no image stabilization - troublesome especially because it's slow, a problem in low light

The Olympus M.Zuiko 40-150mm F4-5.6 ED is a lens for SLR cameras that creates a 35mm focal length equivalent of 80-300mm. This is an Extra-low Dispersion (ED) lens built with 13 elements in 10 groups working together to create the clearest image possible. Auto-focusing system is built primarily for speed, and is both movie and still compatible. 7 blades make up the circular aperture for a less distorted image. The maximum aperture depends on the zoom, but at 40mm one can achieve f4.0 and at 150mm the maximum is f5.6, with a minimum of f22 regardless. This lens takes 58mm filters and weighs 190 grams, and comes with front and rear lens caps.
