It is critical with this lens that the shutter speed range from a minimum of 160th to 640th when handheld to avoid image blur.
Good reach, needs a lot of practice to setup the camera depending on the light . needs often to shot over ISO 800 to 4000 at 300 mm ( to have shutter speed over 600 and so have clear pictures)
Good quality, shipped fast,
So far so good.
I’ve been using this for about a month now, so feel I can give an honest review as it has been tested. I tend to shoot in RAW and so files are not quite as sharp as JPEG’s straight out of my camera. With this in mind I am pleasantly surprised at the sharpness at the full end of the zoom. I do still add a little sharpening in processing but this isn’t unusual and no hardship.
I've owned Olympus OMD cameras for 5 years now and have several 4/3rds lenses. I recently upgraded to the EM-1 Mark I which of course is micro 4/3rds. I bought an adaptor so that I could continue to use my old lenses, but have to admit the 75-300mm telephoto was pretty dire. Focus was soft to say the least and trying to track moving objects (I do a lot of wildlife photography) was abysmal.
I'm just learning, but I can achieve photographs to be proud of with this lens, and I'll hopefully get better down the line.
A tad sharper than the mark 1 version, with better contrast, a much lower price, and a better appearance.
Well built, light and compact for the focal length. Excellent image quality up to 200mm, very good at 300mm, even wide open. Better at 300mm than a crop at 150mm from my excellent 40-150mm 4.0-5.6, which was my key metric. Very pleased with images of birds and other wildlife, and the moon, with contrasty rendering and pleasing colours. Focusing fast and quiet in low light.
I have only had the chance to try this on a fairly cloudy late October day so far on an EPL-7 camera. It is, unsurprisingly the biggest lens I have used on a micro 4/3rds camera, however, a hand on the zoom ring is enough to balance the outfit. There are two surprises; firstly how good the image quality is for such a long telephoto zoom at this price point and secondly that I can get sharp images at 300mm (600mm equivalent) hand held. The latter is largely down to the brilliant IS on the camera, Olympus' cheapest PEN, but the technical spec of the EPL-7 is the same as the original OMD EM-10 except that the PEN allows you to geotag your images through the smartphone app. I had not expected to be able to use this lens without a tripod. A great value lens made even better by Olympus' current offer which should allow £75 cash back.
I'm writing this review as a long-time user of micro four thirds products and as a part-time pro photog who mainly uses a Sony DSLR/SLT setup. I have shot telephoto lenses for around 30 years now on film and digital. The 70/5-300 on DSLRs has tended to be a maligned lens because it is traditionally a fairly cheap and cheerful 'kit' kind of lens that folks often buy who don't care too much about ultimate image quality. I can certainly vouch for OEM and Sigma/Tamron 70-300s to be very mediocre - once you get to about 180mm+ they lose massive amounts of contrast and resolution and the build quality is often pretty low, with slow AF to boot. But reviews of this little m 4/3 lens are interesting - some say it is good but not great, some say it is good up to 200mm, some say it is mediocre and out-gunned by the more expensive Panasonic Lumix 100-300 lens for m 4/3.
Small, light and sharp wide open from 75 to ~220mm. From there to 300mm you have to stop down to f8 to improve a little bit the so-and-so IQ. But don't let me be missunderstood: this is an excellent VFM lens, for both amateur and andvanced users - especially under good light conditions. I'm very pleased!
Sturdy and gives excellent results. There is always a stability problem with long lenses but provided you know what you are doing that can be overcome. The attached image was one of a burst of about a dozen shots. Really pleased with it.
Best zoom lens ever owned. Have been using on EM1 and EM5 and sharp results even when fully extended and perfect for an enthusiastic amateur like myself.
Fab lens, had no issues with it
Amazing reach, medium IQ. Why no hood? Plastic - so light fantastic. My copy is very solidly made. A star knocked off because Olympus don't include a hood).
Compact, solidly built, and excellent image quality. Great match for any micro four thirds camera (though no image stabilisation for Panasonic users).
