Perfectly designed for professional use, the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40‑150mm 1:2.8 PRO is offering you a fast tele photo zoom which is portable as never before. It combines perfect optical quality with a light weight and compact housing. It comes with a sliding lens hood which can slide up and down to reduce flare and protect the lens.
Like the E-M1, the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm 1:2.8 PRO (80-300mm) zoom lens is dust, splash and freezeproof – and standout in the pro class. ‘Too long, too big and too heavy’ is the professional verdict on the DSLR competition, so Olympus made this lens more compact and lighter than a typical full-frame lens with comparable characteristics and scope of performance.
They also made it a record-holder – by incorporating the first-ever focusing system to power two high-grade lens elements using dual linear motors. Which means it’s extremely quick to focus. What’s more, it’s very quiet, so it’s ideal for shooting easily frightened wildlife as well as other fleeting subjects, for example, at sports events, but also perfect for weddings. With a minimum focus distance of just 70cm at all focal lengths, a dedicated Fn button, manual focus clutch and a sliding, protective lens hood, the new M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm 1:2.8 PRO (80-300mm) is both versatile and easy to use. With a very large zoom range and a maximum aperture of 1:2.8 at all focal lengths, its optical performance is likewise outstanding.
Pristine pro optical performance
Now there's a Micro Four Thirds telephoto lens that brings out the absolute highest imaging quality the camera has to offer. Extremely compact and lightweight, the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40–150mm 1:2.8 PRO offers amazing portability for a lens of this pro class. This powerful lens also delivers fast autofocus, a 50cm minimum working distance at all focal lengths and more essential pro features perfect for wedding, wildlife and sport photography.
Full mobility at all times
Even though this M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40–150mm 1:2.8 PRO lens is a telezoom lens with immense speed, it ensures high mobility due to its compact size and lightweight design. As it is also dust, splash and freezeproof like all OLYMPUS Pro lenses, this lens is perfect for taking along everywhere, no matter where your photo trips take you.
Crispy details – hi-res quality
Besides the incorporated inner zoom system and the sliding mechanism, this M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40–150mm 1:2.8 PRO lens comprises Super ED and HD lenses for best-ever image quality. Within the image's centre as well as at its edges, smooth circular bokeh combined with a high resolution and pin-sharp details will leave you impressed.
The M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40–150mm 1:2.8 PRO features the world's first Dual VCM (voice coil motor) AF: two individually controlled linear drive motors make AF performance extremely fast and incredibly smooth. It also features a bright, fixed 2.8 aperture and an L-Fn button which you can customise with your most used camera settings.
