Deal of the Day: Olympus 40-150mm lens, $100

Olympus 40 - 150mm Micro 4/3 Lens

Olympus 40 – 150mm Micro 4/3 Lens


UPDATE: The price has now been changed. B&H might have made a pricing mistake, which they have now corrected. Looks like some people got a really fantastic deal.

UPDATE 2: Just found a black version of this lens at Adorama for $99. I’m sure it will go fast.


I just found this great deal and thought you might be interested.

B&H Photo in New York City has a brand new silver Olympus 40mm – 150mm lens for $100. This is a micro 4/3 compatible lens that should work on all Olympus and Panasonic micro 4/3 camera bodies. It is on sale for 4 days at 50% off. On or after February 16, the price goes up to $200.

I already own the older, less spiffy black version. I bought it just before my trip to Japan. I don’t use the lens too often since I tend to prefer wide-angle primes. However, if you like a good quality, compact and inexpensive telephoto zoom, this is hard to pass up. Here are some photos I took with the lens. The 40 – 150mm is equivalent to a 80mm – 300mm zoom on a full frame 35mm system.

    1. Mike, you have a good memory. Yes, I did compare this lens against the 14mm. I did notice a typo on the lens detail on that post, which I corrected. The lens is a 40-150 not a 4-150.
