Camera bodies come and go, but some lenses transcend time. The Olympus 150mm (300mm eq.) f/2 Zuiko is just such a lens, and it seemed only fitting to pair it up with two of the most formidable camera bodies in the current Olympus family in the PEN-F and the E-M1 Mark II.

This is, of course, an older Four Thirds lens and needs an adapter in order to mate with the modern Micro Four Thirds mounts. The adapter does however allow for the use of autofocus, and it is actually fairly fast and accurate on these two newer bodies. But it's the image results that are the big deal, and you simply can't get a 300mm equivalent focal length at the generous f/2 aperture from any other current Olympus offering.
