Olympus 75-300mm f/4.8-6.7 II ED M.Zuiko Digital review by Mr Fussy
Review Date: 9/27/2014 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Total Spent: $550.00| Rating: 9 

Pros: Compact, lightweight, fast focus, afordable.
Cons: Image quality a bit soft at 300MM ... but for the price!

I am coming off a Nikon, latest being a D300. I could NEVER afford nor carry a 600mm Nikon. Key advantages.
1. Getting bird and other nature shots not previously achievable. Don't underestimate this point, a good quality shot is better than an outstanding quality shot you couldn't take.
2. I can carry this all day, easily, not even in a backpack.
3. It was affordable, frankly $550 is a bargain when used to paying Nikon prices.
4. I am getting sharp images at 300mm (600 equivalent) hand held at 1/250 sec. Which I am very happy about. E-M1 stabilization at work.
5. Cant wait for the 300mm Pro prime due in 2015.
6. Light enough to use the E-M1 tripod support. Doesn't need its own tripod collar.
Summary happy with this lens and delighted I switched from Nikon DX to OMD E-M1.

Olympus 75-300mm f/4.8-6.7 II ED M.Zuiko Digital review by tdonaldp
Review Date: 7/2/2014 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Total Spent: $549.00| Rating: 9 

Pros: light weight, reasonably sharp-I get photos that are sharper than I got with nikon D800 + nikon 300mm F2.8

Over all rated 9- good value for the money
Construction 9. It is plastic, no lens hood
Optically 9. Sharp, lens does not creep, i.e. feather detail shows clearly - i.e. the feather components, color rendition is accurate, have not shot to induce flare. No noticeable barrel or pin cushion or chromatic aberration noted subjectively but suspect if bench tested it may?. I am getting pictures I was never able to get with my nikon gear - that I have traded in for the olympus system.--no regrets
