This review is from: Olympus ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 70-300mm 1:4.0-5.6 Lens (Electronics)
This lens is simply brilliant for wildlife photography. I would recommend using a tripod/mono pod or some support unit due to the terrible camera shake you get with telephoto lenses.
The manual focus isn't that hard to master and is simply brilliant with this lens when you do master it!
It's a pretty good all around lens, if you use the correct settings on your camera for what you are photographing, however i prefer to use my standard wide angle lens for landscapes when i don't want to lug my heavy tripod around. Having said that it captures waterfalls, rives and oceans pretty amazingly with a nice slow shutter speed!
All in all, worth every penny ... would recommend it to any semi-amateur photographer!
