More Than Expected

Editor of Lillian's Diaries "Sheryl Jones", Amazon

  • 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.

  • Summary: I sold it after 4 months and went for the 50-200 non SWD - overall it's a good lens, but if you watch ebay for the 50-200, you might find one for a cheap price - go for the big one ...
  • Pros: good average zoom lens
  • Cons: build quality

Olympus 70-300mm f/4-5.6 ED Zuiko Digital review by Easy

  • 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
  • Cons: Slightly soft wide open

lightweight zoom lens

Diane M. Fiedler, Amazon

  • 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.

4 1/2 Stars -- A Highly Versatile, High Quality Long-Range Zoom Lens!

bobbewig, Amazon
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.

Nice lens, but needs light.

Stefani Ragsdale "Bboybrx", Amazon
10 February 2010
  • Summary: The lens is very nice quality, but needs a fair amount of light to work well. The autofocus can seem a bit sluggish, but if you put the camera on manual+auto focus then you can help it out.

  • Summary: Buy this lens if you want an inexpensive but good supertelephoto; you can't beat the combination of low price, good results, and light weight.
  • Pros: Extremely long reach, sharpness, contrast, price, macro capability, size and weight, build quality
  • Cons: Autofocus speed and lack of focus limiter
