A versatile and relatively compact telephoto zoom, the M.Zuiko Digital ED 75-300mm f/4.8-6.7 II from Olympus is a 150-600mm equivalent lens for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. The optical design makes use of three low dispersion elements and three high refractive index elements to control both chromatic and spherical aberrations for a high degree of clarity and sharpness throughout the zoom range. A ZERO coating has also been applied to help reduce lens flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions. Additionally, this lens utilizes a Movie & Stills Compatible AF system to achieve smooth, fast, and near-silent focusing performance to benefit both photo and movie applications.
- Micro Four Thirds System
- 150-600mm (35mm Equivalent)

Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 75-300mm f/4.8-6.7... Reviews
Very pleased with my purchase
Any camera and lens represents a compromise, and this is no exception. Trading size and weight, I got a lightweight super-telephoto at a very good price that delivers quality images in good light without need for a tripod or monopod. There certainly are better lenses in the Olympus line that cover the same territory. But they are bigger and heavier, and far more costly. For me, a dedicated hobbiest who purchased a clean second-hand lens, this was a good purchase.
Good basic solid lens
Much better than I thought it would be for the cost. Focuses fast, nice images, and works very well with the OM-1 III I have. Struggles in low light somewhat but as long as you know the limitations is a very good lens for the price. JKA
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 75-300mm f/4.8-6.7 II Lens
The lens is a magnificent lens producing high clarity, excellent color and easy to use.
Mediocre and poor craftsmanship
Very disappointed. This lens is not worth the money. Very stiff and jerky zoom mechanism-making it impossible to get smooth motion. My Canon 70-300 IS II USM crushes this lens in picture quality and craftsmanship.
Great lens!! Excellent service and shipping!
For the price, it is a surprisingly good lens. Quite sharp through the range. The one drawback is when turning through the mm range it has a tendency to stick. From what I can find on the internet and from a friend who also has this lens, it is a fairly common problem.
Better performance than I expected!
I honestly did not expect this lens to perform as well as it has. It has produced some very good images, even when extended out to the 300mm range. Images are sharp and detailed. I would recommend this lens for anyone who cannot afford the more expensive ones, but still want a telephoto lens to take wildlife and other pictures with.
As with all equipment I purchase from B & H, as soon as it's delivered, I test it. This lens is no exception. I opened the box, attached the lens and tested it. At 75 mm the lens is sharp and beautiful. At full telephoto, it won't focus! No matter how much I tried the image would not focus. I must send it back. I wanted to like this lens but could not justify the purchase with such poor image quality at the 300 mm range.
