Olympus 300mm f/2.8 Zuiko Digital review by Ocean
Review Date: 12/30/2012 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Total Spent: $8,000.00| Rating: 9 

 
Pros: extreme sharp, solid construction, even very good with converters
Cons: to heavy, no SWD-SF

the best 300 mm I've ever used, even better the the newest Canon and Nikon stuff.
But it is very heavy for a 300 mm.
Optics nearly perfect!

Olympus 300mm f/2.8 Zuiko Digital review by MartinM
Review Date: 9/5/2012 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Total Spent: None indicated| Rating: 9 

 
Pros: 600mm, f/2.8, weather sealing, IQ, size
Cons: price, weight

This is a really nice lens. An incredible reach paired with sharpness. A dream.


IQ and build are outstanding.


Weight is a topic. I had it on a hike of about an hour hanging around my neck. Not exactly what you would like to take for a long walk.


The price tag is ridiculous high. I will never ever be able to afford it. I rent it ;-)

Olympus 300mm f/2.8 Zuiko Digital review by Hawaii-Geek
Review Date: 12/5/2007 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Total Spent: None indicated| Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Size for 600mm f2.8, and f2.8 performance
Cons: none

At f2.8 efl 600mm during the day it is Handholdable on a e510. and the Bokeh is a WOW! Fast Focusing, and sharp imho.
Posted my test shots here: http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1022&message=25484814
Did I say wide open f2.8 is a WoW! lol
Yes, and I did carry it around all afternoon in the sun. And it was really rare that I missed a focus.
* Surprisingly easy to shoot with.
