ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 300mm F2.8 (Built to Order)

Outstanding F2.8 large-aperture super-telephoto lens. It is equivalent to 600 mm on a 35mm camera. You can accurately get the expression into a distant subject we would normally miss altogether, and feel the distinct super-telephoto effect. This overwhelming super-telephoto lens invites you to another image world. Perfect lens for wildlife and field sports photography.
Luxurious three ED lenses are used to provide the highest image quality with optimal resolution and contrast.

* Drop in PL filter, ND4, ND8 and Clear filter included.
