This is an inexpensive and good lens that allows me to get great shots from a distance. I use it on my EM-5 Mark II and the image quality is great. I mainly use it for wildlife photography but it also works well for other types of shots. This is my first experience with Olympus cameras and I am very impressed. I have been using this lens for about 3 months and would definitely recommend it.

Olympus has always produced very fine lenses. The ED 40-150mm f4.0-5.6 from Olympus is another example of great performance for value.

Hello, I'm a enthusiast photographer. I started taking pictures when I was 10 years old, and used to make all my processing in house. With the arrival of the digital era, I went for Olympus. This lens came as a kit lens, next to the 14-42mm, and a E-410 body. Is a great lens, specialy in this price range. On a 4/3 you get a 80-300mm equivalent, and this is fantastic. The image qualitty is good, not impressive, but optimal for a standard lens! At high focal distances, the image is quite soft, and some chromatic aberations apears. Also haunting is a problem in the same conditions. I strongly recommend this lens, is not the greatest made by Olympus, but the price makes it a great deal and a good value. The lens is made in high qualitty plastic, with a rubber band for manual focusing, and you have the sensation of a more expensive lense when you take it in hand.
