The M.Zuiko 300mm f4.0 IS PRO's lavish design features 3 Super ED lenses, 3 HR lenses and 1 E-HR lens to dramatically reduce the occurrence of color bleeding and chromatic aberrations that tend to occur on super-telephoto lenses. The addition of a new coating technology, Z Coating Nano, significantly reduces ghosts and flares and provides sharp, clear image quality.

The M.Zuiko 300mm f4.0 IS PRO lens is right at home in harsh environments like dust and rain thanks to hermetical sealing in 17 locations. Combined with weather sealed OM-D* camera bodies, you'll never have to worry about weather or environmental conditions wherever your photographic pursuits take you. And because this lens is so compact, you can easily fit it in your carry-on luggage to ensure your gear arrives when you do and not tire out if you're using it all day long!

With a minimum focusing distance of just 4.5 feet (1.4m) and a maximum magnification of 0.48x (35mm equivalent), this super telephoto lens is equally adept in close quarters, delivering stunning, high magnification macros. With the addition of the MC-14 1.4x Digital Teleconverter, the maximum magnification jumps to 0.67x, while maintaining the same minimum focus distance.

The inclusion of the Movie & Still Compatible (MSC) mechanism makes AF operations completely silent. In combination with the OM-D's Silent Mode (electronic shutter), you can photograph skiddish nature subjects as well as indoor events that require complete silence like musical performances. The size and weight of the OM-D system and these silent features open up a whole new world of shooting possibilities!

The M.Zuiko 300mm f4.0 IS PRO is equipped with a Manual Focus Clutch mechanism which makes switching from auto to manual focus extremely quick. The side of the lens barrel also features a Focus Limit switch (4m to infinity, full range, and 1.4 to 4m) as well as an IS On/Off switch and L-Fn button which can be programmed to perform one of 27 different functions. A built-in, retractable lens hood offers additional protection from stray light and the removable tripod base plate features a quick shoe compatible rail.
