My new lens!

Excerpt: My new Panasonic Lumix 100-300 lens has arrived, and I have tried it out from my balconny overlooking the Boston harbour. I love it, and am looking forward to go with a bus through Portugal and Spain in May! As usual it is a pleasure to shop from B&H. My stuff always arrives before I expect it too!
Excerpt: I use this lens for birding. The photos are from a nature preserve near Pawleys Island, SC. It is serious in length and weight. But the same lens in a Canon L series would be over 10k in price.
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.
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.
Summary: what to say,its a very good lense works great does what it should gives very sharp pictures i have had no problems and would buy this again.I can take a very good picture of an island and the building on it which is about 2 -3 miles away if the weather cooperates that is. The 4 on value is me or the dollar not worth much.
Excerpt: I am a nature and wildlife photographer who just purchased a GH4, and I am on an assignment to shoot 4K video. This lens is amazing. I can capture anything and every creature using this lens. It's sharp and clear and has great contrast.
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.
