Lens Description

The Olympus Zuiko 70-300mm F/4-5.6 ED is a short telephoto to super telephoto zoom designed for cameras with a Four-Thirds (2X) sensor. This variable-aperture zoom covers a 70mm to 300mm focal-range. It provides the same field of view as a 140-600mm lens on a Full-Frame camera.

This zoom can focus down to 96cm from the imaging plane which gives it a maximum magnification of 0.5X. The lens supports autofocus and features a switch to disengage AF for focusing manually. A built-in focus motor is used to set the focus-distance. It allowed Olympus to optimize the motor precisely for this lens in order to maximize performance.

This lens is only available for Four-Thirds. Follow this link for all current compatible digital cameras: Four-Thirds mount cameras.
