Yes, there is. It is DR-66 Decoration Ring. It's out of stock in Australia so hopefully there is stock where you can buy.
The following is not a good seller though with poor feedback.

BTW, some users have recommend using one of those rubber wrist rings (bangle) instead as the original is said to be slippery.

Re: Oly 40-150mm Pro

As Ross indicated the DR-66 is what you need.
I have the DR-66 mounted on mine, it's a nice tidy solution.

Re: Oly 40-150mm Pro

I have left the tripod holder on.

Its quite handy for clipping on/into my belt or pocket to take the strain off the camera strap.................

Re: Oly 40-150mm Pro

Mine comes on and off at whim dependant on whether there's an R in the month or something similar!

Current both tripod mount are off the 40-150 and 300.... No decoration ring fitted to 40-150 at the moment as I haven't bought one (19.99 from most retailers) but there was one supplied with the 300 so thats on, can't say I'm that bothered on the 40-150, but the 300 is a little heavier so it makes it more comfy!

I've kept the tripod mount on my 300 f/4 as I occasionally use for Moon shots (in comparison to my manual Tokina 300 f/2.8).

Re: Oly 40-150mm Pro

My 40-150mm has the DR-66 on it permanently as I usually handhold. Availability of these things is usually very poor or at least it was a few years ago. I ordered mine (as an awaiting stock item) from WEX on 24/3/16 and it dispatched on 30/6/16 so thats a 3 months wait. I think Olympus did not have any in stock or the price was exhorbitant which is why I went to WEX. However the Olympus UK shop is currently showing them at 20 which is what I paid. Until it arrived I used a "lensband" from Amazon. The latter is now stopping creep on my 75-300mm.

Re: Oly 40-150mm Pro

Little bit of bump for this thread as for me the 40-150 Pro has turned out to be my main 'go to' indoor lens - it's great for studio/still life/product work, mainly due to its close focus ability and stunning image quality.

Actually it was going to be on my 'to sell' list, but I really do use it far more than any other lens indoors, so might have to keep it as well as the Panasonic 100-400 I was thinking of buying!

Yes, it is an ideal zoom for indoors, next to the 12-40 Pro lens.

Re: Oly 40-150mm Pro

I have the 40-150mm and the 12-100mm.

The sharpness of the 40-150 is by far the best lens I have experienced. The difference with other pro zoom lenses just stands out.

Am I the only one who thinks this.

I don't have any primes but this lens just blows the other pro zoom away IMHO.
