About this deal

The lens is also dust, splash and freeze-proof like all Olympus Pro lenses, ideal for taking everywhere, particularly outdoors where weather plays a role. Given that all Olympus compact system cameras – and the Panasonic GX7 – feature an in-body anti-shake system, it is not surprising that the Olympus M. focal ratio throughout, and while the 40-150mm is obviously one of the larger lenses in the catalogue, it remains compact for a lens for its class.

In this position, the focus ring stops when you reach infinity or the close-focus point, much like on a classic manual-focus lens. But it’s a pretty standard slotted design, so if you’re coming from recent big lenses from other makers, you’re likely to know the drill already. It's going to be a lengthy post / rolling review with a few images and may take a couple of days to add some things that I want to share. I found even though this is a telephoto, I find myself using it at its closest focal distance all the time at 150mm.When attached, it allows camera rotation, eliminating the need to tilt the tripod head for switching from landscape to portrait orientation or vice versa.

The lens balances very well indeed, even on my little EM10 (which I use with the small accessory grip). PRO lens is the first lens to feature a Dual VCM (Voice Coil Motor) AF system and the results are impressive throughout its versatile zoom range. No deposit is required and payments will be collected by direct debit in monthly instalments, the first instalment being collected 30 days after shipment of the product.

We were hard pressed to find any evidence of CA in the images – these are the absolute worst examples we were able to dig up. aperture is maintained throughout the focal range, a very useful feature and not just for shooting in low light.Separating the focusing mechanism into two lens groups controlled by individual linear drive motors makes AF performance extremely fast and, with no gears involved, nearly friction-free and incredibly quiet.
