Olympus 35-100mm f/2 for Four Thirds

Available April 29, 2014

WARNING: This is a 4/3 mount lens designed for 4/3 mount cameras. It does not work with Micro 4/3 mount cameras unless using an adapter!

One of the best lenses in the Olympus system, the 35-100mm provides an extremely fast f/2.0 aperture throughout its entire range, making it the envy of indoor sports shooters everywhere. The equivalent of the 70-200mm zoom lenses made by every manufacturer: excellent image quality throughout its range, but with the ability to reduce shutter speeds by 1/2 compared to the f/2.8 zooms.

Please Note: Due to a variety of problems we have encountered, we do not recommend using Olympus 4/3 lenses for video use with Panasonic Micro 4/3 cameras/camcorders. Rent at your own risk.

How good is this lens you ask? Well, AMAZING! It is the 4/3 70-200 equivalent plus an extra stop. Is that extra stop usable? Most definitely. I’m trying to remember a time when I wanted to stop this baby down, and nothing comes to mind. It’s just as sharp wide open in the center with a quick AF. Will you cry when you get the phone call because you’re 3 days late sending it back? Yep, sorry. Must share with others.
