The outdoor traveller lens

  • Summary: The M.14-150mm is the M4/3 equivalent of the 28-300mm in 35mm format lens. It is the kind of flexibility you are looking for a one zoom package when you are travelling especially in outdoor country. The M.14-150mm is a compromised design using low maximum aperture. My best results have been obtained at its widest setting (re : 14mm) in daylight. I have never experimented vignetting results even when using the lens hood.

Great Travel all in one lens!

  • Summary: I have had this lens for a few months, and find I like it more the longer I use it. Without the VF 2 I was getting some fuzzy shots at the long end, due to holding it at arms length with such magnification (equal to a 300mm on 35mm). When I use it with the VF 2 my images are sharp throughout the range. Yes, I see a little darkness in the corners sometimes, but has not been a significant problem or concern.

Good general purpose lens

Owen Smith, WEX

  • Summary: I previously had an Olympus E-420 with the Olympus 18-180mm four thirds lens. On holidays or walking around with my parents I rarely had time to change lenses, so the 18-180 got a lot of use. Now I have an Olympus E-M10 and I am using the 14-150mm in the same way, it's the lens on the camera at the start of the day and gets by far the most use. The extra width of 14mm vs. the previous 18mm is a huge bonus, and I don't mind the slight loss at the telephoto end.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Flexible, Lightweight, Quick Focus, Sharp Focus
  • Cons: Tough To Attach

  • Summary: A very interesting option when you want to carry only one lens. The lens performance is really very good in all the zoom range.

best multipurpose/ utility lens

Peter Bailey "nordowns", Amazon

  • Summary: I tend to use prime lenses for applications when quality, lens speed etc are the prime requirement. However there are many occasions when I don't want to carry a bag full of lenses but have the convenience of a wide range of focal lengths available in a single zoom. I call this my 'journalist' lens and, so far, haven't missed a shot. The speed of focus and overall crispness throughout the focal range is very good.

  • Excerpt: E-PL3 как бы бесплатно к нему приложена...)  Пыху китовую оликам надо переделать - под него - повыше. Объектив довольно удобен. Если не считать ужасное макро и мыло при открытой диафрагме на 150 - почти мечта!
  • Pros: Два объектива в одном! Хорошо держит контровый свет. Лёгкий.
  • Cons: На 140-150 мылит. Макро никакое. Вспышку экранирует на широком угле. Диафрагма 20-22 - мылит(дифракция).

Mooie allround lens

  • Excerpt: Heerlijk om zoveel zoombereik bij de hand te hebben. Werking is duidelijk en simpel. Wel heb ik het gevoel dat de camera een tikje minde snel is met deze lens dan de 14-42 lens.
  • Pros: Volledig zoombereik, Altijd de juiste lens bij de hand
  • Cons: Groter en zwaarder

  • Excerpt: Купил в ките с Е-ПЛ1 совсем недорого. Попался экземпляр подмыливающий на ФР 110-150 мм. По случаю получилось сравнить и выбрать еще из двух. Выбрал резкий во всем диапазоне фокусных. Еще покупал такой же объектив дочери с рук. По резкости на длинных фокусных где-то посередине, между моими худшим и лучшим. Вообщем надо выбирать при покупке. До ФР 70-90 мм все экземпляры одинаково резкие.
  • Pros: Большой диапазон фокусных, от пейзажей до портретов и не пугливых птичек. Небольшой вес, компактность. Быстрый автофокус. Возможность снимать псевдомакро на ФР 150 мм с 45 см.
  • Cons: Мылит/размазывает углы на ФР 14-20 мм. Дешевый на вид пластик и конструктив (в сравнении с оптикой 4/3). Небольшая светосила (но по другому и не может быть при всем прочем). Очень высокая цена в рознице (б/у с рук в два раза дешевле). Отсутствие бленды в комплекте.

getraut, gebraucht zu kaufen

Sabine S., Amazon

  • Summary: Habe nun erstmalig bei Amazon ein gebrauchtes Produkt gekauft. Es kam in einem einwandfreien Zustand und in Originalverpackung zu mir. Das Objektiv ist genau dass, was ich gesucht habe, um auf Reisen nicht permanent mit dem Objektivwechsel beschäftigt zu sein. So entgeht einem einfach nichts mehr. Es hat Grenzen in den äußersten Bereichen, die fuer ungeschulte Augen kaum erkennbar sind.
