From PhotoReview conclusion :

Without integrated stabilisation, this lens is better suited to Olympus cameras than Panasonic’s M4/3 models (apart from the GX7), because the Olympus cameras have IBIS (In-Body Image Stabilisation) built in, which compensates for camera shake by shifting the entire sensor.  Consequently, we  tested this lens on an OM-D E-M5 camera.

From Photo.net conclusion :

Overall the Tamron 14-150mm f/3.5-5.8 Di III Zoom Lens, (compare prices) is certainly a strong contender if you want one small, light, versatile lens for a micro four thirds body. Such a combination will give you significantly better image quality than a typical compact digital camera with a small sensor, while being significantly smaller than an APS-C format DSLR with similar coverage lens.

From ePhotozine conclusion :

If you own an Olympus Micro Four Thirds camera, which includes sensor-shift image stabilisation, then there isn’t a better value superzoom available for your camera. This is especially true as this lens delivers decent sharpness, despite it’s 10.7x zoom range.

  • Good sharpness for a superzoom lens
  • Versatile 10.7x zoom range

Tamron 14-150mm f/3.5-5.8 Di III Cons

  • Dark corners at 14mm (when shooting raw)

Tamron 14-150mm F/3.5-5.8 Di III (model C001) is a superzoom lens for Micro Four Thirds cameras, offers a 28-300mm equivalent range and uses a stepper motor for silent autofocus (including during video recording).
