Great All-Around Lens

I bought this lens (refurbished from Olympus) to go with my OM-D E-M10 body (also refurbished). It looks and works just like new; worth the savings. I will keep this short by saying that I agree with some of the other reviews in that there are some limitations to this lens (but really I think that's true of just about any lens with this range). There is very noticeable barrel distortion at the very wide end, but lets face it, that can easily be corrected with most any software. I'm very happy with the overall sharpness; I got a shot of a bee on a flower (fully zoomed to 150mm and hand held) and it is actually very sharp. I had the 14-42 & 40-150 with my old E-620 and it seemed that as soon as I switched lenses, I would need (or want) the one that I just took off. Now I always have the range that I want in small package.

A novice photograher like myself....

enjoys this photo lens. I bought the E-PL1 a few years back which came with a 14-42 mm lens. I felt that I needed something extra for distance and just general photo shooting. This lens does just this for me. I have been able to use my camera's editing tools to zoom in on a crop dusting plane in the air around my town and a hot air balloon show in Ohio. I would love to attach the Darth Vader helmet balloon. I have noticed that when I do get to the end around the 150 mm, it does get blurry and doesn't focus as well. That being said is the only problem I have with the lens itself. I would say this is a good everyday lens for general shooting.

I thought it was good until I tried a couple of primes

And then I sold it.
It does not measure up to the primes. Of course that is reasonable.
On this small sensor you need absolutely the best optics in front. The small sensor and this super zoom are just too much and the image quality takes a beating.
For now at least to get image quality that is comparable to the prosumer DSLRs you need to go to primes. The PRO zooms may change that but for now this lens is just too soft.

Handy but compromised.

The long range is handy because it avoids frequent lens changing; however it is a huge compromise.

The lens tries to cover to long a focal range and that builds in compromise. At 300mm this lens is NOT that sharp. I used it last week to shoot hummingbirds and the lens was not a sharp as my friend's who was just two feet away.

Chromatic Aberration can be a problem. If bright light is coming through trees, I see a thousand little flares of blue yellow light. A simple algorithm would correct that if Olympus built it into the camera, but Olympus does not. Panasonic does on their micro 4/3rds, so I wish Olympus would too.

I'd rather have a prime 300 mm (600mm in full frame terms.) for wildlife shooting. I don't think Olympus makes that for the OMD-EM5 but I will have to research that.

The outdoor traveller lens

The M.14-150mm is the M4/3 equivalent of the 28-300mm in 35mm format lens. It is the kind of flexibility you are looking for a one zoom package when you are travelling especially in outdoor country.

The M.14-150mm is a compromised design using low maximum aperture. My best results have been obtained at its widest setting (re : 14mm) in daylight. I have never experimented vignetting results even when using the lens hood. It may be have been auto-corrected by the camera post-treatment software as many modern cameras do now.

The handling is good since the lens is light and have a moderate size. The so-call « plastic » (polymer) construction is well made considering the price-point of the lens.

Color rendition when using it with the EP-3 was respectful of the real scenery.

Since the low maximum aperture of the M.14-150mm, I agree with other reviewers to use the electronic viewfinder (VF-2/3) with the PEN series to get a better stabilized combination.

I recommend the M.14-150mm for a one-zoom option in particular for outdoor traveler in open space.

My Favorite Lens

I like the range and use it for most of my photographs. The only two lenses I carry most of the time are this and a 75-300 although I do occasionally use a 500mm lens for extreme distance.It is just too convenient to do without.

the Go-To travel lens

This adds a bit of bulk to the Pen, especially the smaller ones, but the range and functionality are great. Combine this with one of the f2.8 or faster primes and you have a solid day / night combo that won't weigh you down and will preform very well. I have 12,000 photos to prove it.

Nice

I gave the lens a real workout in a dusty, smoking outdoor environment - a Civil War re-enactment. Photo subjects were from 30 to 500 feet away. Olympus Pen E-P3 body and VF-2 View Finder. No hood used but did attach a Quantaray DMC-1A filter. Shot 300 + photos in one afternoon's time. No vignetting noted. I did not shoot directly into the sun, but did shoot at such an angle where I fully expected flare. No flare noted. Depth of field was exceptional.

Sorting through the photos, I found no throw a ways due to poor focus, movement blurs, or flare. I did have some throwaways due to composition and a few because of exceptionally high contrast between subject and background.

I contrast this lens review with similar Canon, Vivitar, and Nikon lenses, I've owned. Some in the 35mm film format; others in 35mm digital lenses.



It works for me.

14-150 lens on the PL-2

On the PL-2, the pop up flash leaves a large shadow when at the wide end, therefore not an all around lens ....
