Dust, splash and freeze-proof, the Olympus 40-150mm lens with Micro Four Thirds fit features a maximum f2.8 aperture and delivers outstanding performance throughout the zoom range, even in low light. The lens incorporates a new focusing system which powers two high-grade elements using dual linear motors for ultra-quick and near-silent focusing. The lens offers a 70cm minimum focusing distance at all focal lengths.
The Key Features:
F2.8 constant aperture
Versatile, telephoto zoom lens
For professional wildlife, sports and wedding photography
Compact, lightweight go-anywhere lens
Ultra-fast, near silent focusing
Dust, freeze, splash-proof construction
Micro Four Thirds mount
1. Superior image quality, with the fixed f2.8 aperture at all focal lengths
This lens achieves a compact, lightweight and high performance by taking advantage in this product of the hallmarks of the Micro Four Thirds System standard to achieve a maximum aperture of f2.8 at all zoom focal lengths and cover a telephoto range of 80mm to 300mm (35mm equivalent). To achieve compact, lightweight lens with optical performance exceeding that of the heretofore highly regarded Four Thirds System standard Super High Grade (SHG) lens, the lens employs such glass materials as the Super ED lenses, the ED or HD lens*2 as well as of EDA*3 and other aspherical lenses. The latest design technologies were also incorporated in developing the lens, such as making proactive use of ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) Coating to thoroughly eliminate ghosts and flare. As a result, with a maximum aperture at all zoom focal lengths the lens provides the high Olympus image quality that satisfies professional standards.
2. Mobility that comes from a fixed-length compact body outfitted with fast aperture lens and splash & dust proof construction
As a telephoto zoom lens with a fast aperture of f2.8 for professional use, we have achieved a stable center of gravity and a total length that remains unchanged during zooming. It also offers strong splash & dust proof performance that permits photography even in the rain when used in combination with astonishing compact and lightweight E-M1, the flagship model of the OM-D series. With these outstanding mobility, this lens gives you the possibilities of photographing the way you like in any locations using the minimum amount of equipment.
3. A fast, accurate AF with high close-up performance, achieved with the world's first Dual VCM focusing system*4
This lens applies the Dual VCM focusing system, an evolution of Olympus-original fast and quiet Movie and Still Compatible (MSC) mechanism. The Dual VCM focusing system is the world's first to use two linear motors to perform focusing with a floating method. The new design has made fast autofocusing with no loss of image quality possible by operating two groups of miniaturized focusing lenses simultaneously, quickly, and with great precision. For a telephoto zoom lens, you can still experience focusing speed on par with that of the M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm f2.8 PRO. Also, it offers a closest shooting distance of 70cm (approx. 50cm from the lens tip) throughout the entire zoom range with no loss of image quality thanks to the corrective effects the floating method provides.
4. Combined with a teleconverter, it provides a high quality and high performance 112-420mm*1 telephoto zoom.
Along with the new PRO lens, we have come up with the M.Zuiko Digital 1.4x Teleconverter MC-14, which is the world's first rear teleconverter for the Compact System Cameras. Attaching it between the M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f2.8 PRO and the camera body changes the combination into a compact, high-performance telephoto lens with a focal length of 112mm to 420mm (35mm equivalent). Leaving the closest shooting distance unchanged, the maximum shooting magnification is increased to 0.6x (35mm equivalent). As it specifically designed for the Compact System Camera, this teleconverter also minimizes image degradation.
1.Equipped with a manual focus (MF) clutch mechanism that permits instantly switching from the autofocus (AF) to the MF mode to allow for personal selection.
2.Function button (L-Fn) mounted on the lens. It makes it possible to adjust functions corresponding to such custom settings on the camera body as "AF stop".
3.The dedicated Lens Hood LH-76 uses a slider-locking mechanism that allows you to slide down the hood while it is still attached.

Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan.
