Olympus 300mm f/4 Pro extended gallery: Taking a closer look at this popular lens, plus 1.4x TC images

Our full review of the highly acclaimed Olympus 300mm f/4 Pro lens has long since been completed and published, and for anyone who's yet to see our lab results, they're simply stellar across the board. Testing for image quality, image stabilization performance, build quality and additional factors all yielded results with flying colors, and a wholehearted seal of approval from our discerning lens review team.

But we only had a few days time with that sample in order to bring you real world gallery images! And that was in the winter, and we didn't have access to a 1.4x teleconverter at that point. We've therefore been relentlessly hounding our friends at Olympus for another sample, using you the reader as our excuse but knowing full well that we simply wanted to shoot some more with this awesome lens! They finally capitulated, and we're grateful to them because availability is quite scarce due to high demand for this product.
