The Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f2.8 PRO lens combines outstanding portability and professional performance with far-reaching telephoto zoom. Incredible clarity and resolution—sufficient to sharply capture a portrait sitter’s each and every eyelash—is visible from corner to corner in every image, dissolving to gorgeously soft, circular bokeh in defocused areas. A bright, constant f2.8 maximum aperture at every focal length from 80 to 300mm (35mm equivalent) delivers brilliant, prime-like image quality in virtually all lighting conditions.
Whether you’re capturing extreme sports or rare birdlife, never miss a moment thanks to the Olympus 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO lens’ cutting-edge Dual VCM (Voice Coil Motor) focusing system. By using two linear motors to move two lens groups simultaneously, the lens achieves markedly faster, more accurate focus in stills and video, as well as smooth and quiet operation.
Weighing around half the equivalent lens for a full frame DSLR camera, the Olympus 40-150mm f2.8 PRO lens is unrivalled in its portability. The lens’ compact, lightweight form makes it perfect for extended travel or handheld shooting. An inner zoom mechanism maintains the lens’ length even when you zoom in or out, giving you a highly stable shooting platform for even easier handling.
Dustproof, splashproof and freezeproof to -10°C, the Olympus 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO lens is built to meet the demands of professional shooters, whatever the shooting conditions. Specialised lens elements (including Extra-low Dispersion (ED), aspherical and High refractive index and Dispersion (HD) lenses) keep aberration controlled throughout the focal range, while ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) Coating on the lens’ surface thoroughly eliminates flare and ghosting to optimise clarity even in challenging (e.g. backlit) lighting conditions.
A host of convenient controls on the Olympus 40-150mm f2.8 PRO lens promote even greater usability. Instantly switch between manual and autofocus using the MF clutch mechanism (which enables pre-focusing so you can respond quickly to evolving scenes), assign frequently used functions to the L-Fn button for one-touch activation, and retract the included lens hood by simply sliding it back on the lens.
Increase your reach to 56-210mm (112-420mm full frame equivalent) using the included Olympus MC-14 M.Zuiko Digital 1.4x Teleconverter. Along with dustproof, splashproof and freezeproof performance this slim-profile extender gives you the benefits of a significantly larger lens, bringing distant subject even closer, but with minimal image degradation or extra bulk/weight.
