Excerpt: I can't say enough of this lens. Hands down one of the finest lenses Olympus have ever made. 300mm equivalent focal length is incredibly useful. From sports, events, news, wildlife, this lens can do it all. Paired with an Olympus 1.4x teleconverter, this lens effectively becomes a 400mm 2.8.
Pros: Affordable, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I bought this as a way to try out a new prime lens, buying it used. The lens arrived quickly after ordering it. (Adorama is one of the best online dealers I've dealt with). The lens itself is in mint condition, works like it is brand new.
Excerpt: I just got this lens. Work well very clear pictures. I had read that it searches when focusing. Makes- Agrinding noise. It did that for me. This seemed to occur when the object is dark or with no clearly define edges. I always have used single point focusing. I tried multipoint focusing .
Excerpt: Wonderful lens, stunning sharpness and microcontrast, gorgeous bokeh. Every manufacturer has their superstar lenses that have that little bit of magic in them. This lens has that magic. Works great on my E-M1 as a portrait lens too.
Excerpt: I normally only get remained or new but to save almost $300 Adorama has get prices and the rating system for used equipment are spot on Great working produce and no abnormal problems So if you have a chance to get used Do It
Excerpt: Non-zoom lens equivalent to 100mm focal length on a 35mm film camera. Since I already nave the great Zuiko 12-60 mm (= 24 to 120 mm) f2.8-4.0 lens, which has pretty good close focusing capability at the tele end, this lens does not add much new macro capability.
Summary: I purchased this lens about 5 months ago, and have used it on my E-500, OMD E-M5, and the E-5. This is really a fantastic lens; colors really Pop off the screen (or print), Contrast is corner to corner, and I see no distortion. And the bokeh is impressive.

Superb lens -- macro, portrait, or general purpose

Summary: In combination with my E-620, this "portrait" length DSLR lens delivers the highest resolution and best ergonomics I have ever experienced. In fact, if you can forego zoom capability, it will probably become your default lens. More information is available at dpreview.com.
