If the E-M5 IBIS manages 4 stops then that could be 1/30 second for 300mm.

If the E-M5 IBIS manages to get to the "claimed" possible 5 stops then that's 1/15 second at 300mm.

Some people can do better, some do worse, but this little 71 yr old Guy manages to reliably fit the normal pattern. Lean against a wall or tree and usually gain 2 or 3 stops without stabilisation, that's what I did in film days.

but that was also partly due to the subjects not being cooperative.

The 4/3 was a bit annoying - quite a bit of hunting if you picked the wrong focus target.  So much so I started to prefer the 40-150.

Hopefully I will be able to give the 75-300 a go next week.
