  • Olympus 75-300mm f/4.8-6.7 II ED M.Zuiko Digital

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    light weight, reasonably sharp-I get photos that are sharper than I got with nikon D800 + nikon 300mm F2.8

    Over all rated 9- good value for the money
    Construction 9. It is plastic, no lens hood
    Optically 9. Sharp, lens does not creep, i.e. feather detail shows clearly - i.e. the feather components, color rendition is accurate, have not shot to induce flare. No noticeable barrel or pin cushion or chromatic aberration noted subjectively but suspect if bench tested it may?. I am getting pictures I was never able to get with my nikon gear - that I have traded in for the olympus system.--no regrets
