OM System M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f/4 PRO Lens Summary

OM System is breaking all the rules with the release of this M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f/4 PRO Lens. It accompanies the launch of the new flagship OM System Olympus OM-1 camera, together with the Digital ED 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO II Lens, with which it shares several class-leading attributes.

With an equivalent focal range of 80-300mm in full frame terms, the Digital ED 40-150mm f/4 PRO is the lightest and most compact telephoto on the market at launch, in part due to its retracting mechanism. Despite the broad zoom range, it weighs just 382g and measures a physics-defying 68.9 x 99.4mm, with a compact 62mm lens filter thread size.

The lens is capable of rendering superb results throughout the range, thanks to an optical design of 15 elements in 9 groups. This design renders high resolution detail, with thoroughly suppressed chromatic aberration and excellent contrast from the ZERO coating which has been used. OM System also included extensive weather sealing, to achieve IP53 performance when mounted on the OM-1 body.

With this type of zoom range and close 0.2m minimum focusing distance, users will be able to capture subjects as diverse as portraits and lifestyle shots, to action, wildlife and sports.

Key Features

  • Compact telephoto zoom lens with 80-300mm full frame equivalent
  • Superb rendering from 15 elements in 9 groups with 6 special lens elements
  • IP53 weather resistance when paired with a weather resistant body
  • High speed imager AF (MSC) system
  • Bright, constant f/4 aperture with 7-bladed circular diaphragm
  • Close 0.7m minimum focusing distance across the entire zoom with 0.41x magnification at tele
  • Cost effective 62mm filter thread

OM System M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f/4 PRO Lens in More Detail

Excellent resolution across the entire zoom range

The 40-150mm f/4 PRO lens from OM System uses the same fundamental structure as the M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm F2.8 PRO, which is well known for its high resolution, and incorporates an optical design with 15 elements in 9 groups (2 ED lenses, 1 Super ED lens, 1 HR lens and 2 aspherical lens).

An effective layout of special lenses helps to thoroughly suppress chromatic aberration, which tends to occur on telephoto lenses, and delivers high-resolution imaging from the maximum aperture value across the entire zoom range and frame while maintaining a compact and lightweight form. The lens also features ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating, thoroughly eliminating ghosts and flares for clear performance even in difficult conditions such as backlit scenes. This high-performance lens fully utilises the high image quality performance of the camera body even with High Res Shot mode.

The world’s most compact, lightweight model

This lens delivers unrivalled portability and an inner zoom system improves usability. A retracting mechanism makes this the world’s most compact, lightweight model with a fixed f/2.8 aperture, and 300mm equivalent (full frame) telephoto zoom lens. It measures approximately 99.4 mm long (124 mm long when in use) and weighs approximately 382 g, making it amazingly compact and lightweight.

The lens was designed with a focus on ease of use when shooting to which end it is equipped with a mechanism that makes it possible to retract and store the lens simply by turning the zoom ring. It also employs an inner zoom system which keeps the lens length the same across the entire focal range, suppressing centre of gravity changes while zooming in or out.

Using compact, lightweight lenses in the front drastically reduces any feeling of heaviness, eliminating the long lens barrel and weight at the front of the lens, which is common to telephoto lenses, making shooting easier and better-balanced.

Close focusing and macro capabilities

With a maximum image magnification of 0.41x2 and close focusing distance of 70 cm (at all focal lengths) users can enjoy excellent macro capabilities with the OM System 40-150mm f/4 PRO.

At the telephoto end, close-up shooting is possible up to a maximum image magnification of 0.41x.

Despite being a telephoto zoom, this lens also possesses superior close-up shooting performance for a wide range of applications. Focus Stacking is also supported, which captures multiple shots at different focal positions, and then automatically composites the shot. When paired with a compatible camera, this mode lets you take macro photos that are completely in focus from the front to the back.

Our Verdict

With comprehensive weather resistance and -10ºC operation, coupled with industry leading lightweight properties, this lens is testament to OM System’s commitment to developing exceptional MFT lenses. As a telephoto zoom with a bright constant aperture users can expect excellent low light performance, aided by a new arrangement of glass elements inside the barrel. This also makes the OM System Digital ED 40-150mm f/4 PRO a pleasure to use, being well balanced and easy to move around quickly. This will prove particularly beneficial for those who shoot fast moving subjects, including sports and wildlife, for which it is intended.

Results are extremely good, drawing on several special lens elements to reduce aberrations and control sharpness and rich detail. OM System also added a fluorine coating for easy cleaning and maintenance as well as their ZERO coating to combat flare and ghosting with backlit subjects.

The versatility of this telephoto zoom is enhanced by a short minimum focus distance which remains a constant 70cm throughout the entire zoom range. This delivers excellent tele-macro capabilities with a magnification of 0.41x at the long end.

If you are considering the new flagship OM -1 camera there’s no doubt this lens can keep up with the high resolution capabilities and will also excel with the focus stacking feature. If you shoot any of the subjects for which this lens is intended, it’s impossible to beat and will surpass your expectations.
