The M.Zuiko 300mm f4.0 IS PRO (600mm equivalent) is light and compact enough to take on even the most strenuous expeditions, and it weighs one-third as much as typical 600mm DSLR lenses. The first-of-its-kind 5-Axis Sync IS technology combines in-body and in-lens stabilization to produce crisp, detailed images and six compensation steps at each shutter speed.
Preparing for the Long Road
The M.Zuiko 300mm f4.0 IS PRO lens is right at home in harsh environments like dust and rain thanks to hermetic sealing in 17 locations. Combined with weather sealed OM-D camera bodies, you'll never have to worry about weather or environmental conditions wherever your photographic pursuits take you. And because this lens is so compact, you can easily fit it in your carry-on luggage to ensure your gear arrives when you do and not tire out if you're using it all day long!
Synchronized Image Stabilization
The in-focal point adjustment on the M.Zuiko 300mm f4.0 IS Genius focal point works as one with the 5-Hub Picture Adjustment in OM-D cameras* to convey a surprising 6 shade speed steps of remuneration, guaranteeing fresh, clear fax pictures, even off mount. Take shots of nature from above and low-to-the-ground macros, among other unusual perspectives. Sync IS also makes it possible to have the fastest and most precise AF in its class, which works with 600mm DSLR lenses.
The extravagant design of the M.Zuiko 300mm f4.0 IS PRO includes three Super ED lenses, three HR lenses, and one E-HR lens to significantly reduce color bleeding and chromatic aberrations that are common with super-telephoto lenses. The inclusion of a brand-new coating technology known as Z Coating Nano results in a significant reduction in flares and ghosts as well as sharp, clear image quality.
Big Shots of Small Subjects
This super telephoto lens is equally adept at close quarters, producing stunning high magnification macro shots with a minimum focusing distance of just 4.5 feet (1.4 meters). It also has a maximum magnification of 0.48x (equivalent to 35 millimeters). The minimum focus distance remains the same, but the maximum magnification increases to 0.67x when the MC-14 1.4x Teleconverter is added.
Shah, Amazing Photography in Progress
AF operations are completely silent due to the inclusion of the Movie Still Compatible (MSC) mechanism. You can use the electronic shutter of the OM-D's Silent Mode to take pictures of skittish nature subjects as well as silent indoor events like musical performances. The OM-D system's small size, light weight, and silent features make it possible to shoot in entirely new ways!
Maximum Control Options
The M.Zuiko 300mm f4.0 IS PRO's Manual Focus Clutch mechanism makes it extremely quick to switch from auto to manual focus. A Focus Limit switch (4m to infinity, full range, and 1.4m to 4m) and an IS On/Off switch and L-Fn button, each of which can be programmed to perform one of 27 functions, are located on the side of the lens barrel. The removable tripod base plate has a rail that is compatible with quick shoes and comes with a built-in, retractable lens hood that provides additional shielding against unwanted light.
