|Shoot crisp photos of far away scenes and objects with a high-quality telephoto lens. The Olympus M.Zuiko 40-150mm f/4.0-5.6 ED lens is a lightweight zoom lens that is easy to take on the field. The adjustable focal length and aperture help you achieve excellent clarity while capturing your subjects. This zoom lens is compact and easy to carry. Unlike many digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) lenses, this lens fits onto compact digital cameras, which lets you achieve amazing magnification with a fairly basic camera setup. The Olympus M.Zuiko 40-150mm lens offers a similar image quality to 80-300mm lenses for analog 35mm cameras. However, as it is compatible with digital cameras, it is a fantastic option for beginner photographers. Simply mount the lens on a compatible model and take excellent pictures without adding many other accessories. To adjust the focal length on the Olympus M.Zuiko 40-150mm f/4.0-5.6 ED lens, simply rotate the zoom ring to zoom the lens in and out. Although it is classified as a telephoto lens, you can use it for a variety of purposes. The 40mm focal length is actually smaller than the 50mm length required for a standard shot. This lets you take a wide-angle zoom shot, which takes in more of the background without having to step back from your subject. This comes in handy while taking landscape shots. Adjusting the zoom to 150mm lets you focus on a specific subject, which is ideal for capturing portraits on a location shoot, photographing architectural details, or shooting wildlife on the field. Although this lens is not designed for macro use, it can sometimes capture small objects at close range with excellent clarity. The aperture of this Olympus M.Zuiko 40-150mm f/4.0-5.6 ED lens is also adjustable. The f/4 setting allows lots of light into the camera without causing too much blurring and gives you a good depth of field for many shots. Expanding the aperture beyond the f/4 setting increases your depth of field, which increases clarity as you zoom. The Olympus M.Zuiko 40-150mm f/4.0-5.6 ED lens is tailored to fit the Olympus Micro Four Thirds system. The standard is compatible with several camera models from Panasonic Lumix and Kodak. The Olympus M.Zuiko 40-150mm f/4.0-5.6 ED lens is simple to use and lightweight, making ideal for shooting terrific photos wherever you go.|

Cheap kit lens with decent image quality.
I bought this lens as factory refurbished ex-display. Overall it looks good and was packaged nicely in a plastic bag and bubble wrap tucked inside a factory -like box bearing Olympus logo. Sold by an authorised seller as well. Unfortunately, the lens itself did not look pristine. While reasonably tight and clean outside it had some smear marks on it's front element that looked as if fingerprints were rubbed of in a hurry. Lenspen took good care of that, but on closer examination in bright daylight I discovered a small lint particle stuck to inside of front element and slight fogging ( contamination?) closer to outer edge of one of the inside elements. no way to get there without lens disassembly, and I am not fancy doing it myself. One cannot be too picky when it goes about a used lens though, and from my personal experience any noticeable impact on lens performance is very unlikely to happen with these minor imperfections. And this is exactly what I saw in my field test. I purchased the lens to be used with Olympus PEN Mini E-PM1. The camera recognised the lens and worked with it just fine. Images taken through the lens were good, with natural colours, decent contrast and acceptable overall sharpness that could be improved a lot in some image processing software, for example Adobe Lightroom. Image quality overall is not stellar, but what can be expected with plastic body kit tele-zoom. Definitely better in middle third of focal range ( i.e 80-120mm) than closer to extremes.Focusing can be slow and hesitant at long end of the zoom - but that has to do with the camera as well. All in all, lens lives to the tests and reviews that can be found all over the net. It is also feather light so it won't make the whole set much heavier while widening the camera's capacity a lot. Definite keeper for me.
Olympus Micro 4/3 Digital ED 40-150 F4.0-5.6 R lens
Surprisingly sharp across the 40-150 range. Using with Olympus E-PM2. Not the fastest, so need a tripod if you want to maximize image quality/minimize ASA at high zoom setting, but true to a degree of any high zoom lens. Plastic body, nice and light, but still has a solid feel. Since this is for a micro 4/3 format camera, I would much rather have the weight savings than a metal body.

A very sharp lens in bright light or on a tripod
Easy to pack and carry as it's an exceptionally lightweight lens. Not stabilised, so it's better suited to pen cameras, but is also ok with panasonics and a higher iso, but don't expect blur free photos inside or in low light outside with either camera. In good light, or on a tripod it can produce very sharp photos with minimal stopping down, and has quite nice bokeh. My main disappointments are that the zoom is so stiff that it can't be used during movies, and that Olympus doesn't package it with a lens hood.
As good as expected
I am a rookie with this type of lens and did not know quite how to use it. The research I did in advance was the basis of my purchase it and I really enjoyed the results in the pictures. Used it at Yellowstone and love my pictures. It took me awhile to get used to manually zooming in and out and changing the lens based on what I was taking pictures of, but once I got the idea that this is a zoom and not for close ups or wide angle landscapes, I did alright. Even when I was unable to zoom in as close as I wanted, when cropped the pictures are sharp enough that it doesn’t matter. They might even be better than more zoom because the shake factor is reduced. The images were clear without a tripod. I expect they will be better yet when I learn how to use the features of the camera. The shipper got it to me in plenty of time for my trip and kindly worked with me to fix a situation I created when ordering. A very good experience throughout.

Easy to carry
Easy to bring in a small bag. Too early too say if it is durable. Most photos acceptable+. May be a little unaccurate with focusing in sports photography (I must analyze this first - gx7 is a good small camera, but may not be the no. 1 choice for action photgraphing) All in all a decent lens. Seems to work well with video
