    Olympus 300mm f/2.8 Reviews

    300mm f/2.8 ED Lens is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Big Tuna This is one Super Lensthe tack sharpness though out all the stops is fantastic. It is quick to focus and great in low light situations. This is a heavy lens, but it gos with me everywhere. Very well built and a dependable performer. I do not use image stabilization in the camera; therefore a tripod is a Must in most all of my shooting situations. Very expensive compared to other manufactures, but I do not regret spending the money for this lens. I feel the image quality is surpassed that of the other brands. The only drawbacks are the cost, weight and lack of a true lens cap. The Big Tuna is my #1 lens

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zuiko SHG lens Rocks! This is the 2nd Olympus SHG lens that I have, the first is the 150mm F2 lens. IQ is amazing, color is as real as it can gets and works well with 1.4TC & 2TC. Used it mainly for bird photography and its not heavy for a '600mm' view, good for long hike and no worries about bad weather as all SHG glass are weather seal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Wildlife Lens Best birding lens I have used, sharpness is unparalleled even wide open at f2.8. Of course with the crop factor on an Olympus E-3 it is a 600mm lens at f2.8. Focus is accurate and fast. It is a trifle heavy but with all that great Olympus glass that is to be expected. Lens comes with two ND filters and an outstanding polarizing filter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent lens! I rented this lens for the NCAA Lacrosse finals and it didn't disappoint. It was extremely quick with focusing, even with a 1.4x teleconverter on the lens. I even hand held it for the heck of it and it is heavy, but it is so sweet to have a 600mm focal length!
