Excellent lens !
I've got excellent results with this lens until I put a poor quality UV filter on. My pictures were lacking quality and sharpness. You've got to make sure you use prime quality filters on that lens or none at all. I use it in combination with my 1.4X converter on and I'm very happy with the picture quality. I bring it along with me everywhere I'm going, it's a great asset to my camera kit.

Something of a Disappointment
I purchased this lens along with the 14-42 mm and 40-150 mm lenses when I bought my E-620 in May 2010. I've been very happy with the camera and the other two lenses, but have been disappointed with the 70-300 mm lens. The other two lenses produce very sharp images, but the images from this lens are noticeably soft in comparison, even at high shutter speeds on a sturdy tripod. Judging from some of the other reviews, it may be that I just got a lemon, but this particular unit is definitely not in the same league with the other two kit lenses. I realize that compromises are required in engineering a lens of this size and weight with such a long zoom range, and it's probably an OK value for the money, but I was hoping for better. I would have attached a couple of representative images, but the originals are in the 7-8 MB range and the uploader rejected them. I'm a big fan of the 4/3 format, but wish there were a larger multi-vendor ecosystem.

Great Lens
After going through lots of mixed review on this lens I bought it for my Evolt 500. After some practice to understand the lens I went to Kaziranga (Asam - India). It delivered nice and clear photos.

For the Birds!
I read some negative reviews about this lens for bird photos. I disagree and I caught two of my best shot yet, using this lens. My field camera is the evolt-500. My late brother (Photographer) always said, it not the camera, but the person behind it that gets the shot. P.S. This was hand-held, no tripod. The original pictures are Spectacular.

Love it
I purchased this lens a few weeks ago for an four-year old E-510. After a few dozen test shots indoors and out I've been very happy with the results. I particularly like the manual focus in that it feels substantial, more so than the kit lenses that came with the camera. Once in focus manually it stays there allowing for multiple shots without waiting for auto focus which I only use under lower light conditions. The weight is excellent both for carrying in a briefcase as well as carrying for extended periods on the street.
