Pros: Robust construction, equipped with lampshade, good sharpness from 70 to 200mm then waning a little, usable (with possible adapter) on all Olympus bodies, sufficient brightness for the cost (low on the second-hand market), close up capacity with 1:2 ratio.

Cons: slow autofocus; sometimes causes strong overexposure, not as sharp as his successors, devoid of trestle attack

Opinion: Bought used, and flanked first by the 75/300II Olympus and now by 100/300 Panasonic. In the vast 4/3 lens park it is the only lens I know to allow the close-up to less than a meter with good results (read frame well filled). The focus is slow, but used on OM-D E-M1 with phase search, acceptable, and with focus tracking allows the photo micro-face in even difficult conditions without letting the subject escape; the depth of field is certainly greater than that of a macro lens, and the detail is not so lacking. In the photograph of animals he gets away with it, if they are not moving fast; at 300mm sharpness cannot compete with that of newer products. Recommended in conjunction with a younger colleague.

Pros: Objective of good quality. Solid construction and fairly accurate built with materials of good quality. Weight and very compact. Interesting and decent yield macro function. Optical quality pretty good. Goal is not very bright (but normal for the price class) and MAF not exceptionally fast. Price slightly higher.

Cons: Discrete elongation during zooming. Varifocal lens which entails the need for realignment of the MAF to vary the focal length with repercussion on the speed of MAF species in AF-C. Other limits are the rotation of the front lens while zooming in which impairs the use of filters such as circular polarizers and the lack of a ring attachment to the tripod (not available even as an option), although in truth a lot of weight content allows for easy free-hand and not excessively unbalanced the body-goal.

Opinion: Lens with decent yield already at room temperature, is at the center than at the edges and on almost the entire zoom range (up to 250-260 mm), and up to 300 asi softens a little. In conjunction with the extender Ec-14 shows no signs of excessive decay of the image, except that the maximum focal length. Also recommended to those who have a relatively small body as the entry level Olympus (E-400-410-420-450, E-510-520, E-600-620) better though if equipped with an Image Stabilizer.
