Fast, powerful, and exciting—the adjectives that describe the kind of shots you can take once equipped with this OLYMPUS M. Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f/4-5.6 R MICRO 4/3 Lens – SLVR also describe the lens itself. Sure, it’s built to be able to handle all sorts of action, what with its smooth zooming and just-as-smooth autofocus. But it’s also attractive, thanks to a lightweight design and easy interchangeability that ensure you can get as much use out of the lens as possible. In all, there are few zoom lenses here at Adorama that offer the same degree of quality at a moment’s notice quite like this Olympus 40-150mm lens.



  • Action-ready. A lens has to be action-ready, whether you’re photographing someone moving around in the studio or taking a zoomed-in action shot of a live game. But what exactly does a phrase like “action-ready” really mean? Well, when it comes to the Olympus 40-150mm lens, it means that you’re going to be able to grab your trusty zoom lens and take a quality, accurate shot within a moment’s notice. That means you won’t have to be surprised or startled when a subject like a wild deer appears on the horizon; you’ll just have to have the lens handy.
  • Handle closer shots. Everyone knows a zoom lens is important if you’re going to be photographing subjects that are far away. But a lens that can also handle closer shots with crispness? Now that’s something to behold. So behold the Olympus 40-150 lens’s ability to handle even close-range subjects instantly, thanks to a wide telephoto range that gives you the versatility to handle distant birds as well as close-by portraits. If you’re attending a live event, you’ll have all of the zooming power to capture everything, no matter how far your seats may be from the stage.
  • The lightweight design means that this telephoto lens isn’t something that you’ll have to lug around with discomfort. Truth be told, the photography industry has moved past the idea that bulky and expensive means better. A lightweight lens is better than a heavy one, especially if the lightweight one is capable of the same kind of imagery as the heavier option. Our advice? Stick with the lightweight lens. They’re just as capable, and much easier on your back.
  • Accessories are nothing to sniff at, either. We at Adorama love a good accessory. And with this lens, you’ll receive a lens cap, a lens rear cap, an instruction manual, a warranty card and the Olympus warranty itself, which means that you’ll have everything you need to protect your new favorite lens no matter how often you get outdoors with it—just don’t start throwing it around like a skipping stone and you’ll likely have this lens for many years to come.

From aperture to autofocus to angle of view, this OLYMPUS M. Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f/4-5.6 R MICRO 4/3 – SLVR has everything you could hope for from a zoom lens. The main challenge? Finding subjects worthy of this lens for as long as you’ll use it.

Surprisingly great

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...

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.

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

By

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!

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

Overlooked value

By

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

By

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.

Good budget long zoom len

By

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

By

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

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

By

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.

Questions about this item:

Bill L  How does this lens compare, quality wise, to the Panasonic 45-200?
ROBERT G  I own this lens and, by happy accident, ALSO own the 45-200 Panasonic. This lens is lighter, smaller, easier to handle, and at least as sharp at 150 as the Panasonic at 150. The Panasonic, however, is the size of a DSLR consumer zoom, such as the Nikkor 55-200 and not very compact at all. It handles like a DSLR lens, so negates some of the convenience factor of the m4/3 system. If you have an Oly EP/L/M-x or Panasonic GF3 compact body, the 45-200 will not balance well on it. If you have an Oly OM-D or Panasonic GH2, G3, or G5 body, the 45-200 will balance well. I owned the 45-200 first, found it awkward on my Oly EPL-1 body, bought the Oly 40-150, and now hardly use the 45-200. Hope this helps.
Bill L  Thanks I have the G2, not sure what the diff is from a GH2 in body size.
