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.

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.

Will the Zuiko 70 - 300mm f/4-5.6 ED lense fit my E520 body?


Yes, no problem at all. The lens is a Four-Thirds mount and that's what your camera is designed to accept.

I have the 70-300mm and for some reason i cant get it to focus either on auto or manual. it was working ok on day then took it out in the snowy weather and it wouln't work. can anyone help?


Quick temperature changes may cause this. I have the same lens. May be you must clean the pins while attaching lens to the body. If this information will help you please give your vote. Good Luck.

Zuiko 70-300mm lens focusing problem


Haha!!
Maybe its something you're not doing, LOL.
Look on the side of the lens. Most of the 70-300 macros have a slide switch. My Tamron, for instance, needs to be zoomed out to 300, then slide the switch to Macro and its ok. Look for the slide switch. You might also notice lines of a different color to denote Macro.
Some days it too tough to be smarter than the lens,
LOL.

I spoke to our local J&A Camera shop who gave me a short tuition on the lens.
Most of this I was aware of.
Thank you to J&A and yourselves.

Get a CLA-1 lens tube. It screws into the camera body. The other end accepts 43mm accessories. Put on a 43-49mm step-up ring. Into that screw a 49mm UV filter. (The step-up ring is needed to separate the filter from the extended lens.) Leave the UV filter on at all times. Throw away the lens cap.
