Light Lens

I haven't had many opportunities to use this lens yet. When I have used it I have been very happy with the image quality and the weight of the lens.

Best Second lens I have purchased for my OM em-10


from Herkimer, NY  -  Pro Photographer

Sharp corner to corner. Surprising detail at full extension. Fast focus; lightweight and adds almost no weight to the camera. Highly recommended. HT


great optics for a low price!


from EUROPE  -  Pro Photographer

The headline says it all. A light, friendly to use and nifty zoom.


Overlooked value


from Atlanta, GA  -  Pro Photographer

For the price, the lens body is no surprise. It's plastic and composite materials. The mount to the camera body is not metal. The lens shade must be purchased separately. BUT the optics exceed expectations. Sharp right up to the edge. Auto focus is fast. This is THE telephoto lens I will bring with me when I travel outside the country. It's so cheap it's almost disposable. It's so good it's almost pro quality. It's so light weight and compact it can travel in a vest pocket. I'm glad I gave this lens a chance.


Great second lens for Olympus


from Dover, PA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This lens was a great add-on to my standard kit lens (14-42). This lens 40-150 (effectively 80-300) is great for landscape, portraits and sports work.


I like this len


from Las Vegas, Nevad.  -  Photo Enthusiast

This len is very clear.


Good budget long zoom len


from Richmond, VA  -  Casual user

It's good for outdoor portrait and images are sharp even under poor light conditions. The only drawback is slow focus for video shooting.


Amazing for the price


from Bethesda Md  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

So, it is a plastic-mount, slow, not weather sealed, and cheaply made lens that delivers surprisingly good results. It is great for casual pictures and is very compact and light. If the lens was $500 I would give it three stars, but for less than $200 it gets four.

Light Lens


from Indiana  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I haven't had many opportunities to use this lens yet. When I have used it I have been very happy with the image quality and the weight of the lens.


Cheap looking, great shooting


from San Francisco, CA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

This is a lightweight, cheap telephoto zoom. The plastic exterior is not that great, except that it keeps the overall cost down. The zoom ring isn't particularly smooth, but the autofocus is very quick, and optically, it's quite good.




from San Francisco, CA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

The housing on this lens is comparable to the 14-42 II R kit lens. Serviceable, but lightweight plastic. The picture it takes are quite nice though. Past 120mm or so it struggles a little bit. The mechanical action is a bit rough, but works. It's a low-cost telephoto zoom that fits the bill for someone like me, who doesn't use these longer lengths that often. It's a good bang-for-the-buck lens.


Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

CARL H  Is a lens hood included?
RON D  Unfortunately, no lens hood is supplied.
Shopper  Does this lens work on an Olympus E-P2?
SIEW EE O  Yes, it works on EP2.
Rene G  Is this lens compatible with the Olympus e-410 ???
MARK M  I THINK the answer is no. THe E-410 has a four-thirds lens mount. The lens in question is a micro-four-thirds mount. There MAY be an adapter, but this lens will not, repeat--not, mount on the e-410. The lens-mount flange is a different distance from the image sensor.
