The Olympus 100-400mm f5-6.3 lens is a very capable lens for nature, sports, or any other subjects you may want to photograph at a distance. It may not be a “pro” lens, but it has a lot of features pros will love. It is a splash resistant lens that focuses very close, not to mention you can use it with Olympus’s excellent teleconverters. Check out my video reviews for my full take on this great new addition to the Olympus lens lineup.

    I use mainly the Panasonic Leica 50mm – 200mm on my G9. I recently bought the Panasonic Leica 100mm – 400mm. I have found it is real learning curve with the 100-400, The IS seems weaker than the 50-200, the quality of light plays a huge part in the image sharpness. I find overcast lower light levels gives a softer edge to the subject, whereas the 50-200 is 9/10 always tack sharp what ever the light. Having bought the G9, I wish Olympus, Panasonic, and Leica would collaborate and enable transferable Lenses to include full IS . This would open up a whole range of opportunities without re-inventing the wheel.
    Thanks for you review.. As always, it seems whenever you plump for a particular system, you get leap-frogged. With the competition

      Thanks for your comment, Frank! The longer I use the Olympus system, the more I’m convinced that the DFD AF in the Lumix system just can’t keep up with the PDAF in the Olympus cameras. I get so many more keepers it’s amazing.
