Pros: Lightning fast autofocus. Sharp! Very well built.

Cons: Care must be taken with busy backgrounds as the bokeh is not all that nice, the price you pay for the incredible sharpness of this lens.

Opinion: After over two years of using a Canon 400/5.6 and a Metabones Smart Adapter on my Olympus E-M1 (I and II), I finally broke down and bought this lens. I was always quite happy with the image quality of the Canon, but at 73 I was getting tired of the relatively slow (but VERY accurate) AF (phase detect only) and the difficulties I was having with the Mark II with pin point focus in busy situations, like small birds in the tree branches. The 300/4 Pro is brilliant, both in build and image quality. The combined IS on the Mark II is amazing. The AF is amazing. The resolution is amazing.... in fact, I get sharper images with less CA/fringing at 420mm with the MC-14 attached than I did with the Canon at 400mm. The only slight drawback is the bokeh which tends to be a little busy, but it is manageable and well worth the gains in sharpness. In a word, I LOVE it!

Pros: Optical quality at the level of the best fixed; build quality; minimum distance of MAF which makes it almost a Macro; tropicalization; collapsible ring passing to MF; presence of a Function button (Fn) on the body; multiplied by 1.4 to maintain a good image quality. Collar supplied with arca swiss style. Weight.

Cons: nothing

Opinion: Great Lense.................................................. I am coming from CANON full frame and i'm very glad to have switched to micro 4/3. With this lense i have a 600 mm F4 with 1270 g. and a very very beautiful image quality. The stabilisation is incredible. With hands with 1/60 sec it's great. The image quality with TC1.4x is perfect.

Pros: Sharpness, weight, build quality.. Exceptional for semi-static birdlife in all light conditions. It corresponds to a 600mm for FF, with F8 depth of field, 840mm with the 1.4x TC and 1200mm with the 2x TC

Cons: Since the accuracy of the continuous autofocus drops significantly at 2x, it may be too short for birds of prey flying far away. No problem for semi-static ones. When the light fades (and 99% of enthusiasts are already on the couch) the autofocus of micro 4/3 cameras abandons you... it goes by manual focus....

Opinion: It is an amazing lens for weight and performance, super sharp from the center to the edges already at full aperture, it shows no drops with the TC 1.4x and in terms of sharpness it remains excellent even with the 2x (with the 2x it becomes a 1200mm, actually a 600mm f8 sharper than the Sony 200-600 at 600mm from the center to the edges), However, it loses a lot of effectiveness in continuous autofocus in sports and birdlife. It is able to pay for all zooms per FF, except for dynamic photography over long distances (birds of prey in flight) where the 45/60 mpx of the FF make the difference. And it can also give a hard time to the super tele F4 for FF mounted on traditional 24mpx sensors ... compared to which, however, it pays a lot in terms of blur. The stabilization is at the highest levels, both smooth and with the TCs you can go down at very slow times .. 1/10, 1/15 without problems... The autofocus is fast and accurate when smooth, it loses a little bit in very dynamic situations with the 1.4x TC, but remains fully usable, while it becomes almost unusable with the 2x TC (it remains fast and responsive but the keeper rate is very low). It is the biggest and heaviest, after 150-400, yet removed the metal ring it is light and usable / transportable freehand all day up and down the mountains. and I'll tell you that I can't stand excessive weights anymore !! Many of those who ignore the micro 4/3 system laugh and don't understand how a 300 F4 can cost so much and weigh so much, arguing that a normal 300 F4 for FF does the same things costing less and weighing less (so we talk about SLR stuff, since the only current 300 f4 for mirrorless cameras are the Sony 300 2.8 closed at f4 (7k) and the canon 100-300 2.8 closed at f4 (13k). Well... buy a 300 f4 for SLRs and compare it with the Olympus 300 Pro. and you'll see the difference..

Pros: Quality.... Image... focus....

Cons: Lens hood... weight... don't have it....

Opinion: Amazing lens.... Give spectacular images.... For me a ... if not the most beautiful Zuiko lens.... Maybe after the new 150-400 f4.5....but to try ... So much substance... Blurred a bit strong .... hood comfortable but delicate .... I must say that I immediately fell in love with this lens Do not try it ...... otherwise....

Pros: Crazy quality (even at TA), tropicalized, colors, AF, programmable function key, bracket included in the price

Cons: big and heavy to be an M4/3 (it's exactly as big as a 300mm f/4 from FF), really fragile hood closure system

Opinion: What can I say? It is definitely not an "easy" lens, which serves in every kit, but, in its category, it does crazy things. Coupled with "generous" camera bodies (E-M1X or E-M1 with battery grip) in terms of ergonomics it seems to have a flagship FF with 600mm of focal length, but .... less than half the size! Beautiful colors (like the other Olympus PRO lenses, on the other hand), lightning-fast AF (on performing bodies, of course), robust, solid, tropicalized, with a minimum distance of MAF that makes it practically a macro (0.34x reproduction ratio, which with the crop factor of the m4 / 3 become 0.65x: practically for "large" subjects such as butterflies, dragonflies, grasshoppers, reptiles, it replaces a macro lens without regrets!). What can I say: in terms of performance it is really a perfect lens. We come to the few cons: the dimensions are not small to be an m4/3 lens (as mentioned, it is exactly as large as a 300mm f / 4 from FF), but they are not such as to strain excessively (I am quite robust, but I tried to do several km with backpack and E-M1 III + BG + 300mm around the neck and I had no problems). It may seem like a fool, but the worst flaw of this lens is.... the hood! The closing method is really morons (three plastic teeth miiiiinuuuuscooooliiiiii, which are peeled only to look at them badly): but I say, you have at home the system of the hood of the 40-150mm f / 2.8 (a brainy thread if you do not know it, but then very comfortable and above all very stable): but you can not make one the same?! Apart from that, an amazing lens at a human price (in this era of 24-70mm at 2500€)
