The latest generation of the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150 mm f4.0-5.6 R (35mm equivalent focal length: 80-300 mm) features an optimized design in a stylish black body. It's small, lightweight and flexible enough for everything from close-up portraits to long-distance scenes both indoors and outdoors. This high-power zoom is the perfect companion to your standard kit lens, and gets you closer to the action without being burdened by travelling with too much equipment.
It features an MSC (Movie and Still Compatible) focusing mechanism that is designed to deliver quiet and precise operation, for an affordable, high quality means to capture your life in still images or HD videos!
MOVIE & STILL COMPATIBLE MECHANISM
One of this lens's most interesting features is the unique-to-Olympus Movie & Still Compatible mechanism, or MSC. This technology provides amazingly fast - and nearly silent - autofocus operation. You'll really notice the benefit when you play back your HD video and the only thing you hear is the ambient background noise in the scene you were filming; what you won't hear is the sound of the lens moving as it changes focus. With MSC and a great focal length range, you can record everything from the big game to vacation footage with ease.
