Smooth, Light and water resistant
This is an excellently designed lens with outstanding sharpness combined with a super light weight design. The manual focus is brilliant and smooth and works better than the competition. The ability to focus on close objects is also extraordinary.

As good as they say
Absolutely as good as they say, and still super with the MC-14 teleconverter. Image stabilization is superb, but good long lens technique still helps. One tip: remember to use the focus range limiter switch for fastest possible focusing.

Love this pro lens
Love the size and weight of this lens - with or without the 1.4x teleconverter the images could not be sharper. Olympus never disappoints with their quality of lens build. This is truly a PRO lens. Personally I like the retractable hood and have never had an issue with it. The lens has terrific reach and is great for my bird photography.

Truly a "PRO" Lens
First of all this is a heavy lens but not too heavy for a good 3-4hr shoot. The build quality is typical first rate Olympus. The retractable lens hood is a bit finicky but works well for the most part and is super convenient. Focusing is fast but slows down in low light or with the 1.4x converter. At f4.0 (5.6) it's not meant for low light and performs very well in bright light situations. The lens is very sharp and I have gotten very good results with bird shots that show excellent detail depending on the focusing distance. This along with the 12-40mm PRO are the best two lenses I own.

Excellent for Wildlife Photography
The lens is extraordinary for distant shots of wildlife even in relatively low light environments. The image stabilization is amazingly good which allows most shots to occur without use of a tripod. The only true flaw I see is not the lens, but the integrated hood. The hood can easily get stuck when extended and is not removable. The hood assembly design on the 40-150mm F2.8 is superior in how smooth it operates and its ability to be removed or replaced if damaged. If it wasn't for the poor lens hood design I would have given this lens 5 stars.
