Product Features in Detail
Designed for the Serious Photographers
The Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm 1:4.0-5.6 R (35mm equivalent focal length: 80-300mm) is designed for Olympus's Micro Four Thirds mirrorless interchangeable cameras. Despite its versatile focal length span the lens is relatively small and lightweight, making it a useful companion for a standard kit lens without travelling with too much equipment.
Equipped with MSC ('Movie & Still Compatible') technology helping to deliver not only high speed auto focusing but also whisper quiet operation, attaching the Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm 1:4.0-5.6 R to your PEN camera ensures that better than ever before sound quality is a given when recording High Definition (HD) movie clips in stereo. The otherwise distracting background 'whirr' of lens mechanics has been dampened.
High speed AF
The AF benefits from the internal focusing mechanism used for conventional interchangeable lenses being improved by incorporating a screw drive mechanism instead of gears that cause noise. High precision plastics further ensure its quick, smooth, silent and moreover accurate AF drive. The MSC mechanism is therefore ideal when tracking a moving child or pet and making the most of the world-beating FAST AF (Frequency Acceleration Sensor Technology) deployed by the latest generation PENs, including the E-P3, E-PL3 and E-PM1.
High-res image quality
Producing clear images and superb sharpness the Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm 1:4.0-5.6 R further enhances the high performance of the Olympus Digital PEN Micro Four Thirds system cameras. When coupled with a Micro Four Thirds Live Mos sensor it helps to deliver the image quality of a DSLR in a compact and easy to use camera, and allows Digital Pen owners to discover the fun and expanded creative possibilities of using an interchangeable lens camera system.
Reliable Filter for Optimal Performance
The PEN series' built-in compact dust reduction system, in the form of Supersonic Wave Filter (SSWF), adds to the lens' performance by eliminating the particles that can otherwise intrude and attach themselves to the camera's sensor when swapping lenses. The SSWF is a transparent filter located between the camera's shutter and sensor.
Lightweight and compact with Superb Performance
Proving the adage that good things can come in small packages, the Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm 1:4.0-5.6 R weighs a mere 190 grams, has a filter diameter of 58mm, and offers dimensions of just 63.5x83mm. It's as portable as your PEN camera is and amazingly lightweight with it, so you can concentrate on getting great photography and videos rather than fumbling with clunky kit.
Excellent Focusing Mechanism
Utilising an internal focusing mechanism, high-speed contrast auto focus (AF) is offered, making it perfect for shooting portraits, and, with a broad focal range, subjects in the middle distance too. Closest focusing distance is an impressive 0.9 metres, or 90cm.
Sophisticated Constuction for Better Photography
Raising the benchmark for compact lenses, the Olympus M ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm 1:4.0-5.6 R boasts a lens configuration of 13 lenses in 10 groups, one distortion removing ED element and HR element, plus an angle of view of 30 - 8.2° and a closest focusing distance of 0.9m or 90cm. The 7 circular aperture diaphragm helps to deliver natural background blurring to provide pictures and video with that professional feel, with a maximum aperture of f/4.0 at the wide end and f/5.6 at the telephoto end.
