Rating: no ratingThe Tokina 300mm F/6.3 Compact Super Telephoto Lens for Micro 4/3rds Mount has all metal lens barrels and very high quality glass optics to yield the best optical performance. Beautifully built, 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.
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, allowing photographers to bring distant subjects into much closer detail. Despite its powerful focal length, the lens is incredibly compact to match the size of the compact cameras it is intended to be used with.
Available to UK photographers in early September 2012, the ultra-compact lens will have an RRP of £339.00 (excluding VAT).
