Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 150-400mm IS PRO Lens

Olympus' remarkable telephoto lens and teleconverter combo on display at The Photography Show TPS 2019: The Olympus 150-400mm f/4.5 Pro + MC-20 converter deliver 2000mm range The Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 150-400mm f/4.5 TC1.25x IS Pro lens – one of the biggest guns, literally and figuratively, in the Micro Four Thirds line-up on display at The Photography Show, which ran from March 16-19 at the NEC in Birmingham. The 150-400mm Pro, as we’ll call it for brevity, offers a 300-800mm equivalent focal range as standard. However, it also has an integrated 1.25x teleconverter that extends this range to 1000mm (though this reduces the maximum aperture to f/5.6).

Also on display at The Photography Show is the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 2x Teleconverter MC-20. This doubles the focal length of the 150-400mm Pro, giving it a remarkable 2000mm equivalent focal length. When paired with the new Olympus OM-D E-M1X, the lens benefits from a rock-solid 7.5 EV steps of image stabilization (thanks to the Sync-IS technology that couples the in-body stabilization with the lens stabiluzation).

The Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 2x Teleconverter MC-20 A 2000mm lens with 7.5 steps of stabilization is already a formidable setup. Factor in that both the 150-400mm Pro and the MC-20 are weather-sealed, though, and this combo becomes an incredible tool in the hands of professional wildlife shooters. On top of that, the MC-20 doesn’t just double the telephoto range – it also doubles the maximum shooting magnification, making it a fascinating proposition for macro imaging.
