Girl-from-300mm-F2.8When I was looking for those excellent lenses I was thinking that its users never change Olympus SLR to Canon’s or Nikon’s. But it’s interchangeable lens series for professionals. In my opinion Olympus SLRs such as E410, E510 or previous models (excepting old E1) are not pro cameras. And developed for more advanced optical, precision technology and exquisite picture quality these lenses are much more expensive than SLR cameras. From other side I remember what pleasure I had while shooting with Sony’s 300mm F2.8 for $5999. In any case these devices are worthy of special attention. For more look through Olympus Standard ZUIKO DIGITAL lenses: 35mm Macro up to 70-300mm Tele and Olympus ZUIKO High Grade lenses: from 8mm F3.5 Fisheye to 50-200mm F2.8-3.5 Tele.
