Product Highlights

    With the evolution of technology comes smaller, lighter, faster devices, and the M.Zuiko ED 300mm f4.0 IS PRO is boldly following in the footsteps of this grand tradition. At only one–third the size and weight of its larger, heavier, 600mm predecessors, the M.Zuiko ED is your solution for getting up close, from far away. In–lens Synchronized Image Stabilization works in conjunction with the 5–axis image stabilization found in OM–D cameras, delivering telephoto images that are detailed and crisp, even without a tripod. Color bleed, ghosting and other chromatic aberrations are a worry of the past because the M.Zuiko 300mm offers the highest resolution of any Olympus model, with cutting–edge internal lens architecture and new Z Coating Nano lens coating technology. Achieve brilliant, high magnification macros in small quarters with a minimum focusing distance of 4.5 feet and a maximum magnification of 0.48x (35mm equivalent). Combine the OM–Ds Silent Mode (electronic shutter) with the Movie & Still compatibility mechanism of the ED 300 to achieve completely silent photography – useful around skittish natural subjects, or indoor events that require complete silence. Equipped with a manual focus Clutch, quickly and easily swap between manual and auto focus functions. Hermetical sealing in 17 locations means you can tackle harsh weather and rugged environments with ease – especially when the M.Zuiko ED 300mm is paired with weather sealed OM–D camera bodies. Come rain, come shine, come snow, come sleet, the show must go on.

    Olympus M.Zuiko ED 300mm f/4 PRO Telephoto Lens

    With excellent optical performance packed in a compact, lightweight, dustproof, splashproof, and freezeproof construction, this M.Zuiko PRO super–telephoto lens lets you shoot outstanding–quality images even in the harshest environments. This is the first Olympus interchangeable lens to be equipped with in–lens IS (image stabilisation). 5–axis Sync IS, a collaboration of in–lens IS and in–body 5–axis IS, achieves the world's most powerful image stabilisation equivalent to 6 shutter speed steps. With excellent mobility, these features make previously difficult hand–held super–telephoto shooting possible. When combined with the MC–14 1.4x Teleconverter, the lens can be used as an 840mm super–telephoto lens.

    The World's Most Powerful Image Stabilisation

    This is the first Olympus interchangeable lens to be equipped with in–lens IS. Combining in–lens IS and in–body 5–axis IS, 5–axis Sync IS achieves the world's most powerful image stabilisation, equivalent to 6 shutter speed steps. This makes previously difficult hand–held super–telephoto shooting possible.

    Amazing Mobility With A Compact, Lightweight Design

    This is a compact, lightweight lens weighing only 1270 g with a length of 227 mm, featuring dustproof, splashproof and freezeproof construction. Its excellent mobility and powerful image stabilisation makes it useful in a variety of fields without needing a tripod.

    Dustproof And Splashproof

    The hermetic sealing in 17 locations powerfully protects against ingress of dust and water droplets for excellent dustproof and splashproof performance.

    The Highest Resolution In Olympus History

    Olympus's best–ever resolution is achieved by including 3 Super ED (extra–low dispersion) lenses, an HR (high–refractive) lens and an E–HR (Extra–High Refractive) lens for correcting colour bleeding and aberrations that tend to occur when using telephoto lenses.

    New Lens Coating: Z Coating Nano

    New coating technology, Z Coating Nano, significantly reduces ghosts and flares for sharp, clear image quality. By adding a layer of nano–sized particles with a layer of air in the center to the surface of the lens, the coating achieves a refractive index similar to that of air for reduced surface reflections.

    High–speed, High–precision Autofocus

    High–precision, thin lens fabrication technology makes the focus lens element lightweight. This contributes to the high–speed, high–precision lens drive and the overall small package. When combined with the OM–D E–M1, high–speed AF of 400 ms or less is possible.

    Telemacro Shooting With A Maximum Image Magnification of 0.48x

    Telemacro performance with a closest focusing distance of 1.4 m (1.15 m from the end of the lens) and a maximum image magnification of 0.48x is now possible. These features open up a new world of telemacro shooting with hand–held and free angle possibilities.

    Hand–Held 840mm Super–Telephoto Shooting

    When combined with the 1.4x teleconverter MC–14, 840mm hand–held super–telephoto photography is possible.

    Premium, Fine Quality Expected Of The PRO Lens Series

    The sophisticated design features a MF (manual focus) clutch mechanism for instantly switching shooting styles, and switches on the lens barrel for changing settings without changing your grip.

    A New World Made Possible With The Super–Telephoto Lens & Silent Shutter

    Combining the silent shooting mode with this super–telephoto lens let you shoot silently in environments where it is difficult to approach the subject, such as concerts, etc.
