It has taken Panasonic a long time to realize the one of the biggest strengths of M4/3 is exploiting the 2x crop factor. They have now done that with the 100-300mm lens. This lens is the equivalent of a 200mm-600mm f/5.6! Wow (In 1:1 Tele Extender Video mode you get a 2.6x extender fro a 520-1560mm f/5.6 equivalent lens). If you check your specs you will see 600mm prime lenses come one stop faster and cost around oh $14,000. That is not a typo. They also weigh 11 pounds. So they are hardly something you would tote around. Now ideally, Panasonic would come out with a 300mm f/2.8 and f/4. Those would be super lenses on the M4/3. However, they would be bigger and heavier than this lens. So this lens is perfect for bright daylight shooting of birds, sports, safari animals. Just about anything you need to reach out and touch.

This is Panasonic's largest M4/3 lens so far and weighs in at 1.14 lbs. To give you a comparison, Nikon's 70-300 mm lens weighs in at 1.6 lbs. Unfortunately at 4.9" long it is not as small as I think it should be. The Nikon 70-300 VR is 5.6" long so not that much bigger and that is an FX lens. However, with that said this is a solid lens with great construction. It is typical of all of their heigh end lenses such as the 8mm Fisheye and 7-14mm wide angle. Something to note is this lens will be unwieldy to use on all the Olympus M4/3 and the Panasonic GF lines.

This lens takes very nice photos and the autofocus is very fast. Especially on the GH2. The Image Stabilization works as advertised.

Overall, if you are looking to take pictures of birds, your kids soccer games, or anything else that you would use a 600mm lens then this is the one to use on the M4/3 system.

As a comparison the Olympus 75-300mm f/4.8-6.

I've had the lens for about 6 months now and I think it's been a great purchase. The pros and cons for me are pretty simple:

Pros:
- Great range and pretty sharp throughout (very sharp 100-200mm). It's approximately the same field of view you get using a 100-400mm f4-f5.6 on a DX sensor, or 200-600mm on an FX sensor. I picked it over the 200mm version because if I need to shoot long, I might as well spend a little more and have the reach (telecoverters are out of the question on these lenses), plus I'd rather have 200mm at the middle of the range and be sharp as all get out than have it at the end of the range and a little soft.

- Excellent to good wide open at all lengths. No, not tack sharp at 300mm f5.6. Good (and quite a bit better than "good enough"). If you're viewing your pics online, you'll be very stoked; if you're making prints up to 13x19 or so, you'll be stoked. If you're pixel-peeping, what the heck are you doing with a $400 lens and an m4/3 body? Sack-up and get a D800, 5DM3 or a medium format body and be done with it. I'm sure the corners are a little wack, but what lens with this reach and maximum aperture isn't? I'd say it's better than the Nikon or Canon 70-300mm f4-f5.6 for DX, with more effective reach given the m4/3 sensor size.

- Decently-priced for the range. If you can get a good one used, I'd always say go that route, but $400-$500 for this lens is about what you'd expect. Amazon will probably do a crappy job of packing the lens (sorry; it's the truth), but you can always return it if there's a problem.

- Small and light: this isn't an impress your friends with your bulging forearms lens. It's easy to carry and you look like a tourist using it.

When I got this lens, I expected it to be very heavy. I was surprised! It is heavy but doesn't feel at all as heavy as my Panasonic 14-140mm lens. You'd think the fact that it is longer than the 14-140mm lens that it would be awkward but it isn't to me. But I did downsize from a Canon 50D with a 100-400mm L lens and that setup weighed in at over 6 pounds so the 2 pounds of this setup is much lighter anyway. The quality of the 100-300mm lens is good. It is not spectacular but it still is very good. It comes in at 600mm whereas my Canon L lens was right at 640mm. In comparing the same shots at full telephoto, there isn't much difference and surprisingly, the quality of the shots are very similar. This lens costs $529 whereas the Canon L lens costs $1500! I am very happy with the results of this lens and so far, all the Panasonic/Leica lenses I've purchased. The shots are not as good in quality as the Canon EOS series but close and at less than half the cost and 1/3 the weight, I am very happy once again. I now own the G2, 14-140mm, 100-300mm, 45mm Leica macro and the 20mm f1.7. All of these lenses and the camera with the spare batteries, memory cards, charger and other miscellaneous gear in my camera bag weigh in at just over 7 pounds. My Canon setup with not as many lenses weighed in at 12 pounds. My Canon setup set me back over $5,000. My current setup cost just over $2,500. Half the weight and half the price. I'm sold on Micro four thirds!!

I purchased this lens to mount on a Panasonic DMC-G2 micro four thirds camera. With great anticipation, I took the camera/lens combo with me on an early morning wildlife shoot. I was a little daunted when conditions turned out to be dismal...misty rain and very low light. However, I figured that if the lens was all I hoped it would be, I would get some good shots in spite of the conditions. A number of deer came to within 20' of me, and I was extremely pleased with the quality and detail of the shots I took of them - fine details were abundant with little noise, and with minimal editing, I got some very pleasing results! Later in the day, after the sun came out, I took the same camera/lens combo with me on a stroll around our ranch. My first impression was how easy the camera/lens combo was to carry around, and I am a small, petite lady. While on my stroll, I found some macro photo ops of ants doing what ants do...and what excellent results! At the 100 end of the lens, with the camera set on IA, I brought home shot with great clarity and detail. Even my pro photographer friends were impressed. So far, this has been one of the more brilliant purchases I've made, and I plan to put the lens to lots of use. I will post photos I've taken with the lens to the lens' product page...please check there for my shots.
