Answering the prayers of pros, and adding even more variety to the Olympus PRO range, the M.ZUIKO 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO zoom lens is dust, splash and freeze proof - making it stand out in the advanced photography market. 'Too long, too big and too heavy' is the professional verdict on the DSLR competition, so Olympus made this lens more compact and lighter than a typical full-frame lens with comparable characteristics and scope of performance.

They also made it a record holder - by incorporating the first-ever focusing system to power two high-grade lens elements using dual linear motors. Which means it's extremely quick to focus, making it well suited to wildlife and sports genres. With a minimum focus distance of just 70cm at all focal lengths, a dedicated Fn button, manual focus clutch and a sliding, protective lens hood, the 40-150mm is both versatile and intuitive to use.


With a large zoom range and a maximum, constant aperture of f/2.8 at all focal lengths, its optical performance is likewise outstanding, so expect beautiful bokeh and crystal-clear images with fine details suitable for blowing up to larger poster-sized proportions.

At less than two pounds in weight and with a constant 6.2-inch length (lens movement is internal), this advanced lens - when combined with an OM-D or PEN - creates a very stable shooting platform.

For anyone in need of even more zoom power, the newly released 1.4x MC-14 teleconverter is included with the lens and boosts the zoom range to a 35mm equivalent of 420mm. At just 15mm deep, it's a lightweight, portable addition to the serious photographer's kit.


The Olympus OM-D E-M1 is the perfect partner for the lens, both are weatherproofed and stylish, and are just as at home out shooting in the elements, as capturing high fashion in the studio.
