Item #261015-U410-AF01

This is a high-performance super-telescopic zoom lens that features, for the first time, the Supersonic Wave Drive (SWD) autofocus system which enables the lens to achieve an AF speed about two times faster than the previous ED 50-200mm f2.8-3.5 model. ED lens elements are used extensively to correct the color blurring that can occur when telescopic lenses are extended to their maximum focal length, while the digital-dedicated design ensures high-quality performance with clear, crisp images from edge to edge. Close-up shooting capability is also superb, with a minimum shooting distance of just 1.2 meters throughout the zoom range.



Compatible with E-System and Micro Four Thirds digital cameras through use of MMF-1 or MMF-2 (Four Thirds Lens Adapter to Micro Four Thirds Lens Adapter).

Directly compatible with E-System cameras. Compatible with Micro Four Thirds digital cameras (PEN\OM-D) through use of the MMF-2 or MMF-3 (Four Thirds Lens Adapter to Micro Four Thirds Lens Adapter). The MMF-3 is dust and splash proof for use with that type of lens on a dust and splash proof body. Note, AF performance may diminish as compared to being on an E-System body.

Solid Performer
Something special about the images I get out of this lens. I adapted it to an EM-5. Autofocus can be a little slow but focus assist works great when you can use manual focus. 100-400mm is a great range, very useful when you carry a wide zoom or prime but 100mm works well I a lot of situations and getting out to 400 is really useful. Not the smallest or lightest lens but I can hand hold it, just not all day. Worth the effort for image quality, sharpness, color it produces. f/2.8 - f/3.5 bright for equivalent focal length. Very happy with this lens.

EXCELLENT LENS, HIGH QUALITY OPTICS
I added this lens to my OMD-EM5 with the MMF-3 adapter ring about a year ago. It's a hefty lens, but can still be used hand held to shot wildlife. I used it on a trip to Mt Rushmore and the closeups of the presidents faces are crystal sharp even when using the Olympus 2x extender and a tripod. The autofocus works great and is very fast as long as there is good subject contrast. I recommend highly adding this this to your OMD suite of lenses.

Excellent Quality
I have owned this lens for about a year now and it far surpasses the crispness of my 70 - 300 Zuiko lens, even when using it with the Olympus EC-14 1.4 Teleconverter. The lens is very well built. It's my favorite lens for wildlife photography. The SWD focus is super fast when used with my E-3. I shopped around for quite awhile before I finally found it on sale for a couple bucks under a grand. The best thing about this lens is that it will work just fine with the OMD-EM1 when I finally decide to upgrade. If you want a very high quality lens then this lens is certainly a very good one to own.
