Oly 75-300mm - is it worth it?
11 months ago

Hi,
I have an omd em5 with an increasing collection of lenses. My main interest is macro shots, for which I love my oly 60mm. However I bought an oly 40-150mm for bird photography and trickier moving insects like dragonflies. However, I haven't really been able to get decent pics with it. Even with a tripod for my awful camera shake, nothing is really that sharp. I'm not sure if it is my inexperience, unrealistic expectations or the lens. Anyway, I'm thinking of upgrading again but the prices on longer zoom lenses are a touch high, so I am wondering if the upgrade is worth it?
