Best telephoto for OM-D E-M1
7 months ago

I just switched from Canon FF to m4/3rd. The biggest attraction for me was the reduced size and weight of the gear. Keeping that in mind, I am looking to get a high grade telephoto lens. Ultimately I am looking for the fastest and best quality lens (both in sharpness and quality of bokeh) while sticking to the m4/3rd philosophy of being small and lightweight.

Having owned a Canon 500 F4 L, the 100-400 (which I was never very happy with IQ wise), and most L lenses from Canon, I guess I am biased as to what I consider great image quality. I know I will not be able to match FF quality and DOF, but what is currently the best telephoto lens out there for my OM-D E-M1?

I looked at the items below, but none of them convinced me when reading the reviews:

Olympus 75-300mm F4.8-6.7 II

Panasonic Lumix G Vario 100-300mm F/4.0-5.6 OIS

Olympus Digital Zuiko 50-200mm f/2.8-3.5 ED SWD

Olympus ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 90-250mm F2.8
