The superlative in super-telephoto
A Pro lens like no other in its class ‑ the M.Zuiko Digital ED 150‑400mm F4.5 TC1.25x IS PRO (300‒800mm*) sets the standard in super‑telephoto performance, portability and precision. Featuring a built‑in 1.25x teleconverter, this zoom lens goes up to 500mm (1000mm*) shooting ‑ or add the optional MC‑20 Teleconverter for an ultimate 1000mm (2000mm*). 5‑axis Sync IS offering up to 8 EV steps of compensation with a compatible camera ensures your photos remain sharp. And because photo assignments can take you anywhere, Olympus‑renowned weather sealing is a given. Just like the highly precise and fast autofocus.
Ultimate optical performance
The M.Zuiko Digital ED 150–400mm F4.5 TC1.25x IS PRO is the culmination of Olympus optical technologies cultivated over many years. A total of 28 elements in 18 groups includes large-diameter EDA lenses and 4 Super ED lenses for excellent clarity across the entire zoom range at a constant F4.5 aperture. Olympus-unique Z Coating Nano reduces ghosting and flaring for clear, high-quality images in difficult shooting conditions.
Powerful in-lens stabilisation
Made for handheld photography, this Pro lens is equipped with in-lens image stabilisation while supporting 5-axis Sync IS, which boosts correction to up to 8 EV steps with a compatible camera. It enables accurate, clear subject capture at any zoom range. Previously difficult super-telephoto shots are now easier than ever. *According to CIPA standard. When attached to OM-D E-M1X, with yaw and pitch applied to camera, half-press IS set to Off, and focal length set to 150mm.
With a teleconverter built into the lens, the ED 150–400mm F4.5 TC1.25x IS PRO extends the focal length by 1.25x for 1000mm* shooting at max. F5.6. The built-in teleconverter’s on/off lever with lock makes switching quick and easy. Extend the focal length to up to 1400mm* with the MC-14 or 2000mm* with the MC-20 Teleconverter while retaining the high optical performance of the master lens. *35mm equivalent
Amazing range of shooting
From super-telephoto to telemacro, the ED 150–400mm F4.5 TC1.25x IS PRO covers a wide range of shooting from 150mm to 500mm (300mm- 1000mm*). Not only can it zoom in close on far-away subjects, the focal length can be adjusted to suit your shooting needs, resulting in exactly the composition you have in mind. For capturing nature’s creatures and flora, the minimum focusing distance of 1.3 metres and a magnification of 0.36x (0.71x*) are ideal. This lens also supports Focus Stacking.
Highest autofocus results
No matter how fast your subject is, get the shot you want in the quality you crave with this super-telephoto Pro lens. As you would expect with any renowned M.Zuiko Digital lens, it delivers fast and highly precise autofocus across the entire zoom range. This is thanks to Olympus-unique lens thinning technology, which makes focusing lenses lighter. There is virtually no change in focusing speed, also when you use the built-in teleconverter.
Reliable weatherproof housing
Olympus-renowned dustproof, splashproof and freezeproof sealing to the IPX-1 standard is also a given with this Pro lens. On the front lens is the Fluorine coating, which makes the smooth surface harder to scratch and easier to wipe off. The white heat-resistant coating reflects infrared sunlight, keeping optical performance consistently high even in hot temperatures.
*When paired with a compatible dustproof, splashproof and freezeproof camera.
Optimal controls for handheld shooting
Focus on your subject and shooting while changing settings smoothly. The M.Zuiko Digital ED 150–400mm F4.5 TC1.25x IS PRO super-telephoto is equipped with controls. These include a rubberized zoom/focusing ring for fine control, a pre-set focus memory for saving your favourite focal position, a switch for changing between several functions, and a Focus Limiter switch, which lets you quickly move between 3 levels of autofocus.
The ED 150–400mm F4.5 TC1.25x IS PRO is one of the lightest in its class at less than 2 kg in weight – giving you the freedom to be as flexible as possible. Robust magnesium alloy combines with lightweight carbon fibre reinforced plastic to maintain strength and control. The inner zoom system and focusing system remains the same length throughout the zoom range to ensure the lens balance is always stable.
