Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 300mm f4 IS PRO lens

I bought this lens in July from HDEW, it has been in a protective camo coat most of the time since then.
I am selling somewhat reluctantly because I have made the decision to continue with my Canon gear for wildlife, I will still be using my Olympus m4/3 gear for everything else.



I am asking 1875 to include Royal Mail Special Delivery insured, The price incudes the camo cover.
I will happily post photo samples taken with this lens if required.
Because this lens was bought from HDEW I give my personal undertaking to honour the HDEW 3 year warranty they give should any defects covered by warranty occur during the remainder of the warranty period.

Advertised elsewhere.

Withdrawn from sale.

Hi Mack, I hope your sale goes well.
I have read your previous frustrations with OLY for wildlife photography, can I ask have you tried the 300pro with the em1mk2? I am asking as I also come from and still have canon Gear for wildlife.
Kind regards mike.

Hi Mike

I've not been able to obtain a new E-M1ii body to test it and I don't know when they'd be available for rental.
Thanks for your comments.

Does that mean you got an EM1 mk2 to try it on?

I just knew someone would say that!
I bought a used one from Aperture about 3 minutes ago!
I now look forward to rigorously testing it compared to my Canon system equipment.
After having a whinge about my disappointment with the E-M1 Mki in BIF I decided to put my money where my mouth is.

I don't really understand why the lens sale produced zero interest across 3 forums, perhaps someone here can enlighten me, all I know is that every time I've looked at it sitting in the cabinet this last week I've felt a pang of guilt.

If others are in the same spot as me then it's the amount of money that it costs plus the weight of it that puts me off. I'd still love one though to try out. Same cost reason goes for the Mk2 you just got mind you your deal would have eased that one a bit. Still not enough for me though.

Phil,

It is rather heavy for a M4/3 lens but not unwieldy, I have only had mine for two weeks and not had chance to use it to any real degree yet. However Wednesday evening with a relatively clear sky and a full moon I had just enough time ( about 3 minutes, before taking my wife out ) to literally get a 'grab shot' . Em1 mk1 & 1.4 TC thus producing a 35mm equivalent FOV of an 840mm lens, given it was taken 'handheld' and with just a few minutes available I am rather pleased with the result. I look forward to having the time to use it in a more controlled manner.

Image cropped from original.

Kind regards, Simon

I'd say that's pretty phenomenal.

Hand-held????

Brilliant.
