I purchased the ED 40-150MM f4.0-5.6 as part of my kit with the E-600 DSLR. The lens is a perfect companion. It is lightweight and very sharp, performing well at all aperture settings. I have been using this lens routinely for travel, cityscapes, sports, and street photography and love it. It doubles as an excellent portrait lens and will not disappoint.

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.
