Great lens for decent price

Michael, Amazon

  • Summary: I just love this lens. I used to have a 300mm manual lens and it did great job but I wasn't getting every shot in focus since there was no indication when it is and I missed in about 40% of shots. Now it is a totally different story. Low light is no big problem - I shoot with tripod but it does give awesome long-range shots even hand-held. My photography experience has been expanded with this lens.

Fair price for a used lens and it works great. Win Win situation!

  • Summary: The lens scared me at first because it wouldn't focus but then I realized it has a switch on the side for Manual or Auto Focus. Once I figured that out, it was smooth sailing. The lens is not overly heavy for its' size. Clear pictures and works great once you get used to it. A tripod was a big help and also using my camera on sport mode so it would have a faster shutter speed when I'm holding it without a tripod helps.

A Great Long Range Zoom

Robert Hypes, Amazon
3 December 2013
  • 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. I already had two smaller variable zoom lenses and a great macro lens, so when I wanted a lens with longer range capabilities, this one seemed perfect, and it has not disappointed.

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. Would have prefered a similiar lense using the micro 4/3 system and at 75-250mm.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

Work fine with E-M5

Raytracer, B&H Photo
28 June 2013
  • Excerpt: Work with E-M5 with MMF-3 adapter provide all most same result against Panasonic Lumix 100-300mm f/4.0-5.6 G Vario Aspherical MEGA OIS Lens except: 1. no viewfinder image stabilization - it's a issue but did not reflect result if you can handle your target in correct position in viewfinder.2. focus is slow to bad if select all focus point. But improved after changed to one focus point. in this case, focus speed still slower than Panasonic but within one sec.3.

Great lens for the money, you won't regret it. Glass quality is very high.

plecostomusfan, Ebay
20 May 2013
  • Summary: Positive: Excellent lens for the money. CA is practically nonexistent, AF works very well even on moving subjects. Suprisingly good shots even handheld and panning, although I definitely recommend a tripod/monopod for full zoom shooting. Negative: The lens hood from other Oly lenses with the same filter size will not fit, unfortunately. Plan on buying one, since this lens didn't come with one from the factory.
