very sharp

  • 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

Great lens

  • 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.

Great Reach in a compact lens

Bill W, B&H Photo
4 May 2015

  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

Great Lens for Sports (Little League) photography

  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, None At This Time, Strong Construction
