Perfecto!!

  • Summary: This lens is amazing. Very clear photos and with it having a F stop of 2.8 I can take photos with no flash at dusk and you get a perfect picture! I do need to say it is somewhat heavy so I use my Tripod. I don't get any shakiness with it. Don't use a light weight tripod it won't prevent it from moving. My camera is an Olympus E-5. This is my favorite lens to use!!

  • Excerpt: I'm thrilled beyond words with my latest acquisiton from Adorama. This is the first used item I've every purchased. Outstanding performance and value - saved me a lot.I suggest that anyone interested in first rate used camera equipment, check out Adorama. I also suggest going for the highest rating on the item. Furthermore, the extended warranty is a steal of a deal.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Excellent upgrade/replacement for the original (non-SWD) 50-200 lens

Joe T. Lynch, Amazon
16 May 2014
  • Summary: I bought the first model (non-SWD) of the Olympus 50-200 when I bought an Olympus E-500 system nearly 10 years ago. I used that lens through several camera bodies including two E-3's and my current E-5. But it had been dropped and abused and wasn't focusing consistently, so I decided to replace it with the newer SWD model. I should have replaced the old lens years ago.

Sharp and focuses fast with the EM1

  • Summary: Decided to take a chance and purchased this lens for use with the EM1. Intend to use it mainly for shooting field sports (Ultimate frisbee, rugby, soccer). Tested it at a rugby game and it was really great! Focus works well (caf, tracking is just too erratic) but takes a bit of getting used to. I used to shoot with borrowed/rented 7Ds and 70-200L lenses and in comparison the 50-200 SWD with the EM1 takes a bit more work but it gets the job done well.

FANTASTIC!

  • Summary: I am a point and shoot photographer, at least until I bought an Olympus OMD 1 camera. I also decided for this lens due to an upcoming trip to Antarctica, wanted to capture good wildlife pictures. The lens is outstanding. The colors, the sharpness that it delivers are amazing. This has gotten more and more into photography, enjoy it very much. Please buy for wildlife photography, you will not be disappointed.

Excellent Image Quality; Great Value; Best images from Manual Focus

dragons4mama, Ebay
7 April 2014
  • Summary: I have an Olympus E-M5 micro 4/3 camera and use the 4/3 Olympus 50-200 (older non SWD model) lens with a Panasonic DMW-MA1 4/3 -> m4/3 adapter. The E-M5 doesn't have the phase detect focus this lens was designed for. The E-M5 will auto-focus, but very slowly and not always tack-sharp. I use auto-focus to get close and then manual focus to get crystal-clear results. Works just fine for still/slow moving subjects. I bought this lens for photographing frogs at dusk.

Fast focus on my E-M1

  • Summary: Used with e-m1 + mmf-3. The focus speed is surprisingly fast. I cannot tell meaningful difference in focus speed when compared with my borrowed swd version.
