    Cons: Slow aperture

    Pros: Light, smallish, ok image. Completely surprised me that the Olympus 40-150 is good for digiscoping (taking bird photos through a telescope)! Haven't had any problems with the plastic build, though haven't used it roughly.

    Summary: Easy to invest in since it's quite cheap. Look for discount sales or then bundles if you're buying something like an E-PM1.

    Cons: Not a tank

    Pros: Not a tank, very lightweight, sharp, contrasty lens; easy to manual focus, reasonably good close focus (.9 meters)

    Summary: Can't beat it for the price. IQ very good

    Cons: So light I need to tripod it or monopod it for pix at the 150mm end of the zoom. A bit dark

    Pros: Well I can travel with the 7-14 panny, the kit 14-42 and this 40-150mm and have everything I need in MY POCKETS!!! Have taken great portrait shots of my kids with this lens outdoors. It is a light lens that has decent optical quality for a very reasonable price in an unbelievable size.

    Summary: Great all around kit telephoto for a body IS camera. Needs a steady hand at longer focal lengths because it is so light. I recommend it highly.
