I don't have that particular lens, but I do have a Nikon 75-150 f/3.5 lens that's similar in design. It does the job, but it takes patience to nail critical focus versus just using AF. Though I got my lens to also use on my Nikon bodies which made more economic sense (it was like getting two lenses for the price of one :wink:). At $100 though, I might just consider putting that money in the 40-150mm to get the AF.

I've had one since late 1970s and have taken some quite nice shots with it on my OM1. With the adapter on an EM-5 it a little on the big side. I always thought it was a bit softish on film so I shouldn't expect too much on the digital sensor. They're as cheap as chips so it may be worth a punt just to see if you like it though.

I've also had mine since the late 70's. You can make nice pictures with it, but in the USA, I can get a used M.ED 40-150 for $99 or new for $149. Here, this is not a $100 lens.They were going for $25 on ebay 11 years ago, and today keh.com has one for $19 and another for $25.

On an Olympus camera, the IBIS feature hinders operability, If I want to use it, I have to input a new value into my camera if I change the zoom.
