  • READY FOR THE LONG HAUL

    The M.Zuiko 300mm f4.0 IS PRO lens is right at home in harsh environments like dust and rain thanks to hermetic sealing in 17 locations. Combined with weather sealed OM-D* camera bodies, you'll never have to worry about weather or environmental conditions wherever your photographic pursuits take you. And because this lens is so compact, you can easily fit it in your carry-on luggage to ensure your gear arrives when you do and not tire out if you're using it all day long!

  • BIG SHOTS OF SMALL SUBJECTS

    With a minimum focusing distance of just 4.5 feet (1.4m) and a maximum magnification of 0.48x (35mm equivalent), this super telephoto lens is equally adept in close quarters, delivering stunning, high magnification macros shots.

  • SHHHHH, AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHY IN PROGRESS

    The inclusion of the Movie & Still Compatible (MSC) mechanism makes AF operations completely silent. In combination with the OM-D's Silent Mode (electronic shutter), you can photograph skiddish nature subjects as well as indoor events that require complete silence like musical performances. The size and weight of the OM-D system and these silent features open up a whole new world of shooting possibilities!

Most Fun I've Had with any New Lens
This is the most fun I've had with any new lens I've owned. Obviously, it's a great tele for animals and birds, and tack sharp. It blows me away to be able to zoom in on the eye of a squirrel in a photograph and see my distorted reflection. And the stability really blows me away when I got a tack sharp photo handheld at 1/20 - that tech is unreal! But what was really unexpected for me, and pleasantly surprising, was the close focus ability, especially when paired with the 1.4 tele-converter. I can take insect photographs from four feet away that I'd have to be four inches away to get with my 12-40 lens. That is so great for skittish subjects. It also brings an interesting perspective and bokeh to the close images that's been fun to explore (I wish I could include a couple of shots in the review to illustrate.) The manual focus ring is great, easy pull and smooth operation when follow-focusing a dragonfly or hummingbird thru the bushes, which no AF can handle. I just use the yellow focus assist to light up their faces, and then fire. The only complaint I might have is that the manual focus ring is not at the same focus point as the internal AF. And a faster f2.8 would have been nice; but much more expensive. It was an expensive lens, yes, and that was a big hesitation, and I probably shouldn't have splurged that much; but I have no regrets at all. I've wanted a super-tele for years, and this is so much better than the 600mm equivalent super-teles I lusted after back when I was shooting film cameras. (And I got it in time to shoot the eclipse!)

Awesome lens
Another great lens made by Olympus. This lens made the trek with me to the Galapagos Islands and although it was the longest lens (size wise) m43 lens I have, it was a treat to have. I managed to get lots of great shots with it!

Awesome
Compact, manageable and powerful. What I've always wanted! Using mostly for Bird Photography. In addition to the 1.4 teleconverter gives great reach. Images are sharp when I can actually get the bird. Not used to having the increased telephoto power, takes some practice to locate a closer subject. Love the quick switch to manual focus and the image stabilization feature. Looking forward to more time and practice with the lens.
