More details on the Olympus M.Zuiko ED 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO
Micro Four Thirds Mount: The M. Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm F2.8 PRO medium telephoto zoom lens features pro-grade optics and premium metal construction. It has a Micro Four Thirds mount, and is compatible with the Olympus PEN and OM-D interchangeable lens cameras. The lens includes a tripod collar that allows you to attach a tripod at the lens (instead of at the camera) for better balance and control.
Rugged Construction: The lens is made to withstand the harshest shooting conditions. It has 11 separate seals to keep out moisture and dust.
Dual Voice Coil Motors: The 40-150mm zoom lens sports the industry's first Dual VCM (voice coil motor) Auto Focus mechanism. By separating the focusing mechanism into two lens groups, controlled by individual linear drive motors, the lens can deliver fast, quiet, and accurate auto focusing.
MSC: This high-quality lens has a built-in MSC (Movie and Still Compatible) inner focusing mechanism for fast, quiet focusing, even while shooting movies.
