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
Cons:- Max. F / 4-5.6 diaphragm is an extremely compact lens. Using the camera flash (Olympus o-md e-m10 mark ii), the lens shadow appears in the photo for the most wide-angle focal lengths .
Opinion:I bought this lens together with the car (olympus o-md e-m10 mark ii) in November 2015 and can not disassemble it ... it's a handyman I always have behind and that thanks to the stabilization of the car body does not make me feel Too flawed for diaphragms f / 4-5.6.rnI have not had any problems with the ergonomics that I find excellent, walking disappears in my hand, I do not even have to wear the camera on the shoulder strap.rn its weigh is perfect for walking, going up and down By public transport, with my car body disappearing and reappears in the bag or backpack at the moment.rnI used it in the rain without the slightest problem.rn the hood (supplied) mounted to the reverse not from problems with the zoom while for the mass Manual focus must be disassembled. Rn I've never had excessive problems in focusing on the night. Rn What is missing? Nothing.rn my vote? 9
Pros:Compactness and lightness considered the 28-300mm equivalent focal, weather sealing, ergonomics.
Cons:Not excellent sharpness over 100mm, sufficient brightness, lack zoom lock.
Opinion:I chose this point to have an all-around in the mountain walks, where you have the need to do a scene with wide angle, how can you have the need to photograph a 100 meters away deer. In the field of versatility so excels beyond comparison. At longer focal it lose some sharpness, but it is always much more than acccettabili levels. The only drawback that drives me crazy is the lack of zoom lock (present instead in the Tamron 14-150 which is not weather sealed): in the mountains harbor the camera hanging by a special support to the walls and on time after a while 'I find myself way with the zoom all extended downward. I noticed, however, that going walking in the most inaccessible places, while walking on trails or roads fairly even jokes this phenomenon greatly decreases. Excellent value for money, will never take away from my "arsenal".
