Product Overview

Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm F4-5.6 R is a telephoto zoom lens for Micro Four Thirds-mount. It covers the MFT image circle. Introduced by Olympus in 2011, it has 13 elements in 10 groups.
Like most zoom lenses, the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm F4-5.6 R is externally-zooming. Unfortunately, Olympus has opted to omit weather sealing for this lens, so owners should pay extra attention when shooting in incremental weathers.
As a telephoto zoom lens, the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm F4-5.6 R is well suited for landscape and portrait photography, though its relatively dark maximum aperture limits its performance for indoor sports.
