Lens Throwback - Olympus Zuiko Digital 40-150mm F3.5-4.5

The second lens that I purchased from Olympus was the Zuiko Digital 40-150mm F3.5-4.5 to accompany my kit lens for DSLR E-520. It was a versatile, budget telephoto zoom lens that I have used for many years, creating some wonderful shots. The lens has brighter than usual aperture of 3.5-4.5 versus the typical F4-5.6 options from other manufacturers when it comes to budget telephoto lenses, and I appreciate the ability to gather a little more light, negating the need to raise the ISO numbers unnecessarily. I still have the lens today, and I thought it would be fun to bring it out for another spin, this time mounting it on my OM System OM-1 camera. I went to the KL Bird Park to grab some cute bird photos! The AF was fast, bird AI subject detection tracking worked like a charm, the image quality still stands today, getting sharp, high contrast images, and I thought we should have a Micro Four Thirds update for this 40-150mm F3.5-4.5 budget lens!
