Excellent lens if used within its limitations

Winter, Amazon
10 December 2013
  • 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 weight. The primary drawbacks are the lack of optical stabilization in the lens (as is done with the Sigma, Nikon, and Canon telephoto lenses) and its f6.7 speed.

Good telephoto

pulsar, Amazon

  • Summary: Small, lightweight, and sharp. I also like that it focuses reasonably fast as well. I'd say that it's better than the 4/3rds zukio 70-300 and it uses the same lens hood.

Perfect Digital Zoom Lens

Richard Mize, Amazon
12 December 2012
  • 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!

Exceptional

Nathan Grenell, Amazon

  • Summary: I absolutely am thrilled with my purchase of this lense. I still hope they will come out with a 500 mm lens for catching pix of my chipmunk friends and dragon flies. I have been able to use this lens for some of my wild flowers and birds and fall leaves in streams I am enjoying it immensely.

Overall, an excellent lens -- highly recommended.

  • Summary: I've had this lens for about two months. I have found the image quality to be excellent -- but, it must be used with a tripod to obtain that quality. Although it is a fairly slow lens in terms of aperture speed, I find that the range relative to effective focal length is about what I need anyway to obtain proper Depth of Field. It is very well made and feels solid. It focuses fast and very accurately.

Great concept but could have been better.

graymanaed, Ebay

  • Summary: I've had this lens for a month or maybe a little longer. My first impression was 'Wow what a light and tiny long zoom lens!' I think so far that size and weight are the biggest pros. I bought it to replace the Zuiko 70-300 which is larger, heavier, half the price and needs an adapter to mount it to m4/3 cameras. Pros: ---Light and small for such a long zoom. Very easy to take along when you might leave a larger/heavier long lens at home. ---Good contrast.

Small & Lightweight!

Olen Gagarean, Amazon
25 August 2011
  • 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.

OMG (with E-PL2)

Morgan Witthoft, Amazon
18 June 2011
  • Summary: OMG Is this legal? It's just too easy. Brace the camera against a tree, or sit and brace it against your knee, and you get outrageously clear, rich photos on the first try. Tested with the Olympus E-PL2.

An idea that falls short

Alan L. Skerker "ALS", Amazon
27 February 2011
  • 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 near sunrise and sunset. Image quality is at best "average consumer grade.
