This lens looks like a joke. It's made of cheap feeling plastic, and zoomed all the way in, it resembles a Pringles can. Taking it out of the package I felt the rumblings of severe buyer's remorse, right up until I started shooting. Despite it's plasticky, inelegant construction, this thing has become one of my favorite lenses. There's shading in the corners when wide open at 150mm, but I was surprised how often I shoot without stopping it down - it produces reasonably sharp images at all ape...View full Review
This lens looks like a joke. It's made of cheap feeling plastic, and zoomed all the way in, it resembles a Pringles can. Taking it out of the package I felt the rumblings of severe buyer's remorse, right up until I started shooting. Despite it's plasticky, inelegant construction, this thing has become one of my favorite lenses. There's shading in the corners when wide open at 150mm, but I was surprised how often I shoot without stopping it down - it produces reasonably sharp images at all apertures, and, while not super fast, the optical quality is pretty great, and the bokeh is smooth for a telezoom. For the price, if you don't need IS in the lens, this lens is a good buy. Until I have $600 to drop on the Zuiko 14-150mm, this will probably be the lens I use the most.

The headline says it all. A light, friendly to use and nifty zoom.
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.
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.
This len is very clear.
It's good for outdoor portrait and images are sharp even under poor light conditions. The only drawback is slow focus for video shooting.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This lens is my favorite with my OMD. It gives me the richest colors I've ever had in my photos and it is so lightweight. I am so pleased with this camera and the lenses I've purchased with it!
