Overview

Description by Tokina:

The New Tokina 300mm f/6.3 compact telephoto mirror lens is designed specifically for mirrorless compact cameras using the micro 4/3rds mount.

The 300mm focal length of the lens gives effective 600mm (in 35mm terms) when placed on a mirrorless camera body making it a super-telephoto lens. This allows distant subject to be brought in much closer. But despite this powerful focal length the lens is incredibly compact to match the size of the compact cameras it was intended to be used with.

The lens has a fixed f/6.3 aperture.

The Tokina 300 has all metal lens barrels and very high quality glass optics to yield the best optical performance from a new of this design.

This lens has a wide grip area on the manual focusing ring and smooth movement to assist in focusing. This is not an auto-focus lens.

Reviews

A 600mm equivalent lens that boasts a constant f6.3 aperture, a diminutive size and mass, and costs just a bit more than a common kit lens? There's got to be a catch, and in this case, quite a few of them, like the issue of image quality:

"Far from being a viable replacement for a more expensive telephoto lens, what we have here is a lens that produces a certain effect, that may be of interest to some. The effect it produces can be used to great effect for the right subject, but can also spoil an otherwise good image.

Being a Japanese site, we'll stick to the Google translate version, which is funnier than the actual lens:

"On a sense of resolution, contrast with those.  Not seen, such as coma, such as noticeable, but it is also the lesser limb darkening.  A vivid image of the periphery of the screen as well, is a depiction satisfactory as a mirror lens.  These materials

"Focusing the lens is fairly simple to do. All you need to do is keep in mind the 600mm focal length (equivalent) and just pay very close attention to your potential subject.

Oh also, it does this really cool doughnut-shaped-bokeh-thinger. That is characteristic of most mirror lenses, and it should be

"I spent an afternoon shooting with the Lumix 100-300mm at 300mm, and comparing results against the Tokina 300mm mirror lens. It was akin to a battle between the halt and lame. The Lumix shows a bit better resolution but also some significant chromatic aberration (purple fringing) while the Tokina has no CA but also lower contrast. The resolution of the

"Shooting with a lens with a focal length of 600 mm (converted to a full-frame sensor) is not easy. Focusing should be done very carefully. Handheld shots with such a lens usually lead to disappointing results. You justmust use a tripod. But even then you should keep in mind that you'll need very clear weather to create sharp images taken from a large

"Throughout our testing Reflex Tokina 300mm f / 6,3 MF have learned to compensate for the idiosyncrasies taking advantage of what digital photography offers the one hand, and the special modes of the Olympus OM-D on the other: we set characteristic curve making the camera (possible in the OM-D), providing more density in the shadows and brightness and contrast in the lights. With this adjustment, the gain is very important acutance. Of course, each user will know
