African safari-Panny 100-300 or Olympus 75-300?
7 months ago

We just booked a trip to Africa with some safari trekking at end of September, I am a lucky person.  I want a long lens (Longest now is 14-140) and settled on Panny 100-300 OR Olympus 75-300.  Size and weight are important, as well as IQ (particularly at the long end), speed to a lesser extent as I can use higher ISO.  Cameras are EM-1 and my wife's EM-5.  Cannot use a tripod in safari vehicle, so braced handheld will be it.  Other lenses are Panny 20mm 1,7, Olympus 45mm 1.8.

ANY helpful suggestions/opinions would be highly appreciated!
