The high end Olympus 300mm f/4 IS PRO gets reviewed and tested. Darren Miles give the top tier micro 4/3 lens a studio speed test and then takes it outdoor for some soccer shots.
The Olympus 300mm f/4 lens has a few controls on the side: one of these is the image stabilization and the other main one that worked well as a focus limiter.
This Olympus 300mm f/4 is designed and built to a very high standard. It’s weather sealed, has metal on the outside, and feels solid in hand. It’s one of the best made Olympus lenses I’ve seen or tested on the field.
