Compact And Lightweight
At a mere 4.1 pounds and measuring just over a foot long, the 150-400mm IS PRO lens is compact and lightweight to let you move. When paired with a mirrorless OM-D E-M1X camera, the combination weighs just 6.3 pounds - 50% less versus the weight of an equivalent 300mm-800mm lens and DSLR camera. Built from lightweight but durable magnesium alloy and carbon fiber, this lens is designed to be evenly balanced in your hand, all so you can have more freedom to shoot without being tied to a tripod.
A protective jacket for your lens is something else you have to carry around. That's why we designed the 150-400mm IS PRO lens to be dustproof, splashproof and freezeproof down to 14°F. Shoot on a windy beach or a rainy day, no protective gear needed. When you pair the lens with select weathersealed OM-D cameras, you'll have a fully sealed system that lets you enjoy maximum mobility. It's no wonder we build the world's most portable camera system.
Handheld Shooting Controls
Controls are placed for easy, comfortable reach during handheld shooting. You'll find a rubberized zoom / focusing ring for fine tuning your focus. Five function switches give you all the control you need: AF Limiter, AF/MF toggle, Image Stabilization, Button Function Control, and Electronic Sound Off.
For days when you're shooting under a hot sun with blazing temperatures, this lens has two exterior layers that act as a heat shield. They reflect infrared rays away from the lens to control the temperature inside so it always operates at peak performance.
The forefront lens features a fluorine coating that makes it smoother and more resistant to scratches. Waterdrops glide off without streaking, and dirt and grime can be effortlessly wiped away.
Unique In Its Class
The 150-400mm IS PRO lens has features that puts it in a class all by itself. There's one lens length for all zoom ranges to help maintain its compact size. The lens hood is made of lightweight, durable carbon fiber to reduce weight. A rubber lens end covers and protects the lens barrel. You can safely and comfortably carry the lens using a non-slip rubber grip on the tripod mount. Strap eyelets make it easy to transport and reduces stress on the lens mount. Easily adjust the tripod seat ring to a vertical or horizontal position with click stops every 90 degrees.
Capability Way Beyond Its Size
Don't let the compact size fool you. The 150-400mm IS PRO has a powerful array of features to ensure your photos are spectacularly sharp.
5-axis Sync IS
To equip you with handheld super telephoto capabilities, the 150-400mm IS PRO lens offers the world's best stabilization performance at this telephoto range. Olympus' 5-Axis Sync IS combines in-lens stabilization with in-camera stabilization to provide up to 8 shutter speed steps of compensation at 300mm, and up to 6 shutter speed steps at 1000mm. To ensure the highest level of stabilization performance, the 150-400 IS PRO lens features the same gyro sensor used in the pro OM-D E-M1X camera to instantly detect all types of shake.
Fast Precise AF
It's called lens thinning technology and it gives the 150-400mm IS PRO lens all the autofocusing speed and precision you need. The secret is thinner and lighter focal lenses, so they react quickly and work seamlessly with your camera's autofocus system. Shooting with a super-telephoto lens and capturing fast moving subjects has never been easier.
Carbon Fiber Hood
The included lens hood is constructed of lightweight durable carbon fiber that's strong to withstand shooting in all types of outdoor environments. Flocking is applied to the inside of the hood to reduce glare for better image quality.
Outfit To Perform
Specialized accessories will help you get even more performance from your 150-400mm IS PRO lens. The Zuiko PRF-ZD95 PRO Protection Filter features ZERO coating to suppress flares and ghosting, and a fluorine coating makes it easy to clean.
