Wow!

  • Summary: I lost my 40-150mm lens while hiking in a fall in Yosemite. While trying to swap the wide angle lens to a tighter shot of my boyfriend using a zoom, the lens bounced off of a ledge that may have been a 50' drop. I didn't even try to grab it since I was also too close to the edge.

  • Summary: I needed a long distance lens for my Olympus E620 digital SLR, and this one fits the bill perfectly for the price and focal range.

Olympus 70/300 mm zoom lense

Railroadman, B&H Photo
26 July 2013
  • Excerpt: This lense is great for wild life and sports photography. It is a great value. even considering the micro converter needed for my Pen PL-1. However I would recomend tripod or monopod mounting to support the camera since the lense is relatively large and heavy compared to other lenses normally used.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy
