Summary: I have been an OLY user for over 40 years and feel that the Oly products are the best money can buy. I have owned Contax, Hassy, Leica,Nikon, and Pentax cameras and lenses in the past. I have never been unhappy with any OLY product I have ever owned.
A fantastic lens for the photographer on a budget!!!

Summary: I owned, as brief as it was, the Olympus M.Zuiko 75-300mm. I realized quickly this lens was only going to be practical for about 10% (or Less) for my total photography needs. Therefore, I quickly returned it, and opted for a more "practical" lens, but I still needed a long lens for my trips to the...
Summary: I've got excellent results with this lens until I put a poor quality UV filter on. My pictures were lacking quality and sharpness. You've got to make sure you use prime quality filters on that lens or none at all.
Summary: I purchased this lens along with the 14-42 mm and 40-150 mm lenses when I bought my E-620 in May 2010. I've been very happy with the camera and the other two lenses, but have been disappointed with the 70-300 mm lens.
Summary: After going through lots of mixed review on this lens I bought it for my Evolt 500. After some practice to understand the lens I went to Kaziranga (Asam - India). It delivered nice and clear photos.
Summary: I read some negative reviews about this lens for bird photos. I disagree and I caught two of my best shot yet, using this lens. My field camera is the evolt-500. My late brother (Photographer) always said, it not the camera, but the person behind it that gets the shot. P.S.
Summary: I purchased this lens a few weeks ago for an four-year old E-510. After a few dozen test shots indoors and out I've been very happy with the results. I particularly like the manual focus in that it feels substantial, more so than the kit lenses that came with the camera.
Summary: The lens provides excellent clarity at high zoom. It is slow and can take some time to hunt for auto-focus as described by other reviews. I often find myself shooting at higher than typical ISO settings to compensate, but the lens can still deliver very nicely.
Summary: I wanted this lens instead of the micro 4/3 mount lens because it is faster. I do a lot of photography in the woods, under a canopy of leaves, and need all the speed I can get. This lens fit the bill.
