The following opinions have been automatically translated with Google Translate.
Pros:Flexibility, tropicalization, compactness and lightness. Fast and precise focus.
Cons:Softness at all focal lengths, but especially after 60/75mm.
Opinion:It is compact and light and is often located at just over € 300. Very convenient for travel, includes hood. It can be a great travel companion. Unfortunately the sharpness did not satisfy me, it is inferior to the Panasonic 12-60 (not Leica) and much (but much) lower than the Olympus 40.150rII, the cheap and plastic one. Clear that it is only one goal, so the race is unequal against two. But once you see what you do with cheap plastic is very difficult to accept the shots "smudge" of 14-150 II.
Cons:If you assume that it is a Made in China kit quality, no one
Opinion:I kept it mounted on an OM-D-EM1, which certainly could not express image quality, but the results were still more than enough. I got to try it on an OM-EM10 first series, and the quality was much better. Scuretto, but not so much to be an equivalent 28-300, also considering that it is coupled with an M4/3 sensor. Noisy, not even that much, but this is the era in which the human race has fixed itself that the if the grain is obtained with analog is beautiful and vintage, while if obtained with digital it is ugly and bad. In conclusion, it is a good compromise, with a dignified quality, good workmanship, which resists the weather well (better to lift the cap when it rains, otherwise it tarnishes), which is purchased at an affordable price, which allows good fun. If you are fixated with noise, extreme brightness and other photographic physios, it is good not to buy it, but if you want to have fun photographing, waiting for the pro series, and changing lenses is a problem, then it is the perfect goal.
Pros:Mythical all-make, weight, easy and intuitive
Cons:Slow and noisy focus, not very bright (but you know by buying it)
Opinion:I find it a great all-to-do, I use it for almost a year as the only oby on my Em10MK2, and allows you to range from wide enough wide to the landscape portrait, pity the low light that makes up so much the ISO losing definition. I am still satisfied with the purchase and at the limit in the future I will evaluate a pure wide angle (the 7-14 PRO type) But this I will keep because too comfortable... never change optics and you do well or apples all
Pros:Practical, good quality up to 100mm, tropicalization, extremely low weight
Cons:Poor brightness, lack of zoom block, slow autofocus, poor sharpness after 100mm and bad at 150mm.
Opinion:I claim that I bought an Olympus E-M10 MarkII with the 14-150 to get rid of the heavy weight of the Canon 6D on my hiking trails from the neck, aware of the advantages and disadvantages of this machine and of this goal. Goal achieved?? I would say yes, the lens is light and in a long hike (7/8 hours) not particularly annoying, the quality found up to 100mm is more than acceptable and in good light conditions, as always happens in the outside, comes to have a very good quality and personally I was very pleased with it ... Then there are the limits that are not few, but I find them more than acceptable for the use I do. In low light conditions, even taking low ISOs, it knocks the image a bit, it suffers tremendously from the counter light, even if it behaves beniny with the warm lights of dawn and sunset, it suffers tremendously the flare so much that it has to avoid it accurately, walking so often, it often happens that the zoom gets annoying (buta mechanical lock) and when it comes to catching animals on the fly, moving, the autofocus is so slow that most of the time the animal has run away and you still have to shoot. Despite all its limitations, I like it, I'm more than happy and I could only change it with the 14-100 PRO but it costs exactly twice ...
Pros:Dimensions, sharpness up to 100-120mm, Weight, versatility, Autofocus.
Cons:Nothing that is not already known: not very bright (it is already known at purchase), sharpness at very high focal lengths.
Opinion:I bought it as a handyman for my M5 mark II and I must say that it did not disappoint my expectations. For about the same price at the time I bought in my kit Canon, the equivalent Sigma 18-200 contemporary, paid more or less the same price as this, but I must say that there is really no comparison.rnAutofocus is always fast and precise, even in low light conditions. I use it for a while and rarely could not focus. The Sigma made me damn.rnThe sharpness is really good up to 100-120, after there is a bit 'of degradation. Nothing alarming, I took good pictures even at 150mm.rnOf course is a bit 'scuretto, but this is something known from the technical data, not a defect.rnThe construction seemed good, it is very solid.rnrnHere my full review: https://www.mondomirrorless.it/2018/04/07/recensione-olympus-14-150mm-f-4-5-6-tuttofare/rnrnVoto: 9.rn
