Effortless Super-Telephoto Shooting
Take on some of the greatest shooting challenges with incredible ease and freedom. Offering a fixed 600mm super-telephoto focal length, the Olympus 300mm f4 PRO lens brings distant, hard-to-capture subjects—from sports and wildlife to full moons and live music—amazingly close. However, at just a fraction of the size and weight of a standard 600mm lens, it’s also outstandingly portable and easy to handhold. Hermetically sealed for dustproof, splashproof and freezeproof performance, the PRO Olympus 300mm lens is built to travel almost anywhere.
0.48x Telemacro Shooting
With excellent telemacro capabilities, the Olympus 300mm f4 PRO lens is just as impressive when it comes to close-up shooting. Capture insects, flowers and other small details as closely as 1.15m from the front of the lens, at up to 0.48x magnification.
Outstandingly Powerful Image Stabilisation
With this Olympus 300mm lens, you can leave the tripod behind. In-lens image stabilisation (IS) counteracts hand shake blur by the equivalent of 4 shutter speed steps, helping you to get tack-sharp results when shooting handheld. When using this lens on an Olympus camera with in-body IS, you’ll get even more powerful stabilisation—an outstanding 6 shutter speed steps—through 5-axis Sync IS.
Ultra-High Image Quality
The Olympus 300mm f4 PRO lens delivers Olympus’ highest resolution to date, capturing each subject with brilliant colour and detail. Its design incorporates Super ED (extra-low dispersion), HR (high refractive) and E-HR (extra-high refractive) lens elements to control colour fringing and other aberrations common to telephoto lenses. The result? Stunning edge-to-edge definition, even at f4. Olympus’ Z Coating Nano lens coating cuts ghosting and flare, ensuring clear, vivid images even in backlit scenes.
Fast, High-Precision Focusing and Control
The Olympus 300mm f4 PRO lens’ design technologies help provide not only less weight but also a remarkably fast, accurate lens drive. Whether photographing your favourite team or a rare bird in flight, you’ll capture split-second action with superb speed, precision and silence. An innovative MF (manual focus) clutch mechanism allows you to switch from AF to MF focus in an instant, while controls placed strategically on the lens barrel let you adjust your settings without altering your grip. Refine your focusing range and speed via the focus limit switch, turn image stabilisation on or off via the IS switch, or operate one of many different functions using the customisable L-Fn button.
