For Sale: Soligor 70-220mm Constant F3.5 Macro For Olympus Zuiko Mount Telephoto Lens


Yes that’s right, I am selling this solid beauty of glass and metal. It’s a constant F3.5 even at 220mm. Originally got it for my Olympus OM-2000 but rarely used it as I shoot mostly digital now.


Clean glass. No dents or scratches. Very nice black finish. OM Zuiko mount.

Note that it needs the Zuiko to Four-Thirds adapter to be used on Olympus E-System bodies or Panasonic L-series bodies.

Works great with the Olympus E-3 and Olympus E-510 because you can enter the focal length of the lens with their latest firmware. You’ll get a 440mm F3.5! The only current Four-Thirds lens that gets to 220mm while being at least this bright is the Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 90-250mm F2.8.


Fully extended length with retractable hood and turned to minimum focusing distance.


It has a built-in tripod mount.

Includes 77mm front cap and rear cap.


Close up of the lens. It is a push-pull but it does not increase focal length when extended – instead, it goes backwards! Note the yellow macro ring, which gives a boost in lens extension.


Mounted on my Olympus OM-2000.

Sample Shots


70mm with Fujifilm Superia ASA 1600.


220mm with Fujifilm Superia ASA 1600.


Can’t remember the focal length but this was at 1/30s with Fujifilm Superia ASA 100.


220mm with full macro extension with Fujifilm Superia ASA 1600. It was evening so the shutter speed was 1/60s which makes it a tad unsharp.

Selling price is RM450, negotiable. Lens can be inspected before buying. Would prefer COD (Cash On Delivery) in Klang Valley. Please email albnok@hotmail.com if you are interested.
