sharpest: Panny 100-300 or Oly 75-300 Mk2 ?
Jun 14, 2014

Has anyone tried both?
..as I would greatly appreciate feedback from hands on experienced users.

I have a Panasonic GX7 which has got in body stabilisation, so either lens would work stabilsed.

My previous experience with panny and oly lenses I own are are:

* Pan 14-45. A brilliant ultra sharp piece of glass from wide to long. Love it.

* Pan 45-200. A quite poor piece of glass. Sharp at the wide end, but soft over about 120mm and it suffers from LoCa (Longitudinal chromatic abberation, which can't be sorted in software).

* Pan 14-140. Very sharp up to about 70mm, but poor over that and really soft at 110-140mm unless stopped down to f11.

* Oly 9-18. What a tremendous bit of glass. Generally really sharp everywhere, except slightly soft on extreme corners at widest angle setting if used at fairly open aperture (that improves somewhat if stopped down to over f8 but it really isn't that bad anyway).

But now I would like to try and get a sharp M4/3 for much longer shots.
