The max i've seen verifiably used was 128MB. I have heard reports of 256MB used but could not verify. I currently use 128MB without issue.

I had what sounds like the same problem. The camera was dropped and the shutter was stuck open. Just kept showing error message.
As I felt I had nothing to lose I began tapping it on a soft book and the shutter started to appear. I then shut it just using the end of my finger. When I then turned the camera on again it opened and shut when turned off. It has worked fine ever since.
Seems a rather poor design.
Hope this helps. Very best regards Peat.

The problem you are describing is a problem with a sensor in the lens assembly of the camera. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $73 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

The markings on the lens barrel are for macro mode purposes. When the zoom ring is set for 300mm that is the distance you are shooting at. It will zoom the barrel all the way out to 300mm if it needs to to help to obtain focus on the subject.

Hope this clears things up for you.

Why wont my Olympus zuiko 300mm lens zoom to max length?


Most camera's can't focus when the aperture number is above 5,6. Although your tele zoom starts at 4,8, it reaches the 5,6 at about 150 mm. So from there and up it can't auto focus. You still should be able to focus manually, but for wild life or sports pictures, it is useless.

Problem useing the zoom on Olympus 70-300mm Lense


No, but it appears that there is a bad tooth or something in the gear mechanism of the lens. Internal issue, hopefully over time it will "go away." Cross fingers and hope it does not get any worse. I would carefully shake the heck out of it to possibly dislodge what ever it is.

I have a 70-300 mm for my E-520. It is barely a month old. If I focus manually, with the large 'grip' ring set at 300mm, the lens will only focus at 150mm even when focusing on a high flying aeroplane. In...


The lens is definitely faulty. Either return it to the retailer for an exchange/refund or send it to the manufacturer for a warranty repair. Of the options available, a warranty repair should be your absolute last choice.

Can this lens fit an olympus C 5060 ?


No, it will not. The C-5060 does not use interchangable lenses. I cannot tell from the picture that you have attached what cameras this will fit. It it was, in fact made by Olympus, it would appear to belong to their line of 35mm film cameras.

What magnification is a 75-300mm lens (10_20_30 times ???)


This lens has a zoom ratio of 4 :1 or 4 times.

Basically 75mm x 2 = 150mm
150mm x 2 = 300mm
I hope that helps,
