- The lens was designed to fit the Micro Four Thirds mount, and accordingly offers the user a telephoto range of focal lengths, the equivalent of 150mm to 600mm.
- This lens isn’t a “constant” aperture lens, in that as you increase the focal length, the maximum aperture size decreases, however the minimum aperture remains at f/22.
- The 75-300mm ƒ/4.8-6.7 II offers excellent results in the wider end of its focal length spectrum.
- Even used wide open at 75mm and ƒ/4.8, the lens produces tack-sharp images from corner to corner (this is also true at 100mm and ƒ/5.1).
- Stopping down at either of these focal lengths doesn’t produce any tangible increase in sharpness.
- The Olympus 75-300mm ƒ/4.8-6.7 M.Zuiko is very fast to autofocus, taking less than a second to go through its entire focusing range.
- The lens adopts the new MSC (Movie & Still Compatible) design, making it ideal for use in both still and video applications.
- The front element does not rotate when focusing, making life that much easier for polarizer users.
- The lens isn’t a dedicated macro lens, producing just 0.18x magnification.
- The minimum close-focusing distance is just under three feet (90 cm). Given that the lens uses the same filter size and bayonet mount as the 40-150mm M.Zuiko, we see no reason why the the Macro Lens Converter (MCON-58) would not work on this lens as well.
- Using this adapter reduces the minimum close-focusing range to just 24cm (around 9 inches) on certain lenses (possibly including this one, but Olympus’ press information doesn’t make it clear); there doesn’t seem to be any information at the time of writing concerning what magnification is offered by the adapter.
