600MM!

DynaSport, B&H Photo
1 January 2015
  • Excerpt: I haven't had this lens very long yet, but I've used it to take photos of dogs playing in the backyard and a football game and it did well at both of those tasks. I plan to use it to take pictures of birds and other wildlife when I get the chance. I will say that the lens has been at least as good as I hoped. The pictures have been sharp and the focus speed has been pretty good. 600mm does require good technique even with the OIS, but the OIS seems pretty helpful.

Great lens if used properly

  • Excerpt: Great telephoto zoom lens for M34, maybe one of the best for this format. There are a lot of complaints about softness at 300mm, but is essential to treat this lens like a 600mm on a full frame sensor. If NEEDS a tripod for best results. It also helps to avoid 300mm at the widest aperture. Better results come by shooting at something like 260-280mm and stopping the aperture 1-2 stops. The lens has manageable limitations. It is a remarkable value for the price.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable

Excellent micro 4/3 telephoto zoom lens

Makoto, B&H Photo
11 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I picked up this lens so that I can shoot pictures of my son while he plays soccer. I also got this because I lacked a native micro 4/3 telephoto zoom lens. I had a Nikon 70-300mm lens that I adapted to m4/3 but I found it difficult to focus accurately and it also had a lot of chromatic aberration which motivated me to get a native m4/3 lens.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: Bulky

Great long range lens

G. Messick, Amazon

  • Summary: This lens is amazing for slow moving wildlife photography and with some patience and good lighting I have success at faster targets. I have been very pleased with the sharpness and the autofocus speed and capabilities on the lens. It is big, it isn't the brightest lens, and it has a plastic extending sleeve, and yes, it gets pretty long, but even with these possible cons, the lens is amazing. It takes great pictures and exploiting the m4/3 crop gives you amazing reach.

Nice lens!

Tim Birder, B&H Photo
27 June 2014
  • Excerpt: Have this lens only for a week, and highly recommend it - can't beat it for the price. On the long end is sharp (contrary to what others say), but focus can be a little slow in low light. Well designed and OIS works very well.

Does what I want at a great price

Carolyn, B&H Photo
17 June 2014
  • Excerpt: I am a casual photographer who just switched to a Panasonic micro Four Thirds system and wanted a long distance lens for vacation shots. This lens is just right. Other reviews mentioned a grating feeling when focusing, but I have not found that to be true. I'm looking forward to having it for our trip to Hawaii this year.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, GOOD PRICE
