Pros:Very light, compact, mounts screw ND filters, cheap, made in general.
Opinion:Paid 280 euros used, with lampshade, for me it is a godsend to be able to make long treks in the mountains without feeling the weight. In full light the results are excellent (compared to its segment) but as soon as the light goes down, it limps. In aid comes the excellent oly body stabilizer that allows you to stretch the times a lot even by freehand (I shot at 1/60 without motion). In birdlife the mm is never enough and I always find myself shooting at 300mm but I find that there is no drastic drop in sharpness... indeed, perhaps I have a well-made specimen. It can mount screw ND filters to get creative shots. Too bad it's not tropicalized but it would mean demanding the full barrel and the drunk wife. I don't regret it at all.

Pros:Good hike, light, good price
Cons:The long part for which you take it, that is over 200, is too soft
Opinion:Taken in June, little feeling, sold the day before yesterday. The reviews were actually controversial, but I hoped they were exaggerated, instead they were truthful. At 200 mm you have to close to F/11 to recover a bit of sharpness, but beyond there is no hope, so at 300 mm I used it with satisfaction only for video. For me it's an OB with little sense, because there are probably better ones staying within 200 mm.
Cons:A little dark in low light. Needs f 8 to sharpen over 270 mm
Opinion:Overall positive opinion, very clear and precise in good light conditions. Fast focus with em1 mk2, great with the small dot. It is so light and unwieldy that you take it with you even in outings not properly dedicated to birdlife. Taken to approach the naturalistic photo on the stakeout, it did not disappoint me at all, indeed it ignited the desire to try this specialty. Used has a very attractive price.
Pros:Only the weight, for the rest is better the 70-300 and F. 4.0-5.6 which is brighter and more incisive, even if you need to mount an adapter ring for Micro 4/3.
Cons:brightness, image quality acceptable only between F. 8 and F. 11 (but expires over 220/250 mm.!), focusing problems in low light conditions (obviable with manual focus, but is annoying), lens hood to buy apart.
Opinion:Nothing exceptional except the compactness and lightness. It is a dark tele zoom and not very easy to handle in low light conditions; The focus becomes critical in these conditions and you have to opt for manual focus. The quality of the images is lower than that of the "brother" 70-300 and that is definitely brighter and better performing (although heavier and bulky) and that, moreover, does not cause the same problems of focusing with low light on micro 4/3 despite The adapter. Better take it used.
Opinion:Bought used at €350, it allows you with a content outlay to get to 600mm eq. I took it for shots of fauna in the mountains and on holiday, which otherwise I could not do. The quality is good (good up to about 250mm, then you need to close one stop). It is exceptionally light and compact to have such an excursion and very convenient to have always with you. A little dark at the maximum focal, but in line with the cost. In good light returns phenomenal shots, which also in sharpness are fine (the more the subject is far less will be sharp, as with all Supertele). It is not immediate to use, but with a bit of practice the results are really good.
