Period of use: 144 months

Strengths:
  • Extremely sharp, at any aperture (limited by diffraction), corner-to-corner!
  • Close focusing (3 metres) for a reproduction ratio of 1:7.
  • Internal focusing via a smooth rotating cam.
  • Nine diaphragm blades result in smooth bokeh and 18-point sun stars.
  • Outstanding build quality and precision, and resulting fit-and-finish.
  • Integrated lens hood.
  • The matched Olympus 1.4X-A tele-extender affects the image quality minimally, resulting in a super-sharp 500mm ƒ/4 lens!

Weaknesses:

  • Big and heavy, but any lens of this reach and aperture will be big and heavy.
  • Flourite coating on front element is soft and scratches easily.
  • No way to put a protection filter on the front.
  • Somewhat rare and expensive, although not as much as the 250mm ƒ/2 little-sister lens.
  • As a classic legacy film lens, it is manual focus only.

Comments:

This is simply an awesome, classic lens!

It is especially useful for wildlife, motor sports, even macro. But with moving subjects, you have to use old-school manual focus techniques, such as pre-focus on a spot that the subject moves into.

It is still useful on modern mirrorless cameras via a simple adapter, but becomes even more awesome with the Metabones Speedbooster Ultra, which gives you a 250mm ƒ/2 lens for a fraction of the cost of the ultra-rare OM Zuiko 250mm ƒ/2.
