Lens Test: Olympus Zuiko Digital 40-150mm f/3.5-4.5
16 December 2008
Excerpt: Olympus shooters looking for a moderate telezoom at a moderate price -- and with stand-out optical performance -- need look no further. This easy-to-handle 3.8X zoom, a 40-150mm (80-300mm equivalent), costs $240 (street) on its own and can also be purchased as a kit lens with the Olympus Evolt E-500...
Conclusion: With modern lenses, even the cheaper ones, producing results that could only have been dreamed about a decade or two ago, this model from Olympus, although no slouch, is not that outstanding.
Pros: Good build quality for class, Good control of optical nasties, Metal mount
Cons: AF a little noisy, Quirky manual focus method, Size and weight larger than APS-C opposition.
