The Oly 75-300mm...

The Oly 75-300mm is a bit expensive, but worth the money. It is well built, focuses very fast, and the optics are razor sharp -- although it is not a real fast lens, aperture wise.

Keep in mind that on the E-M5 you are talking about a 35mm equivalent of 150-600mm. If you also use the E-M5's Digital Teleconverter (DTC), you are then looking at a 1200mm field of view at full zoom.

Below is a close up shot of a Great White Egret I shot with my E-M5 and Oly 75-300mm using the DTC -- this was not cropped in post processing.

God Bless,
