      This what the micro four thirds group needed. A real good serious big telephoto. I have been using it on sailboat races, shooting from land and it has the range and sharpness needed to reach out and be able to crop if needed. And still be sharp in a cropped photo. Great long distance bird lens. 600 mm and with the tel adapter 840 mm that you can hand hold because of five way stability built into the lens. You need this. I did.

      The Olympus 300 mm f4 pro is simply a fantastic prime lens. I use it exclusively for wildlife photography. Mated with the new EM1MkII this lens enables me to get 75-90% success rate on BIF. The autofocus is fast and the additional stabilization control is very useful. I know it is pricey but much less than what I would have had to pay for an equivalent lens with my Nikon cameras.

      Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 300 mm f/4.0 ED IS PRO
      It took Olympus quite a long time to launch a 4/300 telephoto lens on the market. The first announcements concerning such a device were made already in February 2014 and at that time it seemed it would be a lens without any optical stabilizationFull Review
