Olympus M. Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f/4.0-5.6 R
Zoom lens for Olympus PEN, OM-D, and other mirrorless cameras
Our take on the Olympus M. Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f/4.0-5.6 R by Crutchfield's Dave Bar
Compact, lightweight, and versatile lens
This compact Olympus M. Zuiko lens gives you great mid- to long-range telephoto shooting capability in a portable, lightweight package that tips the scales at a scant 6.7 ounces. It's the perfect lens choice to have mounted to your mirrorless camera when you're not sure what you'll capture next — a candid portrait of your child's face from across the playground, the closeup details of a spotted fawn grazing in your backyard, or a sunset on Maui.
With its quiet, Movie & Stills Compatible (MSC) autofocus system, this lens also excels at enabling you to gather excellent sound while capturing video. Of course, the superb optical performance you've come to expect from Olympus is still here, as well. An extra-low dispersion glass lens elements make your images as sharp and artifact-free as they can be.
