Product Features in Detail
United to take away the shake
The in-lens stabilization on the M.Zuiko 300mm f4.0 IS PRO lens works with the 5-Axis Image Stabilization in OM-D cameras to give 6 shutter steps of performance. This results to crisp and clear images even without a tripod. The synchronized image stabilization also makes the fastest autofocus among 600mm equivalent DSLR lenses which enables you to explore various camera angles.
Let's see what the lens is made of
Its 17 elements in 10 groups composition features three Super ED lenses, 3 HR lenses, and 1 E-HR lens to reduce common super-telephoto lens issues such as bleeding and chromatic aberration. Aside from this, the Zero Coating Nano helps deliver sharp images by reducing reflections within the lens that can cause flares and ghosting.
Weather, do not even bother
The M.Zuiko 300mm f4.0 IS PRO can withstand harsh weather elements like dust and rain due to its hermetical sealing in 17 locations. With the OM-D cameras on tow, expect all-around protection for your set-up.
Silent but stunningly deadly
Enjoy quiet autofocus operations with the Movie & Still Compatible mechanism. If you are in a setting that requires silence like an indoor concert, you can take photos continually without the sound of the motor engaging in autofocus.
Quick on-lens controls
The Manual Focus Clutch mechanism allows the quick switch from auto to manual focus. Meanwhile, the side of the lens barrel has a Focus Limit switch, an IS On/Off switch, and an L-Fn button which can be triggered to any of the 27 available functions.
