If you are a frequent reader of this blog you might know that I don’t use zoom lenses very often. But some situations need a good zoom lens to achieve good results. In Norway we had to capture cars in the beautiful nature and there were some situations were I wasn’t able to shoot with my Olympus 12-40mm f/2.8, so I borrowed the Olympus 40-150mm f/2.8. I was very surprised with the quality of this lens and it was a pleasure to work with it for two weeks.
The cars were driving at high speed so it was very important that the lens was fast and accurate. It was the perfect combination with the Olympus OMD 1 Mark II for this trip! I think it also works great for portraits if you prefer a nice blurred background. Luckily it was not heavy at all compared to a full frame camera with a similar lens.
Have a look at the images below to see some photos that I made with the 40-150mm f/2.8. And there will be another Norway post soon!
