Telephoto lens recommendations of OM-D?
Mar 25, 2013


I would normally do the research myself, but I am living a rather isolated life in afghanistan with limited online time.

I bought an OM-D at the beginning of last year and i have the 12-50mm and the 20mm 1.7 panasonic. i've been happy with both, though autofocus is not as fast as i'd like in low light with both lenses.

i just got word that i have a job in antarctica later in the year and it got me thinking that i could use a long zoom for wildlife. specifically killer whales, penguins and seals.

i had a quick look at the options and there is the 100-300 4.0-5.6. standing out as the winner on raw specs. any thoughts on this or other lenses?

oh, i also have the m4/3 to 4/3 adapter if that is the way to go. and i have enjoyed the confidence that the 12-50's weather sealing has given me, but that is not a critical need.
