Product features in detail

Construction

At just 1270g (1475g with its tripod adaptor), it is the most compact and lightweight telephoto lens available. In fact it is around ¼ of the weight of current equivalent focal length SLR lenses and is only 227mm in length (280mm when using the hood), so also happens to be aircraft hand luggage-compliant.

Stabilisation

The lens incorporates a Sync IS mechanism which coordinates with the 5-axis system fitted to the E-M5 Mark II and OM-D E-M1 models. This results in 6 EV steps of enhanced compensation and minimises shaking when capturing video.

Focusing

For telemacro photography, this lens has the shortest focusing distance in its category, ranging from 14mm to 600mm. Autofocus is under 300ms and the focus clutch enables you to switch between it and predetermined focus settings.

Weatherproof design

With a dustproof, freezeproof (down to -10°C), and splashproof design, outdoor shots won't be hampered by dust storms or showers for example, so this weather sealed robust lens is ideal for wildlife or sports photography, but performs equally well across other areas.

With a focal length equivalent to 600mm in 35mm format, the Digital ED 300mm f/4 IS PRO lens is ideal for sports, wildlife and action photographers who use the Olympus OM-D range of cameras. This PRO lens is designed for speed, compactness and versatility, particularly when combined with either the M.Zuiko Digital 2x MC-20 Teleconverter or the Olympus MC-14 1.4x TeleConverter, both of which extend the focal width whilst maintaining weather sealing integrity.

Adding TC’s will enable the user to enjoy super-telephoto macro photography, whilst retaining clear image quality thanks to advanced optics employed in this Olympus lens. Browse our complete micro four thirds lens line-up here to accompany this model.

Don’t forget to add lens filters in the form of either a UV filter to reduce the effect of super telephoto long range haze or a circular polariser to reduce glare. We recommend the following filters for compatibility and excellent performance with this lens:

Our Verdict

The Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 300mm f/4 IS PRO lens is ideal for photographers on the move with a compact and lightweight size that is easy to travel with. With an equivalent focal width of 600mm this lens perfectly demonstrates the benefits of micro four thirds system which full frame photographers can only dream of. Its weatherproof nature ensures it can survive in harsh environmental conditions, making it perfect for wildlife and sports photography. With enhanced stabilisation at up to 6-stops of benefit the Digital ED 300mm f/4 is also well suited for video and one of the most accomplished options in the Olympus lens range.

With an f/4 fixed aperture users can create soft out of focus areas to separate their subject perfectly, setting this model apart from other options including the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 100-400mm lens which has a variable aperture and lesser optical stabilisation. Choose this lens for telephoto and tele-macro subjects where you’ll be able to beat the elements, gain really impressive image results and produce stunning movies without the need for a bulky, heavy lens in your bag.
