About this deal

Superbly built professional standard lens which is splash, dust and freeze proof, and complements the 12-40mm PRO series lens. The L-Fn button is pretty much where your thumb will find when you’re cradling the lens in your left hand.

If you were to shoot a small subject at minimum focus distance with the 12-40 at 40mm and the same object at 150mm minimum focus distance with this lens… you would get the same image roughly.

You mention a “direction-changer clamp” above with reference to the use of the really right stuff plate with the 40-150 mm F2. The thin body constructed by metal, constructed of rich 6 elements in 3 groups (1 HR lens) promises virtually no image degradation. By separating the focusing mechanism into two groups controlled by separate linear AF motors, focus speeds are faster and the friction-free movement is notably quieter to benefit video recording. The premium metal lens body incorporates 16 elements in 10 groups, including Olympus ZERO-coated HD, ED, EDA and – for the first time in an M. If the action is distant then you will get a few in focus, but if it approaches close enough to fill the frame you may become frustrated.

Pro is supplied with a lens hood which attaches to the front of the lens via the usual bayonet mount, but has a unique retracting design. A manual focus clutch mechanism is engaged by snapping the focus ring rearward, which also reveals a focus scale marked on the lens barrel. All Olympus Micro Four Thirds bodies employ built-in stabilisation with the most sophisticated five-axis system employed on the OMD EM1.

Combined with a teleconverter, it provides a high quality and high performance 112-420mm*1 telephoto zoom.

One thing I did notice is that the peak of center sharpness was very slightly off center, but that’s a fairly common problem to see these days. When I first saw the close focus distance and lack of a focus limiting switch, I was prepared to be disappointed moving from extremely close to extremely far subjects. Indeed, it was only when I was getting extremely close to small subjects that I even wanted a macro lens.If the loan is partially repaid within six months, the remaining interest will be adjusted to reflect the new balance. Below you can see these side by side, with a crop from each taking a closer look at the rendering of the specular highlights. If you need help deciding which camera and lens combination are best for you, then why not check out our specially selected camera packages. Pro telezoom is exactly as heavy – or lightweight, depending on where you stand – as the widely-known Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM lens, while covering a wider angle-of-view range and offering a full-stop brighter relative maximum aperture.
