About this deal

The lens is both dust- and moisture-resistant, an excellent feature given that this lens will predominantly be used by wildlife and sports photographers in all kinds of conditions. This meant that Derek sheltered in the woods so I decided to go for a nice long walk around and see what my fieldcraft could turn up. Good review Petr, I use the Panasonic on a MK3body for wildlife pics, this set up works well for me. Both of these are also distinguishable from each other by touch thanks to the ingenious use of different types of non-slip rubber coating.

With the focus mode on the OM-D E-M1X set to AFC, the lens tracked moving subjects well, although it takes some practice to keep them in the frame when using the 800mm focal length! I parked my gear for a few hours at the pelican enclosure, where there is also always plenty of standing and flying wild herons. Of course it couldn't be, that was just false hope, it's a PRO lens with a PRO spec and that kind of tech costs money.

Converter lock - the internal converter has a lock button to prevent it being engaged during transport.

At the 100mm end of the zoom range, the lens has a diagonal angle of view of 12°, equivalent to that of a 200mm lens in a 35mm system.Their 2x crop factor means that, to calculate the equivalent 35mm range of an attached optic, you multiply the focal length by 2x – which makes this latest Olympus lens a whopping 200-800mm.
