Olympus 75-300mm f/4.8-6.7 ED M.Zuiko Digital review by Ocean
22 November 2011
Summary: optics are good - small and handy but I am not used to the extreme cheap-construction Level without lens hood and every few month I got dust between the lenses Optics are good - the first half year, with a bit to much CA. With weekly practice it's getting worse. The price is extreme high, it's just a cheap-starter Zoom. The Panasonic 100-300 mm ist by far better. Olympus can do much better.
Pros: light, small, sharp
Cons: f:6,7 only, not dust-proof, no hood, extreme high price, crappy plastics
Summary: This is the super zoom lens of focal length from 150mm to 600mm ( in term of 135) for m4/3 system. Superp optical quality and compact design with MSC. Although it's aperture is f/4.8-6.7, it shows good performance in shooting at sunny days.
Pros: Light weight of lens is the merit of taking super tele shots by hand-held., Super zoom focal length from 150mm to 600mm.for m4/3 users.
Cons: A relative small aperture of f/4.8-6.7 in case of dim lighting condition., No distance-index selector on the lens.

Summary: I am an aficionado of slow telephoto lenses. They often have half the weight of the fast telephotos of the same focal length. My previous favorite was the Pentax Tele-Takumar 300mm f6.3 lens, which I use on my Olympus E-P2 in manual focus mode using an adapter. That lens weighs 790 g, including the built-in tripod collar. Now I have the M. Zuiko 75-300mm f4.8-6.7. It weighs a mere 428 g. It has automatic diaphragm, zoom, and autofocus.
Summary: After giving up on my bridge Panasonic camera which was very difficult to get good quality photos from, I'm very happy with my new compact DSLR samsung camera. I use my camera for nature photographs quite a lot, and this lens is ideal to be able to offer a decent zoom, and very reasonably priced. No cons to report so far, but have only taken it on a few outings. Definitely worth buying for your compact DSLR.
Summary: On an Olympus E-P5 this Olympus lens performs much better than I had been led to believe from reading online reviews. Keeping in mind that its reach lies between 150mm and 600mm at full frame equivalent, I have been able to compare it with my Canon 5D MkII with Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM at the same location: looking south across the river Thames at Island Gardens, opposite the National Maritime Museum with the Greenwich Observatory behind.
Pros: Great Picture Quality, Lightweight, Simple Controls
Summary: when first had this lens I was not sure how it perform, but after a couple of days I am well pleased with 1t.it takes excellent photos at all focal lengths and is also very good at all apertures.i use a monopod when using the 300 focal length as I am not as steady as I used to be.
Pros: Durable, Great Features, Great Picture Quality, Lightweight, Simple Controls
