Frequently Asked Questions
Will this lens also take close-up pictures?
Although this is not a macro lens ANY lens can be converted to macro by simply adding an extension tube between the lens and the body. The FOTGA extension tube kit with 10mm and 16mm extension tubes will get this thing to focus a LOT closer. You can even stack multiples of them to get to ridiculous levels. The nice thing about the 150mm on this is that you can shoot a full frame picture of a butterfly from several feet away and not scare off the butterfly.
So is this like a 80-300mm on a full frame camera?
Yes. All m43 cameras have a 2x crop factor compared to "full frame" cameras.
If this lens is the same as a m.zuiko 40-150mm f4.0-5.6 EDR?
Olympus produced the ED model first, and then came out with the R model. The R model firmware was modified to focus faster with later model Olympus micro four third cameras, a firmware update to the older model will basically produce the same results. Although they are cosmetically slightly different, their optics are the same.
