Small, lightweight, and amazingly portable for a lens of its magnification power, this Olympus 75-300mm lens is the perfect lens to have in your kit bag when you're shooting that once-in-a-lifetime event and you're stuck halfway up a hill and 200 yards away. Okay, that's really specific and not all that common, but how about these scenarios: shooting sports outdoors from the sidelines; documenting wildlife in its natural habitat; getting that close-up architectural detail at Stonehenge, the Acropolis, or the Corn Palace from the other side of the venue — or your son, caught unaware from a distance, taking it all in.
Now you see just how often this lens might come in handy. With Olympus's acclaimed optics and build quality, this lens will keep on delivering sharp, saturated, clear pictures through several generations of camera ownership, so consider it a long-term investment in your creative potential. With an effective focal length of 150-600mm on your Olympus interchangeable lens camera, you'll have a wide range of framing options available as you increase your ability to reach across space.
