Olympus 150mm f/2 Zuiko Digital review by Ocean

Ocean, slrgear.com
30 December 2012
  • Summary: very sharp - even with converters - much to like about it - but I would prefer SWD-AF we will need this lens for mFT!
  • Pros: extreme sharp, good construction, even very good with converters
  • Cons: no SWD-AF, cheaper plastics

Olympus 150mm f/2 Zuiko Digital review by MartinM

  • Summary: Now, thats my lens. The 300 f/2.8 I can get for free when I need it. Stellar performance. 300mm of reach with an aperture of F2 is really cool. Not speaking about the price I paid for. After adjusting the Front-focus on my E-5, putting in -4, this lens performs outstanding. IQ is fantastic and AF is fast an accurate. It size makes it very portable. I can put it side by side in my Lowepro Fastpack 350, with 12-60 and 50-200 I still got to test the EC-20.
  • Pros: F2.0, weather sealing, IQ, size, weight
  • Cons: nothing really

Best lens of the system

  • Summary: This lens is the first reason to buy the E-system. Top image quality, bright view finder, and still compact. The perfect walk around lens in an urban setting. It's effectively a 300mm, but it's still compact. The build-in image stabilization of the E-5 and the fast autofocus allows for sharp images with narrow depth of field at 1/100 sec shutter speed. Sharpness from edge to edge at all apertures.

Olympus 150mm f/2 Zuiko Digital review by genotypewriter

14 June 2010
  • Summary: I like super-long teles and I've also used the ZD 300 2.8 too but the 150 f/2 was a more satisfying lens to use for general shooting. Even the general apperance of the lens is great. The bokeh, sharpness and colours were all very very good. This would be the first lens I'd buy if I get a FT camera. All nice things aside, one still has to think about the practicality of such a lens.
  • Pros: My favourite prime on FT
  • Cons: Not the most sensible choice if you only need a 300 f/4 (see details)

Olympus 150mm f/2 Zuiko Digital review by RRJackson

22 June 2008
  • Summary: There are certain lenses that can constitute a reason to own the accompanying camera system. This is one of those lenses. At under six inches in length and under three pounds it's about half the size of most 300mm f/2.8 lenses, as well as being a stop faster and providing excellent results wide open with the DOF associated with f/4 on a 35mm lens. Using the in-body image stabilization on my E-3 I can shoot blur-free photos with this lens at 1/30th of a second.
  • Pros: Compact and light (when compared to 300mm f/2.8 lenses), beautiful bokeh, sharp wide open
  • Cons: Expensive. No SWD version available.

  • Summary: A very good tele lens, high contrast and very sharp. Can be used with TC-14 and with TC-20 without visible loss in quality, even with maximum aperture! So you can get an very good 2,8/210 and a very good 4/300, too!
  • Pros: Fast lens with F=2, Very good optic quality, Fast AF
  • Cons: Heavy and expensive but there is due to physical laws
