Pros: Excellent construction (like all pro zuiko lenses on the other hand) 80-300 2.8 constant if this is not a pro !

Cons: Bokeh a little nervous when the subject is too close to the background I am a possession of m10 Mark 2 and Em5 Mark 2 and on the 10 having no chance of grips like the 5 it is a bit heavy and un manageable . Paraluce a little peculiar but still not as bad as many say

Opinion: A lens to have in your backpack! You have at your disposal an 80-300 with constant opening at 2.8 and I do not tell you the enjoyment you feel ! It costs a bit but in the end not even so much ! For the quality it offers ... as mentioned above I do not recommend it to those who have the m10 because it is a bit uncomfortable being still 900 g

Pros: Image quality (also multiplied), compactness and weight (compared to FF lenses), brightness, tropicalization, does not extend and does not rotate as the focal length and focus changes, including easel bracket, built-in lampshade, pleasant blur, minimum distance of focus "almost macro" (and with 2x magnification doubles)

Cons: compactness and weight (compared to m4/3 lenses), paraluces a delicate thread on the appearance

Opinion: I've had it for a few months now and, although I also have FF kit, it's probably the best lens I've got. Excellent chromatic performance, sharpness and contrast excellent already to TA, associated with another shorter lens (12-40mm f/2.8 pro the top, but also a fixed of your choice) allows you to cover practically all the needs in a lot of occasions (sports, nature, animals, landscapes, even portraits, even wanting!), especially if you do not want to give up the quality, but you also need (or even just want!) compactness and lower weight compared to the larger formats. If you then associate it with the MC-20 2x (150g), you can really get to 600mm equivalent f/5.6 (as a field angle) with only 0.9kg, keeping virtually unchanged the image quality and speed of the AF! Your back thanks! The only "limit" referring to the only world m4/3 (where it still remains a unique lens) is the size, yes compact compared to FF lenses, but not lowercase in general (to say, the 35-100mm f/2.8 is practically half, although of course it does not reach 150mm). If you know this aspect and you don't care, it's a lens that can't be missing in a m4/3 set

Pros: Everything, perfect optics, with the good iesof the excellent MDF of 70 cm, which with the MC 14 still decreases...

Cons: a little big and heavy for the M43 proposal, in certain blurry situations a nervous hair

Opinion: I took this amazing optics with a lot of hesitation, I switched to the M43 especially for the small footprints... and here we say that we are at the limit! My first choice for the Telezoom M43 fell on Pana 35 100 2.8, spectacular, did not make me regret at all the 70 200 Nikkor from which I came! The 40 150 seemed too big and heavy, but then I started to hear opinions, look at shots and attracted by the spectacular reduced United yield DMF (very comfortable for my Close Ups) I decided to try it! Well guys a show, my favorite optics, and I'm not just talking about the M43... it's pretty much perfect with a spectacular TA yield (common to almost all M43 lenses) THE treat is the use as a Close UP optic, wrapped when I do shooting sessions with 40 150 and 60 macro, if I do not look at the metadata I do not understand if I took the photo with one or the other! Impressive.... Even the use for views is spectacular, sharpened impressed, thanks to the Stabilization Oly, practically the easel is almost no longer used. It is also great for portrait, even if wrapped has a fuzzy nervous hair, if one takes it for that the 35 100 pana maybe it's a better hair! It doesn't bother me, since I do the portraits with Sigma 56 and with the 75... In conclusion, it is a recommended optics, an optic that is worth the whole system! Wrapped I try to make comparisons with the other systems, but on the 40 150 I always block... there's not any for any! p.s. last update, now with MC 20 you get to 600mm equivalent.... Amazing!

Pros: Sharpness, blur, color rendition.

Cons: The hood as far as functional whenever I open it I'm afraid of breaking it.

Opinion: This lens, when compared to most others, is neither Compact nor lightweight but you have to think that we are facing a 80-300 equivalent and 2.8 aperture throughout the range, is a great lens, is also a pro so not even cheaper if worth every euro spent . The images which offers are razor-sharp and blurred and very nice, like the 12-40 the construction is great, it is sealed and has a snap ring that allows you to easily switch from auto to manual focus, there is a function key customizable. Like all pro the minimum focusing distance of 0.7 m with a magnification of 0, 21 x and can be exploited to make pseudo macro. Perhaps the only flaw is the hood, the idea is ingenious and comfortable, the hood is always mounted and runs over the target, the achievement makes it though a bit delicate.

Pros: 300 to 2.8, no one like him

Cons: anything

Opinion: Switching from the FF to the M 43 is a bit traumatic, because you think that nothing is better than the FF SLR, but then look and try the mirrorless world and find this gem that has the incredible ..., no objective starts from 80 to get at 300 remaining at 2.8, none weighing less than 1.5 kg, but it also amazes the optical quality of the final image to which you can easily add the 1.4x, bringing the mm to 420, professional stuff. Only one big car was missing, but it arrived in 2018 .., the Panasonic G9. I consider this view and the machine a winning combination, both in sport and in nature, but also excellent for everything that can be considered digital photography. And it costs less than half the FF, weighs 13 and has a reduced volume of half ..., it is anti-dust and water being tropicalized, in short, this optic is professional at all levels even in the price ... Try it to believe it.
