Tokina 300mm 666
The Tokina 300mm F/6.3 Compact Super Telephoto Lens for Micro 4/3rds Mount is the latest model to be added to the acclaimed Tokina range.

The 300mm focal length of the lens gives an effective 600mm of zoom (in 35mm terms) when placed on a mirrorless camera body making it a super-telephoto lens. It has all metal lens barrels and very high quality glass optics to yield the best optical performance. The lens has a fixed f/6.3 aperture and is ideal for shooting wildlife and general outdoor/nature photography.

The telephoto mirror lens is designed specifically for mirrorless compact cameras using the micro 4/3rds mount. It comes with a wide grip area on the manual focusing ring and smooth movement to assist in focusing.

Available to UK photographers in early September 2012, the ultra-compact lens will have an RRP of £339.00 (excluding VAT).

For more information on Kenro's range of products go to the Kenro website.

    The problem that immediately struck me with that "nice wide grip" is how do you get a firm hold on the lens without fouling the auto-focus, which let's face it, all of us do most of the time?

    What struck me, knowing the diameter of a MFT mount was how small this thing looks for a 300mm. Clever idea to go back to mirror lens optics to achieve that. If it's as small & light as it seems it may be, that could well make up for the f6.3 max aperture.

    Fixed aperture mirror lens? Sounds like a piece of tat marketed as a prime from the looks of the price - which is not much less than Panasonic's 100-300 zoom (which has OIS - fairly handy at that focal length). It's not as if the latter is what you'd call big and bulky, either.

    Unless this thing performs like no other mirror lens ever built, I can't really see who's going to buy this.

    Its half the weight and size of the Pany 1-300, and focuses as close as 80cm opposed to the Panys 1.5M, and at the long end only very slightly slower @ f6.3.

    This lens will be handy, its only very slightly bigger than my sigma 19mm Smile

    Strikes me as an imaginative addition to the ever growing arsenal of M3/4 lenses.

    Tat? A 4 degree angle of view lens not much more than 2 inches long? Who will buy it? People who want a tiny 600mm equivalent lens.

    I said it was half the size of the Pany 1-300, its really a lot smaller than that, more like 1/3 of the size of the pany fully extended.

    A 600mm lens you can fit into a baggy trouser pocket can`t be bad Smile

    Not until we are into the 3rd paragraph of the announcement does it mention that its a mirror lens.

    Whilst I can appreciate the ergonomics of it, I would be interested to know if there is a mirror lens that delivers anything like reasonable IQ, even when compared to the brigde superzooms of which Olympus today announced a 22.4 to 896MM equivalent zoom, at less cost

    Every blog question asked about a mirror lens/ quality therof usually results in only negative responses and 339 is a shed load of money for this type of lens

    I used to have a 500mm Nikkor mirror lens which was pretty good, so they can be ok.
