Tokina is set to launch a 300mm f/6.3 lens designed for use on micro four thirds cameras.

Described as a compact and lightweight super-telephoto, the lens will deliver the 35mm viewing angle equivalent of a 600mm zoom.

‘As the lens isn’t autofocus it gives the photographer greater creative freedom and its telephoto capabilities provide exceptionally sharp images from a distance,’ claims Paul Kench, managing director of Tokina’s UK distributor, Kenro.

The Tokina 300mm f/6.3 weighs 300g and is due out early next month, priced £339.

    Can Tokina please make one to fit the four thirds E system DSLRs now that Olympus looks like it will be producing a new model which I am really looking forward to buying.
