Solid Performer

  • Summary: Something special about the images I get out of this lens. I adapted it to an EM-5. Autofocus can be a little slow but focus assist works great when you can use manual focus. 100-400mm is a great range, very useful when you carry a wide zoom or prime but 100mm works well I a lot of situations and...

EXCELLENT LENS, HIGH QUALITY OPTICS

  • Summary: I added this lens to my OMD-EM5 with the MMF-3 adapter ring about a year ago. It's a hefty lens, but can still be used hand held to shot wildlife. I used it on a trip to Mt Rushmore and the closeups of the presidents faces are crystal sharp even when using the Olympus 2x extender and a tripod.

Excellent Quality

  • Summary: I have owned this lens for about a year now and it far surpasses the crispness of my 70 - 300 Zuiko lens, even when using it with the Olympus EC-14 1.4 Teleconverter. The lens is very well built. It's my favorite lens for wildlife photography. The SWD focus is super fast when used with my E-3.

EXCELLENT OPTICS, MY BEST LENS

  • Summary: I have had this lens for just under a month, and am totally pleased with the lens. I started by mounting it to my E-500, then the OM-D E-M5, then finally to the awesome E-5. This is the sharpest telephoto zoom I have ever used.

Works well with OM-D EM-5

  • Summary: While focusing is slow (under 3 sec) with AF-S/MF on an EM-5 or GH2, the resulting images are excellent. The TC 1.4X doesn't slow focusing and the images are plenty sharp @ F/5. The (removable) lens support ring is excellent and much needed when using this lens with an m43 camera body.

Autofocus doesn't work well

  • Summary: I have had this lens for over six months and am disappointed. I was looking for a zoom lens with a wide aperture that I could use in low light situations, like indoor school events and such. In those situations I have been able to get better pictures.

  • Summary: I bought this lens a few months ago. From the first shot I saw the qualities of the lens, And I'm sorry that I didn't bought it several years ago when I purchased the E-3. This is a superb lens, very sharp and not to heavy. A wonderful combination with the E-5

Excellent Lens, Great Value

  • Summary: I shoot wildlife and zoo photography. I use this as my primary lens and love it. The picture quality is amazing even with the 2x teleconverter. I was able to take pictures in Denali of animals that were barely visible on the viewfinder but turned out clear and detailed on my computer.
