    Default Olympus 70-300mm f/4-5.6

    This is definitely one of my favourite zooms, cheap, lightweight, and able to do 1:2 macro

    From macro to far away, probably the best bang for buck zoom that exists in this category.

    The bokeh is indeed smooth. - It rekindles my concern that there may be something wrong with my copy. With reference to my photo of a Spitfire model above, I don't remember the heat haze being quite as it appears in the photo.

    Could very well be heat haze. Airfields tend to give off a lot of heat during a hot day, and remember you're really zooming into it.

    Best to try a picture of something else to see if your lens is OK.

    A sassy little wren "hiding" in dead cedar branches. I haven't done much shooting lately, and just came upon this thread. Thanks, Edmunds.

    One taken a couple of springtimes ago. It is a beautiful thing to live right on the Great Lakes and have eagles fly by the front window on a regular basis.
