About Olympus 75-300mm

This Olympus 75-300mm Bundle comes with $49.95 worth of free accessories including a New Leaf PLUS 3yr Lens Warranty and Shipping is free! .

The Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 75-300mm F4.8-6.7 II Lens is a telephoto zoom lens that is compatible with the Micro Four Thirds standard. The 75-300mm focal length gives a 35mm-equivalent zoom range of 150-600mm for a standard to super-telephoto reach.

The lens construction integrates one Super ED (extra-low dispersion) and two ED lens elements to help minimize chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range while also contributing to overall image sharpness, clarity and color fidelity. Three HR (high-refractive index) elements are also incorporated into the design to reduce the overall weight and size of the lens and also promote an overall higher image quality.

Lens elements also feature Olympus' ZERO (Zuiko Extra-Low Reflection Optical) coating to reduce internal and surface reflections and ghosting that are more prevalent when shooting in difficult lighting conditions, such as backlit situations. The ZERO coating also provides greater durability to the lens surfaces.

The MSC (Movie & Still Compatible) autofocus system provides quick, accurate auto focusing that is especially suited to working with fast-moving subject matter. By employing an internal focusing mechanism, the lens is also able to function in a quiet and smooth manner that greatly benefits its use when recording movies.

Earth's Best 600mm (equiv) Hand-Holdable

Mount the 75-300mm on an E-M5 and you have a 2-pound rig with which you can EASILY hand hold the equivalent of 600mm telephoto shots. Focus is razor sharp EVERY time, and motion blur is non-existent EVERY time. Images are consistently sharper (viewed at 100%) than hand held shots from my Nikon D800E and the new Nikkor 80-400mm.

Good Reach, Sharp Images

By

I am having good success with photographing butterflies, dragonflies, and other insects with this lens.

works with polarizer

By

from LA, Ca  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Yes the lens works with a polarizer, but the lenshood is deep so it's not easy to turn the filter. I've noticed that polarizers do not give me the same effect in digital cameras as it did on film. But this is not a scientific test, just an impression

Good for Wildlife

By

from Indiana  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

This lens is light and offers a very good range for the price. I use this lens for wildlife and I find it to be sharp and fast focusing. The only issue is the light limitations with the f stop range. It's not a 2.8 or 4.0 prime but with good light it will deliver.

Great lens

By

from wisconsin  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I've just moved to the M4/3 system - formerly shot with a Canon 60D. This lens is SOOOOO much lighter and smaller. It's recommended to use a tripod with such a long lens, but if the subject is well-lit, hand-held shots are still sharp.

Meets expectations

By

from Seattle, WA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I like how I can now get closeups of birds and animals that I was not able to get with the 40-150mm lens. This is much bulkier, but it is worth it. The pictures are sharp as the OMD stabilization system makes a big difference.

Great Lens!

By

from Murfreesboro, TN  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This is a great lens. I am using it on an Olympus OM-D E-M5 body. I read many reviews and the debates over this vs the Panasonic lens. Both sound like great lenses, but I chose the Olympus lens for a couple of reasons. I decided on the EM-5 because of its small size and light weight and wanted my lenses to be the same. The Olympus lens is lighter and several other reviewers felt it had better glass and better build quality. Also since the OMD- EM-5 has internal image stabilization, I did not see the need for in the lens stabilization of the Panasonic. It just seemed like something else that could eventually malfunction. I am using the lens for nature photography as well as photography of people. I like the image stabilization, build quality, light weight, compactness, and most of all, image quality of the entire system. I also have the Olympus 12 - 50 mm, and 40mm - 150mm lenses. My only complaints are the high price and the fact that lens hoods are not included with the lenses. I am very satisfied with all the lenses and camera body. I would also like to add that I have no affiliation with Adorama, but I have always had excellent service from them and I highly recommend them as a source! They are responsive, quick to deliver, offer no hassles and I have had zero problems with them. In fact I am alway amazed at how fast I get my equipment from them. I am totally satisfied with this camera and lens system and this source.

Equivalent 600mm is Lots of Fun

By

from Atlanta, GA  -  Pro Photographer

Mostly, this lens is fun if you already love the OM-D. Its 300mm full-tele translates to an effective 600mm. My tests suggest it is plenty sharp at that focal length, IF you have plenty of light. Be warned that lower-light, hand-held shots at higher ISOs will not enlarge particularly well. Best to use a tripod, whenever possible. Tiny bit of lens creep when walking. Still, it is relatively small, light and fun to take along on an all-day outing. I'm hoping someone will publish results of a shootout of this lens and a full-frame prime such as Nikon's $9,800 600mm. Surely the Oly will come in second but it would be fascinating to compare identical scenes shot with both and see if there is $8,800 worth of difference.

Excellent Zoom lens Addition

Great Lens

By

from Waterbury,CT  -  Photo Enthusiast

Brought this lens to go with my p3 for nature shoting of birds. I have gotten some good shots. With my age sometimes it would be better used with a tripod. Love the size of it. Much lighter than a normal lens, but it is not cheap and I needed the lens to be light.
