Olympus M. Zuiko Digital ED 14-150mm 1:4-5.6 Lens Review

 

Like all superzooms the 14-150mm uses a complex optical formula, with 15 elements in 11 groups including 3 aspheric elements (one of which is made from ED glass) to correct aberrations. But unlike others, it's a fairly lightweight lens, tipping the...

Relatively small and lightweight for its type ; Respectable image quality for a superzoom (very good indeed from 25mm to 45mm) ; Fast, practically silent autofocus ; Attractive bokeh (when you can get it)

Rather high chromatic aberration at each end of the zoom ; Corners rather soft at wideangle ; Slightly plastic build for the price ; Flash shadowing at wideangle ; Lens hood not included ; For Panasonic camera users, no optical image stabilization

The M Zuiko Digital 14-150mm F4-5.6 sees Olympus extending its Pen series lens range into superzoom territory, providing an upgrade option for compact camera owners who've grown used to having 10x or greater zoom ratios. Typically it's distinctly small...

Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 14-42mm 1:3.5-5.6

 

Excellent resolution, tons of detail in the shots ; Appealing, bright and punchy out of camera results and well optimized JPEGs ; Very clever collapsible kit lens that's small, but offers decent quality ; Unique retro design puts SLR quality into a...

Slow focus requires a more considered approach to shooting ; Some highlight clipping (and poor dynamic range at ISO 100) ; Low resolution screen that's hard to see in bright light ; No viewfinder ; No built-in flash (and the optional flash is expensive...

It's hard not to fall for the E-P1's charms; the unashamedly nostalgic design combines with true SLR quality in a remarkably pocketable package. The lack of flash and viewfinder will put some off, as will the relatively slow focus, but overall this...

Olympus have been involved in making reliable camera accessories for some time and there is nothing to suggest otherwise here. There is a small lack of additional features such as extended zoom functionality, but overall this unit gives a nice compact...

Lens Test: Olympus Zuiko Digital 40-150mm f/3.5-4.5

 

Olympus shooters looking for a moderate telezoom at a moderate price -- and with stand-out optical performance -- need look no further. This easy-to-handle 3.8X zoom, a 40-150mm (80-300mm equivalent), costs $240 (street) on its own and can also be...

REVIEW—OLYMPUS M.ZUIKO 17MM F1.8 LENS]

 

This lens is the latest addition to the Olympus range of premium prime lenses for the micro four thirds system cameras. It can be used on either Olympus or Panasonic cameras. The new lens is not to be confused with an older 17mm f2.8 unit. The new...

Optically and mechanically this lens is outstanding. There is very slight barrel distortion which is to be expected in a 34mm equivalent medium wide angle. From f5.6 we were satisfied with the overall sharpness of the image. The compact dimensions and...

It is a shame to have to trade off the lovely focus action that you get when the manual focus is selected on the lens with the loss of the manual focus assist ; VERDICT: For anyone who has owned and loved an Olympus OM camera this lens (and its...

For anyone who has owned and loved an Olympus OM camera this lens (and its companions in the m.Zuiko premium range) is a return to the good old days of brilliant, beautifully made prime lenses. And now we enjoy the added benefit of lightning fast auto...

Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 17mm f/1.8 Lens

 

A fast wide-angle prime lens with a classic focal length that suits travel, street photography and photojournalism.

We tested the review lens on two camera bodies, the PEN E-PM2 (which is reviewed separately) and the OM-D E-M5. It performed better on the latter camera so we've used those results as the basis for this review. Autofocusing was as fast as the camera...
