Excerpt: I love the range. I purchased to take on a trip to India to Rathambore tiger preserve next month. Leaving my big Canon guns home. In my testing around home I got plenty of sharp bird photos. I have a Canon 800mm L IS and a Canon 500mm f4L Is .
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I purchased this lens for use on my Olympus E-M5 II and had the opportunity this past weekend to photograph a surfing contest with it. Although a little slow, the image quality is very good and it was nice to be using a lens with a 35mm equivalent 600 mm reach.
Excerpt: Coming from the Canon 5D Mark III and several L lenses (including the excellent 70-200L f2.8 Mark II and 70-300L), I had very modest expectations of this lens. I was after the size and weight of the MFT system, and pinned my hopes on the three PRO lenses that I purchased along with the Oly E-M5 Mark...
Pros: Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Bought this lens as I heard this will be best fit for olympus camera compared to lumix 100-300mm. Lighter and cheap and has similar image quality.

Summary: I purchased this lens for to get closer / better pictures of my son playing t-ball. From the first time I put this lens on my camera, I was impressed with the zoom and the quality of the photos. Each time I used the lens over the course of the season I continued to be impressed with the lens.
Summary: Good reach, needs a lot of practice to setup the camera depending on the light . needs often to shot over ISO 800 to 4000 at 300 mm ( to have shutter speed over 600 and so have clear pictures) good lens overall, light can be an issue depending on situation.
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: 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

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.
