Olympus 300mm f/2.8 Zuiko Digital review by Ocean

Ocean, slrgear.com
30 December 2012
  • Summary: the best 300 mm I've ever used, even better the the newest Canon and Nikon stuff. But it is very heavy for a 300 mm. Optics nearly perfect!
  • Pros: extreme sharp, solid construction, even very good with converters
  • Cons: to heavy, no SWD-SF

Olympus 300mm f/2.8 Zuiko Digital review by MartinM

  • Summary: This is a really nice lens. An incredible reach paired with sharpness. A dream. IQ and build are outstanding. Weight is a topic. I had it on a hike of about an hour hanging around my neck. Not exactly what you would like to take for a long walk. The price tag is ridiculous high.
  • Pros: 600mm, f/2.8, weather sealing, IQ, size
  • Cons: price, weight

am loving this lens

  • Summary: In January I purchased the 300mm F-2.8 to complete my system. I love the clarity and the color I am seeing. I am using this on my EM-1 with a MMF-3 adapter. Having the ability to go to the faster F-stop is allowing the images to capture both speed and maintain the lower ISO to hold the noise down.

300mm F-2.8

  • Summary: The Lens is very crisp and I have been able to take some very nice images with it. I do suggest using a Mono Pod with it for assistance. The drop in filter system makes it work easy. Using with the EM-1...it is very fast focusing and handles well.

  • Summary: I'm a nature photographer, primarily photographing birds. I need a lot of power, razor-sharp quality and good performance in low light. This lens delivers. It is without question the best lens I've owned.

Great Lens

PK-E30, olympusamerica.com

  • Summary: I rented this beauty for this year's Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal. This lens is simply amazing. build quality is almost tank like, although I was more careful with it than a newborn baby. The focus range selector is great and performs very well.

  • Summary: Amazingly sharp, very high contrast (improves slightly by f3.5), will stand the EC-14 without degradation, and the EC-20 with minimal degradation wide open - better than the competition from Nikon or Canon. AF is fast, despite not being a SWD lens.
  • Pros: Sharpness, Contrast, fantastic performance with teleconverters
  • Cons: Heavy
