Optics designed for performance
It’s an ideal lens for a wide range of telephoto shooting. Whether you’re shooting a single tree or an entire forest on a mountainside, you’ll get clear, crisp images across the entire zoom range. If you need to take a 80MP High Res shot, no problem. You’ll get edge to edge sharpness without any of the aberrations that usually come from using a telephoto zoom lens.
15 elements in 9 groups
M.Zuiko makes some of the world’s finest glass and has a global reputation for exceptional image quality. Our 40-150mm lens is no exception. You’ll find 15 elements arranged in 9 groups to deliver superior resolution. There’s HR, Super ED, ED, and Aspherical lens all working together to capture images with sharpness from the center to the edges.
ZERO stands for Zuiko Extra Low Reflection Optical Coating. But what it really means is that you won’t get any unsightly ghosting or flares in your photos. It’s just one more way we help deliver world-class image quality.
When your lens gets wet, you need to clean it before taking the next shot. A fluorine coating helps you get rid of it quickly and cleanly. One wipe and it’s gone. No streaks or waterdrops left behind. You’ll wipe your lens quickly and more efficiently so you’ll get back to shooting faster.
It’s only small in size
The 40-150mm uses an advanced piece of technology that does two jobs: keeps the lens compact while giving you all the benefits of a powerful telephoto. An inner zoom construction keeps the length of the lens the same at all focal lengths even while using the zoom and the lens is extended. It’s the secret to keeping the lens portable to carry and enjoyable to use.
