By on

Here are several new Olympus 150-400mm f/4.5 PRO lens reviews that have been published on the web. Designed for Micro Four Thirds system cameras the lens announced with a very expensive price tag as $7500 at Adorama and B&HPhoto.

According to Olympus this lens has greatly exceeded expectations and received so many pre-orders. See the statement below for details. The Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 150-400mm F4.5 TC1.25x IS PRO is a high- resolution, super telephoto zoom lens that is equipped with a built-in 1.25x teleconverter and covers a wide focal length of 300-1000mm equivalent.

Most of the reservations for “M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 150-400mm F4.5 TC1.25x IS PRO” scheduled to be released on January 22, 2021 have been made by a large number of customers. It is not expected to be delivered on the release date. We would like to express our sincere gratitude for the large number of orders we received, and we deeply apologize for the time it takes to deliver the products. (source: Olympus Japan)

Mirrorlesscomparison published a new Olympus 150-400mm PRO lens review:

The Olympus 150-400mm Pro is an impressive lens, of that I have no doubt, but it comes with a price that doesn’t go unnoticed, so let me try to answer the question I wrote in the introduction: is it worth it, or has Olympus gone too far?

From a micro four thirds user perspective, a lens tagged at $7500 (or £6500 / €7150) is quite the jump from anything else that has been released before. For those who have invested in the system not only for the portability but also for the possibility of buying quality gear without breaking the bank, it can come as quite the shock.

From a Canon or Nikon user perspective, the high price might not come as a surprise. The 800mm lens I compared it to can be found for $13,000. The Nikon version is 3K more expensive. The 200-400mm f4 and 180-400mm f4 with the built-in teleconverter are also priced above 10k. So suddenly, the cost of the Olympus lens doesn’t look all that bad.

From Imaging Resource conclusion :

In the end, yes, the Olympus 150-400mm f/4.5 IS Pro very expensive in and of itself, but it’s also very, very good. Lenses for serious wildlife photography are often quite pricey and are a serious investment, and the Olympus 150-400mm is no exception. However, when compared to several of its full-frame counterparts, the 150-400mm Pro is both reasonably priced and incredibly versatile. If you want to slim-down your wildlife gear, and free yourself from tripods and monopods, the lightweight Olympus 150-400mm Pro lens is worth serious consideration.

The Olympus M.Zuiko 150-400mm F4 TC1.25x IS Pro will be released in late January 2021 for $7500 at Adorama and B&HPhoto. See Best Micro Four Thirds Lenses
