Quick Overview

Telephoto PRO Lens


Hand-held shooting with a 600mm[1] super-telephoto lens. Superb mobility with the world's most powerful, 5-axis Sync IS.

With excellent optical performance packed in a compact, lightweight, dustproof, splashproof, and freezeproof construction, this M.Zuiko PRO super-telephoto lens lets you shoot outstanding-quality images even in the harshest environments. This is the first Olympus interchangeable lens to be equipped with in-lens IS (image stabilisation). 5-axis Sync IS[3], a collaboration of in-lens IS and in-body 5-axis IS, achieves the world's most powerful[2] image stabilisation equivalent to 6 shutter speed steps. With excellent mobility, these features make previously difficult hand-held super-telephoto shooting possible. When combined with the MC-14 1.4x Teleconverter, the lens can be used as an 840mm[1] super-telephoto lens.


Amazing mobility with a compact, lightweight design

OM-D E-M1+ M.Zuiko Digital ED 300mm f/4.0 IS PRO

This is a compact, lightweight lens weighing only 1270 g with a length of 227 mm, featuring dustproof, splashproof and freezeproof construction. Its excellent mobility and powerful image stabilisation makes it useful in a variety of fields without needing a tripod.

Dustproof and splashproof

Hermetic sealing in 17 locations

The hermetic sealing in 17 locations powerfully protects against ingress of dust and water droplets for excellent dustproof and splashproof performance.

The highest resolution in Olympus history

MTF chart

Olympus's best-ever resolution is achieved by including 3 Super ED (extra-low dispersion) lenses, an HR (high-refractive) lens and an E-HR (Extra-High Refractive) lens for correcting colour bleeding and aberrations that tend to occur when using telephoto lenses.

  • When more precise resolution is required, Anti-Shock mode or Silent mode is recommended.

New lens coating: Z Coating Nano

  1. Air layer
  2. Nanoparticles
  3. Incident light
  4. Reflected light
  5. Vapour deposit film
  6. Lens

New coating technology, Z Coating Nano, significantly reduces ghosts and flares for sharp, clear image quality. By adding a layer of nano-sized particles with a layer of air in the center to the surface of the lens, the coating achieves a refractive index similar to that of air for reduced surface reflections.

High-speed, high-precision autofocus

High-precision, thin lens fabrication technology makes the focus lens element lightweight. This contributes to the high-speed, high-precision lens drive and the overall small package. When combined with the OM-D E-M1, high-speed AF of 400 ms or less is possible.

  • According to Olympus testing conditions

Telemacro shooting with a maximum image magnification of 0.48x

Telemacro performance with a closest focusing distance of 1.4 m (1.15 m from the end of the lens) and a maximum image magnification of 0.48x[1] is now possible.  These features open up a new world of telemacro shooting with hand-held and free angle possibilities.

Hand-held 840mm super-telephoto shooting

When combined with the 1.4x teleconverter MC-14, 840mm[1] hand-held super-telephoto photography is possible.

Premium, fine quality expected of the PRO lens series

The sophisticated design features a MF (manual focus) clutch mechanism for instantly switching shooting styles, and switches on the lens barrel for changing settings without changing your grip.
  • 1: MF clutch mechanism: pull the focusing ring toward you to switch to a preset focal position. This makes it possible to instantly switch from AF shooting to prefocus shooting.
    2: Lens barrel switch: a focus limit switch (all range, near/far distance), IS switch (ON/OFF), and L-Fn (for registering all functions) button are located on the side of the lens barrel. These controls make it possible to change settings with a single action.

A new world made possible with the super-telephoto lens and silent shutter

Combining the silent shooting mode with this super-telephoto lens let you shoot silently in environments where it is difficult to approach the subject, such as concerts, etc.
