Olympus has officially launched the M.Zuiko 150-400 mm f/4.5 Pro IS zoom. I thought some readers may have an interest in this game-changing lens. This short article provides some links to three reviews of this lens done by Matt Suess, Rob Knight and Mike Inkley.
Since July 2015 when I sold all of my full frame camera gear, I’ve had people regularly ask me if I’ve had any regrets leaving full frame cameras behind. The quick answer is an unequivocal “no”. This lengthy article provides a detailed explanation.
We recently purchased some additional lenses for our Olympus kit to specifically address our needs for all-in-one travel zoom capability. This article provides an overview of our rationale for the lenses we selected.
One of the attributes of a lens that is sometimes overlooked is its minimum focusing distance.

So, it is not surprising that minimum focusing distance is sometimes not given much consideration.
This article does an M.Zuiko PRO lens comparison with various Nikkor lenses. To arrive at the best comparisons that I could, the same apertures and equivalent fields-of-view were used where possible. All equivalent field-of-views noted are based on comparisons to a full frame camera format. Obviously there are not exact matches for all of the lenses between these two brands and formats. This is not a performance comparison. It is one based primarily on price, size, and weight.
One of the reasonably common comments expressed in online photography chat rooms is that Olympus M.Zuiko PRO lenses are ‘expensive’. This begs the question, “Compared to what?”

This article discusses a number of M.Zuiko 100-400 considerations that photographers can assess when deciding whether to purchase this lens or not. This is a fairly lengthy article, so you may want to grab a cup of coffee or brew a pot of tea.
This article outlines some of the primary E-M1 decision factors that can be considered when assessing various E-M1 series camera bodies. This article is not an in-depth technical review that compares specifications between cameras. This posting identifies some primary issues that photographers can keep in mind when making a decision about which E-M1 model to purchase. The factors below are in no particular order.
This article shares some small sensor camera performance tips. While many of these tips are applicable for digital cameras in general, they are especially important when using small sensor cameras such as M4/3 and 1″ format.
