Olympus 75-300mm f/4.8-6.7 overview

  • 1Description

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.

Telephoto zoom is designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras and provides a 150-600mm equivalent focal length range.
One Super ED (extra-low dispersion) and two ED elements help to reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing throughout the zoom range for improved clarity and color accuracy.
Three high refractive index elements are used to correct spherical aberrations for greater sharpness with reduced distortion.
A ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating has been applied to individual elements to minimize lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.
Movie & Still Compatible (MSC) autofocus system benefits both photo and video applications due to its smooth, quiet, and fast performance.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth bokeh quality.

    Olympus 75-300mm f/4.8-6.7 reviews

    M.Zuiko Digital ED 75-300mm f/4.8-6.7 II Lens is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 113.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact, Light, and Wonderful Got this lens on Pre-order as soon as they announced it. It is a wonderful addition to the m4/3 system. Very light. Like all the the m4/3 lenses in contrast to their comparable brothers. It delivers fine detail through the entire zoom range, and paired with the hood shoots very well in adverse light conditions. The zoom is smooth and quiet. Manually focuses comparable to the rest of the olympus line up, if you like that kind of thing. Picks out individuals and details in a crowd nicely. Has a beautiful bokeh which makes for striking wildlife portraits at distance. I would absolutely recommend this lens to round out a m4/3 collection.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than I expected. I have been using the Oly 4:3 system for about 8 years and would not switch to the M4:3 system until the EM-1 came out. I've kept some of my 4:3 lenses, but came to like the small lightweight M4:3 lenses too. I am patiently waiting for the new Pro 300/f/4, but decided I need someth long in the mean time. Oly put the 75-300 on sale and I reluctantly ordered it. I tested it against my 150/f/2 + TC, and much to my astonishment the tiny 75300 compared favorably. It also focuses quickly. It's painfully slow, but if you use it carefully (on a tripod) you will get surprisingly good images. I highly recommend it. Would give it five stars if it included the lens hood..a must.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from After 2 1/2 years Good results can be had with this lens, but good technique and appropriate camera settings are required when used at the long end. I found single center point autofocus and either slow or high speed continuous electronic shutter works well. This will greatly increase your chances of getting a sharp photo. Of course, manual focus with magnification and peaking will be needed when shooting thru or around branches or brush. The only other comparable lens at this time and at this price point is the Panasonic Lumix 100-300 f4-5.6 ll Power O.I.S. which from what I hear, is also a good lens.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 600mm in the palm of your hand...steady Have used the lens now for 2 weeks. Subjects are deer, birds, compression in landscapes. Can't beat the tiny size, low weight of the lens, so easy to carry. I find the results to be surprisingly good from 250mm on down. At 300mm is shows alot of compromises but still very good. At 300mm I found a tripod to be a must for best results. Hand held is ok but not the best. The lens is slow. That is, max aperture is small at 300 its needs lots of light for a fast enough shutter speed. Part of the small, light compromise. Focus is fast. No complaints. Overall I would buy it again. No question.The compromises for a small, light easy to carry lens are understandable. Its results that count on that question it delivers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Range! I love the range. I purchased to take on a trip to India to Rathambore tiger preserve next month. Leaving my big Canon guns home. In my testing around home I got plenty of sharp bird photos. I have a Canon 800mm L IS and a Canon 500mm f4L Is . Good technique and experience shooting long lenses takes time. Because of its size you may be tempted to forego tripods and the required shutter speed and ISO in order to have good results. This can have disastrous consequences. For repeatable and good percentage shots you MUST observe the rules

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing lens for no bigger than it is I just had a chance to try the lens out this past weekend at a botanical garden near me. There was a special cactus that only blooms once a year and I was there, each one was about 20' from me, as that is a close as you could get to them and the 300mm setting really brought them in for some nice pictures. One thing that you have to be aware of is the f stop on this lens at 300mm is only 6.7 so watch you have a high enough iso so you can stay at 1/500 of a second or the pictures will blur or if the iso is too high the pictures will be grainy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well with the M-1 I was using a full size Canon with a 400mm but on hikes it was a lot to carry. I am very happy with the Olympus 75-300 on my M-1 body as it is so much lighter and smaller. I was prepared for a drop off in picture quality but that was much less a problem than I first imagined. This lens has good sharpness though it's a little slow to capture the light, so I need to shoot at a higher ISO usually between 800 and 1,600. The image does not show too much noise so my noise reduction filter (Topaz) does the trick.
    Date published: 2013-12-29
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed I had hoped that this lens would be a longer reach alternative to the Olympus 40-150 lens that I've been trying to use for wildlife. On the plus side this lens is lightweight for the reach, is a nice size match to the E-M1 that I'm using, and usually focuses quickly and reliably on that camera even at 300mm. On the negative side, it's just not that sharp over most of its range. My copy was only acceptably sharp at around 250mm. It's soft at 300mm and has considerably poorer image quality than my 40-150mm zoom where they overlap. I've seen the opposite claim from others, so perhaps I just got a bad copy. At any rate, it's not a good value to me as a slow 250mm prime so I'm looking elsewhere.
