The Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 300mm F4.0 IS PRO lens rounds off Olympus’ PRO line-up with no fewer than three world first benchmarks: Firstly, it is the world’s most compact and lightweight telephoto lens. Second, it has the world’s most powerful 6- step image stabilisation system (in combination with the matching Olympus camera models). And third, it boasts the shortest focusing distance for telemacro photography in the category: just 1.4m from subject to camera.
This makes it ideal for fast-moving professionals who need powerful, top-notch lenses that match the usability of their small-format, Micro Four Thirds cameras. The Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 300mm F4.0 IS PRO lens unpacks its full potential when attached to Olympus models such as the OM-D E-M1 or E-M5 Mark II. For example, it achieves autofocus speeds of less than 300ms and its state-of-the-art IS syncs with the unique3 5-axis OM-D system. The silent shutter action complements quiet OM-D motors at sound-sensitive events while the dust-, freeze- and splash-proof build makes this the go-to telephoto for nature and outdoor sports.
With the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 300mm 1:4.0 IS PRO, Olympus can now offer professional photographers a MFT-compatible lens for every focal length, from 14mm to 600mm (35mm equivalent). The range combines M.ZUIKO’s first-class optical pedigree with the practicality demanded by photographers working on challenging projects that demand minimum clutter and maximum mobility, wherever in the world that might be. At 1270g the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 300mm F4.0 IS PRO Lens tips the scales at about a quarter the weight of available SLR lenses with equivalent focal lengths. With only 227mm in length, the Olympus is also considerably more compact than any of the comparable lenses. As any pro who has ever tried to board a plane with one of those will confirm, in terms of handheld manoeuvrability and convenience, the SLR models can’t compete.
Olympus has established itself as the world leader in in-camera image stabilisation for compact system cameras and has expanded this expertise to include in-lens technology.
Owners of the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 300mm F4.0 IS PRO Lens benefit from a world-first Sync IS mechanism that coordinates with the 5-axis system fitted to the OM-D E-M1 and E-M5 Mark II models. The result is enhanced compensation by 6 EV steps. This stabilises handheld stills and the EVF display, and reduces shake noticeably when recording video.
The Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 300mm F4.0 IS PRO Lens is not only attractive in terms of weight, size and stability, it is also equipped with a series of thoughtful features that make this one of the more versatile telephoto lenses on the market, not least because it is one of the easiest to use. The focus clutch allows the photographer to switch between pre-defined focus settings and the len’s own super-fast, high-precision AF. On the top of the lens barrel there are three switches that can likewise be operated without glancing up from the viewfinder, using just one finger. On the left, the L-Fn switch can be customised to trigger one of 27 assignable functions. Next along is the On/Off switch for the in-lens IS, for use with a tripod or stable perch. The other switch toggles the focussing area. The short-shot potential of this lens is likewise exceptional, offering magnification of 0.48x1 with as little as 1.4 metres between the subject and the camera.
