lightweight zoom lens

  • 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.

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

bobbewig, Amazon

  • 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: I'm relatively new to dslrs having purchased the E 510 about 3 months ago and the 70 300 two months ago. My first impression was after using a bridge camera this was rather bulky. However after using it for a couple weeks I found it to be a fairly nice carry around combination. The 70 300 in reality 140 600 to the 4/3 systems is very compact in comparison to competitors with that same range.
  • Pros: Best bang for the buck. No one sells anything close to this for this money., Fairly fast in good light., Sturdy build., Compact for a 140 600 mm lens., Very sharp, not great IQ but very good.
  • Cons: Performs poorly in low light, constantly searching for subject.

  • Summary: I use this in a wide variety of working distances, close and far. Primarily used for people and wildlife, but also have used it in many other situations when a telephoto is appropriate. Despite not being splash/dustproof, I have taken this on numerous hikes and weeklong backpacking trips and I haven't had a problem (though I am more careful with this than my 12-60, which is sealed).
  • Pros: great reach and versatile range, small size, price
  • Cons: small max aperture

Zeico Olympus 70-300 zoom lens

Kindle Customer "woodturner wedum", Amazon

  • Summary: A good, not excellent lens. It requires a high ISO to be used in low light. Otherwise, very satisfactory for close-up long lens at a great price. Would be nice to have IS built into the lens as they are in Canon.
