Olympus 40-150mm f/4-5.6 ED M.Zuiko Digital review by Ocean

Pros: ???
Cons: to expensive for the quality, CA, no metall, cheap plastics

small and handy but I am not used to the extreme cheap-construction Level without lens hood and every few month I got dust between the lenses
Optics are good - the first half year, with a bit to much CA. With weekly practice it's getting worse.
The price is to high, it's just a cheap-starter Zoom.


Olympus can do much better.

Olympus 40-150mm f/4-5.6 ED M.Zuiko Digital review by awalzem

Pros: cheap, light, at some focal lengths very sharp, due to length can have nice blur at times, although sometimes rough
Cons: feels flimsy, zooms out ridiculously long, AF (on E-PM1) useless for moving objects

Just got this a couple of days ago. It's great for portraits, and for nearer objects at mid focal range, it's terrifically sharp. However, zoomed out on distant objects, I found it didn't resolve very well. Shooting moving objects didn't work at all, even at very high shutter speeds, but that could be my camera's AF. Still, as a budget long zoom and portrait lens, it's a winner.
