I know this is an old lens but I picked one up recently for an unbelievable price. I was not expecting anything exceptional and did not really need the lens, however, experimenting with it during lockdown I have been blown away by the superb results from this lens. Being ancient, I still have the mindset that a tripod is essential for long zoom shots, not so with this lens, hand held in every experiment I tried the results were excellent. Well worth buying, I know there is a newer version of ...

I got this as part of package - I didn't really want it but it was just a few pounds for a longer lens that I thought I'd sell as I already had a Panny lens with the same spec plus IS.

I have ended up using the 40-150mm WAY more than I expected. I've gotten used to seeing at the distance this lens is good for. A lot of special shots can be attributed from my photos to this lens now. It allows me to compose things that normally could not be placed together in a frame because I can do it from a distance. Great value too @ $160.00.

Compared with some of the eye-wateringly expensive lenses being offered for M43 cameras, it is refreshing to find a budget option that punches above its weight. At the time of writing, the M. Zuiko 40-150 costs less than the equivalent of US$300 in many countries and has been offered online in the United States for as little as $105. I think most photographers would consider those prices to be more than reasonable for a telephoto zoom. So what do you get for those few dollars? You get a ...
