Excerpt: Have had experience with 3 other OM lenses with mixed results but this one is by far the sharpest. Except for the long zoom range it would be my go-to lens. Surprised it did not come with a lens hood.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
Summary: This is a powerful lens which allowed me to get great graduation photos (from a stadium seat) of my son receiving his high school diploma. Easy to use and fits my Olympus OM-D E-M10 camera. I got clear photos without using a tripod.

Excerpt: I bought this lens a few months ago, mainly to see what I could do with a supertelephoto focal length and anticipate whether or not I'd want the Olympus 300mm f/4.0 PRO when it becomes available.
Excerpt: So being a Canon DSLR guy, when I want long distance reach, it means heavy glass. I'm shooting this lens on the Oly OMD EM5 MkII and the combination is very light. Image quality is very good throughout the range.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Nice handling long zoom lens for micro four thirds

Excerpt: In an effort to go smaller and lighter and improve image stabilization, I recently replaced my Olympus OMD-EM1 with an Olympus OMD-EM5II. At the same time, I replaced a number of lenses, including the Panasonic Lumix 100-300mm f/4.0-5.6 with the M. Zuiko ED 75-300mm f/4.8-6.7 II. I find the M.
Pros: Compact, Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Handling, Smooth operation
Excerpt: Although I have had this lens for only a short time I've been impressed with the image quality. But as others have stated you need good light. And as with any long lens it will yield the best results on a tripod. You can get good images handheld, but it takes practice.
Excerpt: i got this lens to use on my OM-D E-5. I tried using my 70-200 f2.8 lens with the 4/3to Micro 4/3 adapter. I found to be too heavy and felt that it might damage the lens mount on the camera. My main use of the lensIs picture of my Grandson's Little Leauge baseball games.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, None At This Time, Strong Construction
