Focus

  • Summary: For some reason the 40/150lens does not work with my camera the 300EVolt. The 14/45mm works perfect. The 40/150 doesnt have a metal faca like the 14/45. I'm not a pro so I don't know if that's the problem but I'm not able to use it.

OLYMPUS 40-150 f/3.5 Zuiko Digital Lens

Kerry C. Fitzgibbons, Amazon
17 April 2013
  • Summary: The marketing advertisement on Amazon was misleading ; it does not fit an Olympus Pen E-PL1. When I asked on the blog before purchase about compatibility for the Olympus Pen E-PL1, the responses were contradictory. When I received it, it obviously did not fit. The website advertisement has a compatibility chart, and it does not have the PL 1 on the list to say yeh or neigh. I say neigh. I returned the lens, which I am happy to say was easy and smooth.

Significantly better

Regilyn P. Luga "cottage gis", Amazon

  • Summary: When I got the lens from Amazon, I mounted it onto my E410 and began my testing. My standard testing aid (which I found to be very effective) is my old tube type TV. This TV when tuned to a blank channel, is perfect as a test tool because the pixels are quiet large. I took 2 shots with this lens and right away I can see that the TV pixels are very sharp, compared to the 40-150 f4 kit lens!

Very high value. Outstanding lens for the price.

Phil @ Amazon, Amazon
28 April 2011
  • Summary: Is this the greatest lens ever? No. Is it the greatest for the price? It just may be. After deciding on going the four-thirds route to break into digital photography, I bought a used Olympus camera bundle with kit lenses (the older 14-45mm and this 40-150mm). It looked like I was going to be taking mostly indoor candid shots, so I researched and compared the 14-45mm and 14-54mm lenses.

Old v. New: Old Wins!

W. White "Googlyelmo", Amazon
24 February 2011
  • Summary: This lens (Zuiko 40-150mm f3.5-4.5) is no longer in production by Olympus, but still widely available. I considered this lens and the new model (examining each closely in person, and shooting test shots with an E-520, on several occasions in local photo stores) which replaces it, and chose this lens hands down. Pro: *Equal or better image quality to the new model: chromatic aberration, barrel distortion.
