Professional quality telephoto shooting is now more portable than ever with
the introduction of the Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm f2.8 PRO lens
(80-300mm in 35mm equivalent). This latest Olympus lens is the first telephoto
in the M.ZUIKO PRO series that features a dust, splash and freezeproof
construction, durable enough to withstand the rigors of professional shooting,
when combined with the Olympus OM-D E-M1.
The M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm f2.8 PRO lens maintains a constant f2.8 aperture for bright, superior optical performance that meets the needs of professional photographers. It incorporates the world's first focusing system to power two high-grade lens elements using dual linear VCM (Voice Coil Motor) motors, for quiet, fast focusing on subjects such as fast moving subjects at sporting events. This lens is also perfect for wedding or event photography. With a minimum focus distance of just 20 inches from the front of the lens at all focal lengths, a dedicated Function button, manual focus clutch and a sliding, protective lens hood, the new M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm f2.8 PRO is versatile, portable and easy-to-use. An inner zoom mechanism allows the lens to maintain its portable size of just over 6 inches.
Two Is Better Than One
Smooth, rapid autofocus is a crucial factor in image quality. The 40-150mm f2.8 PRO's innovative, industry-first Dual VCM (voice coil motor) AF delivers. Separating the focusing mechanism into two lens groups controlled by individual linear drive motors makes AF performance extremely fast and, with no gears involved, nearly friction-free and incredibly quiet.
Professional Build Quality
Olympus knows that serious shooters need the highest quality equipment, so they built the 40-150mm f2.8 PRO zoom accordingly. The premium metal lens body incorporates 16 elements in 10 groups, including Olympus.
ZERO-coated HD, ED, EDA and - for the first time in an M.ZUIKO lens - Super EDA glass for significantly reduced chromatic aberration, ghosting and flares.
Splashproof. Dustproof. Freezeproof.
Sometimes the harshest conditions produce the most dramatic photo opportunities. With 11 separate seals to keep out moisture and dust, the 40-150mm f2.8 PRO is ready to take on the elements. You don't have to baby this baby!
Headline About Zoom Range
At less than two pounds and a constant 6.2-inch length (lens movement is internal), the 40-150mm f2.8 PRO combines with OM-D or PEN camera bodies to create a very stable shoot ing platform. And its fixed f2.8 aperture is bright enough to capture sharp images across the entire zoom range.
Enhance Your Zoom
A 1.4x teleconverter is available for the 40-150mm f2.8 PRO that extends its focal length to a whopping 210mm (35mm equivalent of 420mm) for those really long shots. You can also get a protective filter, lens hood and lens pouch to keep your investment safe.
No Detail Spared
The bundled lens hood has been marvelously designed to collapse back onto the lens for easy storage. When extended, the locking mechanism will fully support the weight of the lens and camera body.
