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.
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).
Summary: I just shoot wedding photographs with the lense,quite powerful zoom, easy to handle,lightweight,but on con side,it has no manual/autofocus (MF/AF) option.so autofocus is a bit problem,but overall worth a money for this product for $121.95 at amazon.
Summary: This lens is both incredible and an incredible bargain. It is sharp edge-to-edge and has excellent color and contrast reproduction. This lens takes excellent pictures and you will not be disappointed. While many people can say this is great lens for the money, don't stop there.
Summary: Pro: * Great range * Light * Sharp * Came as part of a kit Con: * f/4.5 on the long end As mentioned this lens came with a kit along with the 14-45 f/3.5-5.6. I've used it for portraits, landscapes, macro (with the EX-25), and some sports.
Summary: The best budget zoom for the 4/3 system. Relatively fast and TOTALLY USABLE throughout its range. Takes decent outdoor/flash portraits on the wide end and is long enough to catch good action at my son's soccer games.
Olympus 40-150mm f/3.5-4.5 Zuiko Digital Zoom Lens - Used on E500 - A workhorse - Clean & sharp

Summary: Have owned an Olympus digital E-500 for many years now, and have purchased (and sold) several other brand name cameras along the way, but just keep coming back to the E-500 as my 'go to' camera.
Summary: Well if you're an amateur like me the first thing you'll need to get used to is the focus distance. You need to be at least 3 ft away to focus. But once you are three feet away you can still zoom in on the subject and get a practical macro shot.
Summary: If you recently purchased a new "four thirds" system camera (from Olympus, Leica, Panasonic, etc.) and are looking for a first telephoto lens, you can't go wrong with this one. It's MUCH faster than the most recent generation of 40 - 150 mm lens and has much better build quality.
