Product Description

Product Description

The Tokina 300 mm f/6.3 compact telephoto mirror lens is designed specifically for mirrorless compact system cameras using the micro 4/3rds mount. The 300 mm focal length of the lens gives effective 600 mm (in 35 mm terms) when placed on a mirrorless camera body making it a super-telephoto lens. This allows distant subjects to be brought in much closer. But despite this powerful focal length the lens is incredibly compact to match the size of the compact cameras it was intended to be used with. The lens has a fixed f/6.3 aperture. The Tokina 300 has a full metal lens barrels and very high quality glass optics to yield the enhanced optical performance from this design. This lens has a wide grip area on the manual focusing ring and smooth movement to assist in-focusing. (This is not an auto-focus lens.)

I bought the Tokina 300mm f6.3 mirror lens to use on my Olympus PEN micro four thirds body. It has the equivalent focal length of 600mm in 35mm terms. Think about it - 600mm.

It being a mirror lens, there is no aperture to alter, so you put the camera onto Aperture priority (A on the top plate control). The other thing you have to do, and to take responsibility for, is the focussing. You will be focussing a 600mm lens - take your time and get it right. Try looking at an online depth of field calculator to see how deep the focussed area will be.

Exposure is fine. Contrast is fine. Distortion is not noticeable. The Olympus PEN body has the image stabilization in it (not so with Lumix micro 4/3 bodies), and so is the ideal partner for this lens.

In the hand, this lens is lovely to hold, and to use and to look at. It really is an attractive thing. There is a supplied lens hood, which roughly doubles the length of the lens - but is useful when shooting into the sun. Without the lenshood, and to an unknowlegeable eye, this doesn't look like a telephoto lens at all. Useful for candid photos of people.

With 4 degrees of coverage, mostly whatever you are going to be taking pictures of has to be a long way away.

I thought this lens was good value for money, well made, worked as described. I am happy with it - particularly how small it is. I am pleased that mirror lens technology has found a nice niche in today's world. The "polo mint" bokeh are particularly pleasing, and an obvious giveaway as to what type of lens was used.

The Tokina 300mm f6.3 is small, good quality, nice to use, but like all "long" lenses requires careful focussing. I recommed it if you have a micro 4/3 body.

Amazing reach for the size and price.
Beware though: it is very, very difficult to focus it when hand-holding.
I might be happy with it if I habitually used a tripod, but I don't.

Try and take a look at the Olympus 70-300mm 4.8-6.3 instead. Not much longer, it is sharper, and very flexible. Highly useful lens.
(Should be used with Olympus bodies though, since they have in-body stabilization. Panasonic bodies depend on it being in the lens. Pana has a similar lens, but I haven't tried it.)

Tricky. Fun. Artsy. 6 Nov. 2012

This lens has me puzzled, but I am giving it thumbs up because it is a welcome addition to the M43 line and has a unique signature. Some people will hate this lens, so be sure you do your homework. I have mine coupled to an OM-D EM-5. Be sure to upgrade to 1.5 Firmware Update. Adjust Image Stabilization for a 300mm lens. I've been out birding with it and can see a a Nuthatch peck a peanut from 30 yards. Crank up ISO to 800-1600 or use the grainy filter option on the OM-D. This lens is well-made and appears to be aluminum (by comparison IMO much better construction than Olympus 12mm f2 snapshot lens getting rave reviews), but the manual focus is a bit stiff. I like that better than having play. Image output results have a vintage look. Don't expect to cut your eyeballs! Razor sharpness is lacking with any catadioptric lens due to amplification of vibrations. Might be fun on a tripod for moon viewing. I am tempted to take this to Arizona on my next rattlesnake shoot.

OK quality, but great size 24 Nov. 2012

Not the greatest mirror lens I've used (the Tamron 350mm 5.6 probably takes the cake), but it isn't bad either. I personally love the out of focus "donut" effect. For the sheer portability, it's really a no brainer.

As the various reviews have stated, this lens is very hard to focus and the lens lacks contrast. Focus peaking in the camera body is very helpful. If one is very careful with focusing and using the lens/camera on a monopod or tripod, the resulting image can be good, not outstanding but good. Post processing can help the contrast issue. I decided to keep the lens.

Very sharp and much more compact than a 300mm zoom lens

The bokeh is horrible. Manual focusing is difficult 13 Aug. 2014

The bokeh is horrible. Manual focusing is difficult. When the stars align correctly, it takes a decent photo.
