The Olympus M.Zuiko ED 300mm f/4 IS PRO lens is designed with professional sports and wildlife photographers in mind. Its class-leading image stabilisation (IS) performance delivers unparalleled shooting versatility and impressive detail photos and video.
Unparalleled Image Stabilisation
When paired with a compatible camera body such as the E-M1 or E-M5II, the stabilisation system delivers a class leading 6-stop advantage to ensure maximum detail and clarity. Compatible cameras allow Sync IS functionality, combining the 5-axis image stabilisation found on selected Olympus camera bodies with the built-in lens image stabilisation system to offer unparalleled vibration compensation.
Powerful 600mm Focal Range (35mm equiv.)
