Smooth, rapid autofocus is a crucial factor in image quality. The 40-150mm f2.8 PRO’s innovative, industry-first Dual VCM (voice coil motor) AF delivers. Separating the focusing mechanism into two lens groups controlled by individual linear drive motors makes AF performance extremely fast and, with no gears involved, nearly friction-free and incredibly quiet.
Lens Function Button
The customizable Lens Function Button (L-FN) allows you to control one of 27 different functions right from the barrel of your lens, including AF Stop, AF Home, Focus Peaking and Magnify.
Movie-Still Compatible (MSC)
The linear drive motor found in the 40-150mm f2.8 PRO is Movie & Still Compatible (MSC) and provides fast, nearly silent focusing and aperture performance; a must-have for any videographer.
Adapted from multilayer film deposition technology used in Olympus' industry-leading line of precision microscopes, the Zuiko Extra-Low Reflective Optical Coating practically eliminates ghosts and flares caused by in-frame light sources. This feature is invaluable when shooting into the sun or other back-lit situations.
Enhance Your Zoom
The available MC-14 teleconverter extends the focal length to a whopping 210mm (35mm equivalent of 420mm) for those really long shots. Plus you can also add a ZUIKO protective filter that features Olympus' renowned ZERO coating technology.
Collapsible Lens Hood
The bundled lens hood has been marvelously designed to collapse back onto the lens for easy storage. When extended, the locking mechanism will fully support the weight of the lens and camera body. And to keep your investment safe, the bundled lens pouch will help protect against dings and scratches.
Stabilized Hand-Held Performance
Paired with the advanced in-body image stabilization of the Olympus OM-D and PEN series of cameras, this extremely bright f2.8 lens allows you to shoot longer hand-held exposures without a tripod.

The Olympus 40-150 f/2.8 PRO (with both caps, lens hood, and tripod collar) weighs in at a hefty 36.25 ounces. This is not a small lens, especially by Micro 4/3 standards.
The build quality is excellent. The Olympus 40-150 f/2.8 PRO has a very solid feel to it. The lens is weather sealed, and dust, splash, and freeze-proof. This pairs nicely with the Olympus OMD EM1, OMD EM5, or OMD EMK MKII, which are all weather sealed bodies.
This lens is made to mount on any Micro 4/3 camera body that supports interchangeable lenses. The mounting ring is steel. The lens mounts to the camera body smoothly with a very reassuring "click" when locked in place.
The zoom ring is smooth with just the right amount of resistance. It does stop at both its maximum and minimum zoom range, which the Panasonic 35-100 f/2.8 does not. I prefer the zoom ring to stop at the end of the zoom range, but you may not. It's a personal preference.
This lens has a programable L-Fn button on the side, just like the Olympus 12-40 f/2.8 PRO. This button can be designated by the user to control AF Stop, View Selection, Digital Tele-converter, Level Display, Focus Peaking, Focus Modes, AF Area Select, RAW mode, HDR, Bracketing, or several other user presets.
The included hood can remain attached to the lens at all times, even when not in use. It slides out for quick deployment, and retracts when it's no longer needed. Simply give it a slight turn to the left and pull it back in to retract. The hood is plastic, but very sturdy. The telescoping motion is smooth and natural.
I paired this lens with an OMD EM5 MKII. Your results may vary based on the camera you use.
I knew this lens was a keeper from my first shot. I was looking down at my camera messing with the settings when out of the corner of my eye I noticed a bird flying by. I snapped the camera into shooting position and fired off a single shot. The focus was instantaneous and the image of the bird was sharp and clear. I was hooked from the first shot.
I have only had this lens a short time, but I've tried to take some difficult shots to really test its limits. Shooting towards the sun produces very little to no purple fringing, something that plagues many lenses. As I've stated, autofocus is very fast, even in poor lighting situations, which really surprised me. The bokeh produced by this lens is very smooth and creamy, alsmost but not quite as good as the Olympus 75mm f/1.8.
As I mentioned before, the Olympus 40-150 f/2.8 PRO is not inexpensive. It was difficult for me to spend so much on a lens. After just a short time with it I have to admit I am 100% satisfied with my purchase. No regrets at all. This lens is impressive and worth every penny to me.
So where has this journey led me? Well I have sold off all my Sony gear except one camera and one lens and I have pretty much gone back to all Olympus products. I shoot, weddings, commercial, and family portraits mainly and yes micro four thirds cameras are really that good. I am so sick of the sensor size argument. I have shot these cameras in every type of lighting environment and they have blown me away. Best part is, Olympus glass is exceptionally good and most lenses will not break the bank. Also, yes, you can get beautiful bokeh and beautiful depth of field with these cameras. I am mean really good. Good enough to earn me wedding photography awards and most importantly the respect of my clients.
Now to this lens. This 40-150 lens is the M43 game changer! Yes, it is that good! Good enough to make me sell off my Sony gear like I mentioned. This lens will go down as one of the best made from any manufacturer. The build quality is exceptional. The contrast is beyond beautiful. The bokeh is buttery smooth. Sharpness is second to none even wide open. Best of all, for a 40-150 f2.8 the lens is compact and light. Yes, it is expensive but if you want a lens to bring out the best in the micro four thirds sensor look no further. Olympus cameras are blazingly fast and with this lens on my OMD-EM1 I never miss a shot and I never have an out of focus image. No back focus issues ever (you hear that Nikon?) If you are serious about photography get this lens. It will blow you away.
One quick side note. I get asked from Nikon and Canon people, well don't you feel weird showing up to events with smaller cameras and gear? No, I don't and in fact the retro look of the cameras have started more wonderful conversations than I can count and my back isn't gone by the end of the day. Don't be afraid to shoot micro four thirds. Yes, a full frame sensor will get a bit more dynamic range etc but if you know what you are doing these cameras will perform just as well. This cameras truly do put the fun back in photography for me and this lens is a legend. Happy shooting and sorry for my ramblings.
Along with the OM-d E-m1 this lens is incredible.
Fast, durable, weather resistant, simply tack-sharp
Worth the money and along with the MC-14 1.4 teleconverter made just for this lens the reach and quality are great.
