Deja vue all over again, in a way, as the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm f2.8 PRO lens was first announced when the E-M1 was released but this time it's for real. The press release is here
and the US product page is here
. There's also a YouTube video introducing the lens here
Here's the MTF chart:
I'm no expert but comparing it to the MTF chart of the sharpest telephoto zoom I've previously owned, the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM, I think this is even better and, don't forget, that Zuiko MTF chart is wide open at f/2.8. So maybe it's been worth the wait, although I could have made very good use of the lens this summer
, with the lens expected to ship in the States in November. The only downside for most of us will be the cost but in this case it looks like you get what you pay for. I'm looking forward to the reviews...
