Features

This large-aperture telephoto zoom lens (fixed F stop type), provides f/2.0 aperture through the entire zoom range. It is equivalent to 70-200mm on a 35mm camera, and covers from medium-telephoto range of natural angles to telephoto area with a compressed perspective effect. Its fast shutter-speeds and beautifully soft out-of-focus image behind the main subject are an ideal for portrait, theatrical and sports shooting under the low-light. Luxurious optical glass elements, such as, four ED lenses and one super ED lens are used to give the highest image quality with optimal resolution and contrast.

Reviews
Excellent Glass!, November 20, 2009

By Anthony P. Lauro (Easton, PA)

I use this to photography weddings but have used it for hockey and nightime events.

This IS THE lens to get on the 4/3rds system. It is worth every penny. I usually have the lens almost wide open and with the E3 @ 1250 iso get very little noise if any. Some may want to use a monopod, but I handhold this lens.

When buying a lens, ask if you what your return on investment will be. I knew I would make the money back I spent on this lens from its advantages. Now I rented the 90-250mm, but that is something I wouldn't buy because it would be a more specific use at a much higher price.
