Product Description

Product Description

This is a Micro Four Thirds super telephoto lens for those long shots off in the distance, which you can magically bring nearer at a turn of the wrist. Extremely compact and lightweight it offers an equivalent range of 150-600mm on a 35mm film camera. Now you can capture that sense of being close to your subject without having to get so near. This high-power lens has two additional benefits. It comes with a unique screw drive mechanism, which is especially quiet for shooting films and has a very fast auto-focus function (MSC) for taking rapid-fire still shots.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good, but better in good light 7 Jun 2013
By Popeye
Verified Purchase
I've knocked a star off because it's not perfect, but then again, I doubt many lenses are. The missing star is also because of Olympus' annoying practice of not including a lens hood, which you then have to go off and source - usually at too much cost and often with some difficulty.

I've tried it in a variety of lighting conditions, including the lesser-spotted bright sunlight situation. In decent light on an Olympus OMD EM5, it gives very good sharp and detailed pictures handheld. On a tripod, it might be even better, although there's no lens collar, so the balance is going to be a bit off from the ideal. In poorer light, it can still be good, but you are obviously limited by the slower apertures on this lens.

It is very light (certainly compared with a Nikon 300mm f4) and really quite compact. Build quality seems fine to me unless you equate weight with quality, because it is definitely light. There is no zoom creep that I can detect, and the image quality is decent wide open throughout the range, although I think you'll get better performance out of it if you stop down to f7.1 or f8 and stop short of fully extended (say about 252mm, which you will see in the top right of the viewfinder on an OMD).

Because it's so small and light, I have found myself sometimes forgetting that I'm shooting at up to 600mm equivalent and have tried shutter speeds that are far too low. I think this may well account for some reports of disappointment with this sort of lens. The IBIS on the Olympus OMD can let you get away with this sort of thing quite a bit, but even that has its limits and I find the OMD IBIS a bit inconsistent at this sort of thing, possibly even being better at supporting my Nikon 300mm f4, 1.

5.0 out of 5 stars Olympus 75-300mm 1 Dec 2013
A very nice lens, highly recommended for you guys out there, who love picturing wildlife. It's very light, and it's is cheap for a 150-600mm (35mm) lens.
Love it! :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks and feels quality 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase
Only had this lens delivered today, on time and well packaged, I have been out most of the day taking a variety of shots, mainly wildlife for which the lens was purchased, the pictures are nice and clear for a lens of this price, I have cropped some of the better pictures by 100% and printed them out on A4 sheets and the results are very good.

I have only given the lens 4 stars as like many others think that Olympus should supply a lens hood with the lens.

Over all when taking the price into account this is a very capable telephoto lens and would recommend it to friend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive for the money 5 Jun 2014
I've been using this lens for a while now, mostly for wildlife stuff at zoo's, but today also for a Red Arrows display. It continues to impress me when used with my Olympus EM1/EM5. Quick to focus, and pin sharp images.

Effectively this is the same as 150-600mm lens on a full frame camera. A fraction of the weight/money though.

In good light its hard to beat.
