Low Light tele lens | Rating: ★★★★★
“Because of the 4:3 systems 2x multiplier, this lens delivers the same reach as the traditional 300mm 2.8 lens on regular cameras. and it is faster by one stop. This means when a normal camera shoots at 125th sec, this lens give you 1/250th sec. Sharpness and contrast is outstanding. the lens is half the weight of a similar lens for a Nikon. This lens have been with me to and allowed me to photograph in low-light when normal lenses just are not fast enough.” – by Bo Lorentzen

too sharp sometimes | Rating: ★★★★★
“It’s enough to say this lens is belong to Super High Quality grade from Olympus. The lens is very sharp and sometimes too sharp. hard to PP because of the sharpness so you need to add more sharpness if you resized the photo or just crop 100% and you’ll be fine. It’s heavy but worth the weight and the money. the contrast and the colors just perfect. fast focus but a version with SWD would be super fast.” – by Don Ali
