Summary: I purchased the ED 70-300mm f4.0-5.6 a few years ago for use with my E-600. The lens is the equivalent of 140MM-600MM in 35MM format, and is my go to lens for shooting animals in nature as well as doubling as a great portrait lens.
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.
Summary: I have had this ED 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 lens for about 3 weeks now, and have had a great time learning to use it. I use it on my E-5 and Evolt-500, as well as on my E-M1, using the MMF-3 adapter. There are some neat features about the lens that seem to get overlooked frequently.
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: 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: 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.
