Yes, the reduced light and/or contrast (depending upon the setting of the polarizer) weakens the contrast-dependent auto-focus. Auto-Focus in pin-point mode on this lens is quite good (I'm using it on a GX1) through 200mm then gets less reliable as it approaches 300mm. But with perched birds, without a polarizer, the 300mm reach is excellent, even in complex brushy situations. There really is nothing out there for m4/3 auto-focus with this reach that approaches it's quality.

The sticky zoom ring is annoying but doesn't get in the way for more wildlife use.
