About this deal

As I’ve said many times before though, continuous autofocus remains an Achilles’ Heel for Olympus and I know many people will be considering this lens for sports or action photography. ED, Olympus employed an iris diaphragm with 9 rounded blades, which has resulted in a pretty decent, albeit not outstanding, bokeh for a zoom lens - at least in our opinion.

Sensor design including on chip post processing and lens transmission (the only zoom lens that has a transmission close to the actual f stop 2. Other attributes: The Olympus cameras perform distortion and aberration corrections in JPEGs, and some raw converters do, as well, so it’s getting a little more difficult to talk about such issues for a lens than it used to. This is combined with Olympus’s ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating to effectively remove ghosting and flare.I welcome others with this lens + TC to add to my comments and let me know if that's what they have experienced as well.

I hear it said time and time again that Micro 4/3 is not for professionals because there is ‘too much depth of field’ at a given aperture and ‘too much noise’ compared to a modern full frame system. I was shooting using two cameras, my Olympus OMD EM10 and my EM1 since these are the bodies I use the most in my work. With equivalent coverage of 80-300mm, it's ideal for portraiture and street photography, along with nearby sports and wildlife.I can apply this principle to pretty much every shot I take, having spent my full frame life shooting location portraits and wildlife on a telephoto lens using fast zooms at apertures of around f4 to f8. aperture is maintained throughout the focal range, a very useful feature and not just for shooting in low light. All Olympus Micro Four Thirds bodies employ built-in stabilisation with the most sophisticated five-axis system employed on the OMD EM1.
