Get Olympus 300mm f/4 at B&H Photo.
I’ve been enjoying the Olympus 300mm f/4 on the Olympus E-M1. It is a very fine lens and I’ll be reviewing it in Guide to Mirrorless.
The 300mm Micro Four Thirds focal length is equivalent to 600mm in a full frame field of view, so it has a lot of reach in a relatively small and very manageable package. Using it has left me no doubt that this would be the 600mm (equiv) lens of choice were I to shoot at that range—anything in full frame is just so huge and such a hassle.
This cactus was perched 60 feet up a steep canyon cliff. The 300/4 is great fun to pick out small areas of interest. I really enjoy using it that way.
Bokeh of the Olympus 300/4 is smooth and creamy with exceptional color correction—truly outstanding.
Up late from the night before, this group arrived in a blaze of headlights and cloud of dust in Twenty Mule Team Canyon, rousing me. So I rose at 5:15 AM and did some shooting.
