A word of caution about this and other telephoto lenses negative reviews. The use of a 300mm lens is already demanding in terms of technique. Image stabilization takes only care of camera shake but moving subjects require very short exposures to avoid blur. If the writer does not specify if they are shooting Raw or jpegs there is little value in their conclusions. Additionally, you don't know if they know how to properly process the Raw files and/or what's the setting for in-camera sharpening in jpeg. Lastly, many people shoot on a tripod without turning off image stabilization (a must).
11/16/16 addendum: I am replacing the older pictures with new ones of Echo Bay in New Rochelle, NY, just before and with the latest super moon. All pics are from Raw files developed in PS 6 with the same treatment.
Pic 1: 40mm (80mm eq), f/16, 1/320sec, ISO 800
Pic 2: 70 (140)mm, f/16, 1/32sec, ISO800, tripod
Pic 3: 62 (124)mm, f/16, 1/6sec, ISO800, tripod
I use the old Olympus 50-200mm lens which is just a fantastic lens and one of my all time favorites. However it is a big and heavy lens. So when out family takes a vacation and I want to have a longer focal length lens on hand, this 40-150mm does the job just fine with little added weight to my gear and still offering high image quality. I normally shoot wider angle so I don't need a long focal length much while traveling, but I can carry this one along without feeling I am dragging along a brick in my backpack, which is important when walking a city all day long.
Would recommend to anyone who wants a good quality image at longer focal lengths and especially for your travel bag.
Unfortunately I had the case only for a smaller lense, so I recommended to always keep it separately dettached when trasporting it and in separate case as the bottom plastic part of the body doesnt seem very solid.
Update: I used this lens to capture the 2017 Total solar Eclipse. I was able to capture solar flares during totality. I'm really impressed with this lens for the price.
Yes, this doesn't open particularly wide, so it's not suited to indoor or dimly lit shots... but if you just want a cheap, compact telephoto, I can't think of anything better.
One final note: even though it's entirely plastic, the build quality feels surprisingly solid.
