Constant f/2.8 apertureAPERTUREAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Aperture refers to an opening inside the lens, similar to the iris of your eye, that changes in diameter to control the amount of light that enters a camera. Aperture is expressed in f-stops: the lower the number, the larger the aperture, e.g. f/1.4 is larger than f/8. A larger (or wider) aperture allows more light to pass through the lens to the sensor (film) as a picture is taken, particularly useful in low-light conditions. A larger aperture also produces a shallower depth-of-field, and thus more background blur., even when zooming

Using an inner focusing mechanism, the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm Pro Lens has a constant f/2.8 aperture for optical performance even when zooming. The lens is made up of five ED lenses, aspherical lenses, and HD lenses for suppressing aberration from a distance to extreme close-ups. 

  • Portable: Its outstanding portability makes hassle-free to shoot a picture exactly the way you want in any location.
  • Compact and lightweight: The lens is surprisingly compact and lightweight. It weighs is only half of an equivalent package in full-frame DSLR systems.
  • Get as close as 70cm from the subject at all zoom ranges: Dual VCM focusing system achieves outstanding closest focusing distance performance of 70cm from the image sensor (approx. 50cm from the front lens) at all zoom ranges while maintaining excellent image quality.

ZERO Coating thoroughly eliminates ghosts and flareFLAREOccurs when a point light source such as the sun or an artificial light (that is brighter than the rest of the scene), hits the front element of a lens resulting in a lack of contrast, haze, or unwanted semi-transparent objects being present in the image. You can avoid lens flare with a lenshood or filters, however, the effect is also useful for bringing artistic elements into an image, such as sun rays peaking out from behind a rock formation. s

The ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) Coating that is applied to the lens surface eliminates ghosting and flare. Thanks to the ZERO Coating, you can capture clear image quality even under challenging conditions like a backlit setting.

Work in almost any environment

The M.Zuiko Digital 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO lens has a reliable dustproof, splashproof and freezeproof (-10°C) construction is capable to take pictures under any shooting environments.

Focus faster

The lens offers faster-focusing performance and improved accuracy. These are achieved by Dual VCM focusing system (floating lens focusing technology) that uses two linear motors that is for the first time in any lens. The system is capable for both still images and movies.

A linear motor moves two lens groups simultaneously

Dual VCM focusing system (moving two lens groups simultaneously with two linear motors) improves focusing speed as well as close-up shooting performance.

Intuitive operation

The MF clutch mechanism provides instant switching between autofocus and manual focus

The lens is equipped with the MF clutch mechanism that enables switching between autofocus and manual focus mode with one quick action. This mechanism makes pre-focusing possible for quick shooting.

Assign frequently used functions to the L-Fn button

L-Fn function button provided on the lens. You can assign one of your most frequent use function, such as pause autofocus function as well as other functions available from camera custom settings.
