New double review on the 40-150mm Olympus PRO lens:

Tyson Robichaud writes:

In good light, or with decent contrast, this lens is fast to focus though, so situationally, it’s pretty damn quick.  It’s sharp, contrasty and has good fidelity at lower ISO’s which is where most folks will probably be shooting this for outdoor sports, wildlife, studio or outdoor portraiture or the like, and in those situations I think it will be a great addition to any micro 4/3 system shooter’s bag.

Thom Hogan writes:

Olympus has a real winner with the 40-150mm f/2.8. A very usable focal range, excellent optics, a really nice build with no real flaws in handling, and focus performance at Olympus’ state of the art means that this should become a classic m4/3 lens. Once Olympus has completed their initial Pro line (7-14mm f/2.8?, 12-40mm f/2.8, 40-150mm f/2.8, 300mm f/4), an E-M1 owner should be able to go from 14mm to 600mm equivalent in a four lens set that delivers one heck of a lot of performance in reasonably small packages.
