  • Olympus 14-150mm f/4-5.6 II M.Zuiko Digital ED

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    Sharp, fast focus, small, and light weight

    Considering this lens falls into the all in one lens category, this is an excellent lens. I purchased this lens for my E-M5ll. I already have the 12-40 2.8 Pro and the 40-150 2.8 Pro and both are outstanding lenses and this lens exceeded my expectations for an all in one. Wide open it has excellent center sharpness at all focal lengths with corners being slightly soft. Stopping down improves corners. There is a little purple fringing in high contrast areas, but it's very minor when looking at magnified raw files. It has full time manual focus override, but no clutch like the Pro lenses. No lock for the zoom, but it has no zoom creep when pointed up or down. This lens easily outperforms my Sigma and Tamron all in ones I have for my Canon cameras. If all copies of this lens perform this good, you won't be disappointed. I just wish it started a little wider.
