Impressed by the cheap Oly 40-150 f4-5.6

Yesterday I was testing my Olympus 40-150 lens which I purchased like new for 100 euros.

Here is a (lame) shot at 150mm wide-open just for the sake of testing the sharpness of the lens.

The first photo is the full image while the second one is a 100% crop of the bird.

I have to say I'm quite impressed by the sharpness I get from this dirt cheap lens

It's very small and light. A no brainer when you want to be able to shoot longer while not breaking your back!

Full image, shot at 150mm wide-open (f/5.6), ISO 320

100% crop
