Pro Grade Optics. Everyday Portability
The new M.ZUIKO 40-150mm f2.8 PRO is a compact, full-featured zoom featuring premium metal construction and professional-quality lens elements. It's light in weight and fully sealed for weather protection, delivers super-sharp edge-to-edge image quality, and boasts the world?s first Dual VCM autofocus mechanism. This lens is an excellent complement to your fast primes and 12-40mm f2.8 PRO.
An Unsurpassed Combination Of Mobility And Image Quality
The latest addition to the recently introduced Olympus M.ZUIKO PRO Series of lenses is the 40-150mm f2.8 PRO. This lightweight zoom - which, at less than two pounds, weighs almost half as much as some comparable lenses - is also compact (at just over 6 inches long); dust-, splash- and freeze-proof; features a revolutionary Dual VCM autofocus mechanism; and - most astonishing of all - delivers extremely sharp edge-to-edge optical performance that actually exceeds our universally acclaimed SHQ (Super High Quality) Four Thirds glass.
Internal Zoom Maintains Constant Length, Improves Shooting Stability
The quest for gasp-worthy long shots leads many photographers to grapple with massive zooms. Enter the new M.ZUIKO ED 40-150mm f2.8 PRO (35mm equivalent focal length: 80-300mm). At less than two pounds and a constant 6.2-inch length (lens movement is internal), it's easy to maintain a stable shooting position. And with a minimum focusing distance of about 19 inches over the entire zoom range, you can even go macro. So leave the bazooka at home - this lens is both portable and versatile.
The World's First Lens With Two Autofocus Motors
Smooth, fast autofocus is the key to sharp images. The 40-150mm f2.8 PRO doubles down with an industry first: Dual VCM (voice coil motor) AF. Separating the focusing mechanism into two lens groups controlled by individual linear drive motors makes AF performance extremely fast and, with no gears involved, incredibly smooth. The lens also features a bright, fixed f2.8 aperture and a customizable L/FN function button, which you can program to activate the camera settings you use most frequently.
You Don't Have To Baby This Lens
With its premium metal build quality, weather-proof construction and sophisticated internal glass, the 40-150mm PRO lives up to its "professional" tag. It incorporates 16 lens elements in 10 groups, including 3 ED, 1 EDA (Extra-Low Dispersion Aspheric) and 1 HD, and - for the first time in an M.ZUIKO lens - 1 Super EDA lenses for greatly reduced chromatic aberration across the entire zoom range, and boasts Olympus's ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating to help prevent ghosting and reduce flare.
Professional Build Quality
We know that serious shooters need the highest quality equipment, so we built the 40-150mm f2.8 PRO zoom accordingly. The premium metal lens body incorporates 16 elements in 10 groups, including Olympus ZERO-coated HD, ED, EDA and - for the first time in an M.ZUIKO lens - Super EDA glass for significantly reduced chromatic aberration, ghosting and flares.
Splashproof. Dustproof. Freezeproof.
Sometimes the harshest conditions produce the most dramatic photo opportunities. With 11 separate seals to keep out moisture and dust, the 40-150mm f2.8 PRO is re ady to take on the elements. You don?t have to baby this baby!
Headline About Zoom Range
At less than two pounds and a constant 6.2-inch length (lens movement is internal), the 40-150mm f2.8 PRO combines with OM-D or PEN camera bodies to create a very stable shooting platform. And its fixed f2.8 aperture is bright enough to capture sharp images across the entire zoom range.
Enhance Your Zoom.
A 1.4x teleconverter is available for the 40-150mm f2.8 PRO that extends its focal length to a whopping 210mm (35mm equivalent of 420mm) for those really long shots. You can also get a protective filter, lens hood and lens pouch to keep your investment safe.
No Detail Spared
The bundled lens hood has been marvelously designed to collapse back onto the lens for easy storage. When extended, the locking mechanism will fully support the weight of the lens and camera body.
