ED 40-150mm F4.0 PRO lens specifications:

  • Shortest shooting distance 0.7m
  • Maximum shooting field rate 0.21 times (35mm equivalent 0.41 times)
  • Lens configuration is 19 elements in 9 groups (typo?) (2 aspherical surfaces, 1 super ED, 2 ED lenses, 1 HR)
  • Inner focus system
  • Circular diaphragm with 7 blades
  • Overall length 99.4mm, maximum diameter 68.9mm
  • Filter diameter 62mm

The ED 12-40mm F2.8 has exactly the same specifications as the current model, so it seems likely that there will be a small model change. The ED 40-150mm F4 PRO is extremely compact with a total length of 99.4mm, and it seems to be surprisingly cheap at 899 euros. Regarding the lens configuration, I feel that there are too many 19 lenses in 9 groups at this size, so it may be a mistake.
