40-150mm MK1 very underrated lens
6

The Olympus MK1 40-150mm f3.5-4.5 tele-zoom is a kit lens but a very underrated lens. It delivers nice sharp images and is a ruggedly constructed lens with a metal lens mount and is made in Japan. It has a very pleasing bokeh too.

I don't use it very often but I was glad I had it with me on a recent visit to South Africa's Pilanesberg Game Reserve.The shot of the little bird I took on an earlier visit to South Africa but also with the same combo.

Do please click on the images to appreciate the full detail.
