Any telephoto zoom 4/3 Lenses for E-M1 that are much better than similar m4/3?
Mar 9, 2014

Here's a new angle/question. First, the basic facts:

1) EM-1 will natively use older 4/3 lenses.

2) E-M5 will not use older 4/3 lenses without adapter kludge.

3) The m4/3 lens lineup for zoom telephotos is somewhat different than the older 4/3 lineup.

4) General consensus is that the advantage of the E-M1 over the e-m5 is not image quality, but somewhat better autofocus for moving objects. On the other hand, the E-M1 is bigger.

Question: For people who have both the e-m5 and e-m1, and familiarity with the speed of focusing and image quality of zoom telephotos for both 4/3 and m4/3, are there any zoom telephoto lenses FOR 4/3 that are better than, for example, the Olympus 75-300 II?

Olympus E-M1 Olympus M.Zuiko ED 75-300mm 1:4.8-6.7 II
