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.
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!

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.
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.
Summary: It's a usable long distance lens. With this price, it performs well when lighting is adequate. I can't ask more, cause that will be called greedy...
Pros: low price, i bought it in a deal that it only cost me 335 after tax. And i got this 70-300mm lens which is 140-600mm equivalent. Very useful for long distance shooting
Cons: The aperture is from 1/4, it hardly can be used when light is not enough, like indoor situation. It also can't get auto focus in a Inadequate lighting environment. And the image is not that sharpen, either.
Summary: to the first poster.. dont post service problems here.. they are very general in nature and probably not directed at the actual product. review the product not the story.. it doesnt help other buyers when they see a down rated product for for reasons other than product funtionality..
Pros: at this price, + adding the extra focal range from my camera.. the value is unbeatable.
Cons: no complaints, it feels a little sluggish but i dont intend to take pictures on the fly.
