Product Description

The newly designed M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 75-300mm II f4.8-6.7 with a 35 mm equivalent of 150-600mm is an affordable super telephoto lens that delivers excellent portability and outstanding image quality when paired with the award-winning Olympus PEN or OM cameras. Weighing only 14.9 ounces and measuring 2.7 by 4.58 inches and reaching 300mm, this is the perfect lens to take with you for capturing outdoor nature scenes. Comprised of 18 elements in 13 groups, including a Super ED lens provides exception optical performance throughout the zoom range. One Super ED (extra-low dispersion) lens and 2 ED lenses eliminate chromatic aberration which deteriorates a picture. 3 HR (high refractive index) lenses make the lens compact and provide an excellent picture throughout the zoom range.

For the price and weight, this is a super lens.

It's not a professional one you could use to shoot an eagle in flight at sunset or a touchdown across a stadium at night, but if you can work with the F stops it can do, it'll get the job done. With the IS on the Olympus OM-D E-M5 I can take clear shots in cloudy daylight at full zoom without a tripod.

Some chromatic blurring on high contrast areas at full zoom, but less than I've seen with other lenses at the same or lower price point.

I prefer metal to this one's plastic, but it seems sturdy enough. It's a few hundred less than the Gen 1 version too.

It's about half the length and what feels like 1/3 or less of the weight of my Canon 70-200 EF 2.8 which cost much more, yet with the MFT factor gets me to a 600mm equivalent - 3x as far.

It would be nice if more of the Olympus and Panasonic MFT lenses used the same filter size. I picked 3 lenses plus the kit, and every one is a different size. At least the smaller filters are less expensive than the full frame lens ones.

Perfect with my OM-D. I checked the sharpness against my Olympus 40-150mm ED lens. (both at the 100mm point)
There was a clear difference, upon magnification, this lens is sharper.
Great size for traveling, and hiking.
Fair price-point.

Optical quality is very good. It is small and light. Build quality is good. It has good close focus capability. I use it for butterflies to birds.
I have used mostly Nikon 200 - 400 - F4, Nikon 70 - 200 - F2.8, Nikon 300 - F2.8, Nikon 70 - 300 and once in a while Canon 400 - F2.8. Image quality from the Olympus is close to all and better than the Nikon 70 - 300.
I would recommend it for Micro 4/3rds users. If it were faster, it might get the fifth star.

I read lots of reviews before purchasing this lens through my local photo store (Rockbrook Camera, Omaha, Ne). I was concerned about the maximum aperture. But I decided to try it anyway.

This lens is amazing! An effective 600 mm and on my Olympus OM-D E-M5 it works very, very well. The image stabilization allows me to take photos at insanely slow shutter speeds even with the max aperture issue. I have been having a ton of fun with this lens.

Something else I haven't read much about and is near and dear to my heart is bokeh. While the near focus on this lens is not super close, it does a GREAT job on getting close-ups. At the minimum focus distance (6 feet or something there about) at 300 mm, I can fill the frame with a butterfly and the flower he is sitting on. And the bokeh is very good. I would compare it to my Nikon 200 mm f/4 dedicated macro lens in that respect. It isn't as good as my 85 mm f/1.4 but then nothing else is either!

I really like this lens and am glad I bought it. I did get the hood and a polarizer for it at the same time. And yes even with the polarizer, I am getting very satisfying shots.

With this lens/camera combination and my Fuji x100s on the other hip, I am ready for just about anything, and travelling lite to boot.

I highly recommend this lens.

Its a powerful compact zoom that is a little on the slow side, I have been impressed with its sharpness and
it is surprisingly versatile. It would have scored a perfect score had it been just a tad bit faster on the f-stop
but still, the auto focus performance and sharpness are surprisingly good.

I am a long term nikon DSLR user and had to change camera systems due to a hand injury. I am currentlyusing the olympus omd and the addition of this lens gets so much closer to my old dslr gear! Great lens - love it and use it a few times a week.

Compare this to Canon 600mm and you can't go wrong. A fraction of the price. Yes you will need to stabilize the camera body, and focus could be a little sharper, but you really can't find better value for your money. This makes a very nice addition to a mft camera set.
