Our take on the Olympus 75-300mm f/4.8-6.7 Lens

by Woody Sherman

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.
