Excellent lens if used within its limitations

Summary: Excellent lens and great telephoto for use with Olmpus 4/3 mirrorless cameras. Considering that this lens provides the field of view of a 400mm lens on a APS-C DSLR or a 600mm lens on a full frame or film camera, this is a tiny marvel that is comparatively inexpensive and a fraction of the size and...
Summary: My 75-300mm Zuiko Lens is an exceptional lens and works extremely well with my Olympus OM-D-E-M5 camera. Very smooth in operation and the quality of the pictures is excellent. One of the best digital zoom lens I've ever used. Highly recommend!

Summary: Price is a bit expensive but I love its small size and lightweightness, and I think it works very well. The photos I took are pretty sharp. Auto-focus performance is excellent and range is okay. With the price, the maximum aperture range should have better.

Summary: I took this lens on a photo shoot to Bosque del Apache hoping to get some nice closeups of the Sandhill Cranes. I essentially fell for the promise of a 600mm equivalent field of view on the EP-2; unfortunately, the combination of this lens and an EP-2 body proved incapable of capturing the birds...
