  • Excerpt: I use it primarily as a zoo lens in order to take advantage of the shallow depth of field when shooting through wire fencing etc. I have used most of the Nikon/Canon lenses in this class, and although it may be a little slower to focus than the latest Canon, I believe it is still sharper than the...

Zuiko SHG lens Rocks!

13 January 2011
  • Excerpt: This is the 2nd Olympus SHG lens that I have, the first is the 150mm F2 lens. IQ is amazing, color is as real as it can gets and works well with 1.4TC & 2TC. Used it mainly for bird photography and its not heavy for a '600mm' view, good for long hike and no worries about bad weather as all SHG glass...
  • Pros: Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Excellent lens!

  • Excerpt: I rented this lens for the NCAA Lacrosse finals and it didn't disappoint. It was extremely quick with focusing, even with a 1.4x teleconverter on the lens. I even hand held it for the heck of it and it is heavy, but it is so sweet to have a 600mm focal length!

Outstanding Wildlife Lens

Orla, B&H Photo
28 June 2010
  • Excerpt: Best birding lens I have used, sharpness is unparalleled even wide open at f2.8. Of course with the crop factor on an Olympus E-3 it is a 600mm lens at f2.8. Focus is accurate and fast. It is a trifle heavy but with all that great Olympus glass that is to be expected.

  • Cons: Heavy

Excellent lens that I rented

Tony, Amazon

  • Summary: I photographed the NCAA Lacrosse semifinals this weekend and had rented this lens to use with a borrowed 1.4x converter. I own the 35-100mm lens and think that is the standard that all oly glass should be measured to. I have used the 90-250mm f2.8 lens and was not impressed.

Scary good lens

Daniel H. Freeman, Jr., Amazon

  • Summary: I take a lot of high school soccer photos. Light is bad and the action fast. I think this lens is perfect. It is heavy and powerful. It gets the job done. There is almost no distortion and the it puts me on the field with action.
