Admiringlight posted the full 40-150mm PRO lens review:

While the lens is predominantly stellar, there are a few things to watch out for.  The lens flares badly when the sun is included in the frame or just out of it, and the autofocus can sometimes have trouble in dim light on an Olympus E-M5, but overall, I really enjoyed shooting with the 40-150mm.  It’s got a fantastic range, excellent optical quality and a robust build quality that oozes professionalism. It is well worthy of the PRO label etched into the lens barrel.

Luminous Landscape posted their Olympus 40-150mm lens review and writes :

The image quality, the build and overall experience of using these lenses won’t disappoint you.

It’s funny how things change and how much they stay the same.  Many years ago (during the  seventies) back in the film days I moved to Olympus from my big Nikon systems.  Their original OM series cameras specifically OM-3 and 4 were ground breaking as far as size and performance.  Now it seems we are seeing this evolution happen all over again.  My full frame Nikon DSLR system hasn’t seen action for a number of months now.  Olympus has won me over with its feature rich E-M1 camera and Pro series lenses.

They’ve also posted a video on Vimeo. Kevin Raber takes a look at the Olympus micro four thirds Pro lens line and introduces the new 40-150.


SLRgear reviewed the Olympus MC-14 1.4X M.Zuiko Digital Teleconverter and says :

It’s also extremely small, lightweight, fully weather-sealed and doesn’t negatively impact image quality or AF speed to a significant degree. If you own or are planning to own the Olympus 40-150mm ƒ/2.8 Zuiko Pro or 300mm ƒ/4 Zuiko Pro lens, the MC-14 teleconverter is a no-brainer accessory to have in your kit.
