Re: 70-300mm deal

For that price you'll find nothing better. Go for it. Such a versatile lens!

nice for tele

E620/ZD 70-300mm Sailing the Oosterschelde (Netherlands)

nice for close ups

E620/ZD 70-300mm Bumblebee

E620/ZD 70-300mm  Spider

it even can blur the background (F 4.7 , @169mm)


Hello fellow 4/3rders:

I know about the pros/cons of the 70-300m, esp. as compared to the 50-200mm. I don't have either lens. But right now, Olympus has a rebate on the 70-300mm, so you can scoop up a new one for $299!

I'd like to hear from any 70-300 owners... is it worth it to get this lens at this price? Is it better to just wait and try to get the 50-200 used when it gets even cheaper?
