Overview

Description by Olympus:

Ultra-compact, with dedicated digital design for superior imaging performance 
Quality and performance in a significantly smaller size 

The M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 14–150mm f4.0–5.6 is a powerful 10.7x zoom lens with a maximum barrel diameter of 63.5mm. It is less than 65% the size and 70% the weight of the 10x zoom ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 18–180mm f3.5–6.3. 
Sophisticated optics include Dual Super Aspherical* and Extra-low Dispersion Aspherical elements, as well as high-refractive index glass, for superior image quality across the entire 10.7x zoom range. 

* Dual Super Aspherical lens elements are aspherical on both sides, and have dramatically different thickness at the center and periphery.

Excellent close-focusing performance 
At the telephoto end of the zoom range, the lens offers a minimum working distance of just 33cm and a maximum magnification ratio of 0.24x (35mm equiv. 0.48x) for close-up shooting. 

Full multicoating of all elements 
All lens elements are multi-coated to ensure maximum light transmission and image clarity, with minimal ghosting and flaring in backlight. 

Circular aperture mechanism 
A circular aperture mechanism is used to assure smooth, even background defocusing. 
Superior operating ease 

High-speed autofocus 
The inner focusing mechanism uses a light, compact focusing unit with two elements to enable exceptionally fast, quiet autofocusing for smooth, stress-free still-image and movie shooting. 

Smooth manual focus 
The manual focusing mechanism is designed to offer a responsive feel, with just the right amount of resistance to enable smooth, precise operation.

Reviews

"The M.ZUIKO Digital 14-150mm lens offers virtually silent focusing thanks to a solution whereby only two of the fifteen lens elements move. In use, we have also found the system surprisingly quick on the E-P2, certainly faster than the first version of the 14-42mm kit zoom, though still not quite as zippy as the GH2+14-140mm lens combo we tried out at Photokina. With the focus mode on the Olympus E-P2 set to “C-AF+TR” (AF tracking), the lens unfortunately did not track the subjects well, even though they were not moving very fast.

"The M Zuiko Digital 14-150mm F4-5.6 is Olympus's fourth lens for its Pen series cameras, and the first to venture into the telephoto region. Its 10.7x zoom ratio places it firmly in 'superzoom' territory, covering a very useful 28-300mm equivalent range, and making it ideal for general purpose 'walkaround' or travel use. (Indeed Olympus says that with it on your camera 'you will never miss a photo opportunity', perhaps begging the question as to why the company still makes other lenses.)

Like all superzooms the 14-150mm uses a complex optical formula, with 15 elements in 11 groups including 3 aspheric
