Summary: This was a gift for my husband and he totally enjoys using this whenever the chance arises. The quality of the pictures taken with this lens is very good and it captures details of the photo subject. We were even able to see an eagle in the trees on the shoreline from a boat in the middle of a lake that we could not see with the naked eye. The product was better than he expected and well worth the cost.
Olympus 70-300mm f/4-5.6 ED Zuiko Digital review by Easy
3 April 2011
Summary: I am very impressed with this lens. It is built like a tank. Slightly soft wide open, so aperture needs to be controlled. I usually use it stopped down with F7.1 and the output images are sharp. CDAF is a bonus for M4/3 users. Highly recommended!
Pros: Build and handling are great, IQ is excellent, not too expensive
Summary: Perfect fit for my Olympus camera. Lens zoom perfect. I'm new to SLR photography and the lens is easy to change and use. Discription was right on. I received it as promised. I will use the seller again.
Summary: Because I goofed, this is the second lens like this I have purchased. I really like the lens used on an Olympus E-volt camera. Relatively speaking, it is lightweight and easy to carry for the unexpected photo of wild game/birds I encounter when hiking.
Summary: Completely unhappy with this lens. Have not had a clear picture with this whether hand held or on tripod. I am not sure if it is this particular lens that is bad or all but I am very upset at having spent the money on this lens.
Pros: very nice optics clear ,very nice lens. A nice addition to my equipment. I bought the lens when newegg was running promotion. Great price. Just a great lens for my son and daughters sports. would highly recommend
4 1/2 Stars -- A Highly Versatile, High Quality Long-Range Zoom Lens!
13 April 2010
Summary: This relatively lightweight lens is top-notch in delivering high quality images with little-to-no distortion throughout its 70-300mm (really 140-600mm) focal lenths when taking outdoor shots. Indoors, images are also sharp but autofocusing is somewhat slow in low light conditions. However, as another reviewer mentioned, this limitation can be mostly overcome by setting the camera to manual and auto focus.
Summary: Using lens on an E510. Good lens, was concerned about how slow it was to focus and zoom until I updated the E510 firmware for the 150mm lens, after that zoomand focus were much faster, roughly equivalent to the Canon 250mm lens we use on a Canon XS. When lens fully zoomed vibration/shake can be a problem. This is typical with all zoom lenses. Best used with a tripod, a monopod can help. But I do use it frequently without either and get satisfactory pictures.
