My success with this lens on a tripod is the same as any other lens I have, but I seldom ever choose moving targets. The E-M5 is well known for being unable to handle moving targets. But if the subject just sits there, I have no problem whatsoever with the 75-300mm II @ 300mm (or slightly less). With the E-M5, it balances and behaves beautifully on a tripod, so I can't imagine what you're talking about, unless you're only applying your criticism to a moving target. I like it much better than my Panny 45-200mm, although I get good results with it, too. And of course you need a very rigid tripod and a high quality ball head.
