Oly 75-300?

Seems to be little mention of the 75-300 Olympus zoom lens in this thread. I did a search and it is apparently a little sharper than the Panasonic 100-300. Anyone had experience using both? With the IBIS of the E-M5, I would imagine critical sharpness is more important than the OIS of the Panasonic lens, although the aperture is not as bright on the Olympus. Just curious if anyone has experience!

Oly 75-300 or Pany 100-300. With the new IBIS of the E-M5 you probably don't need the OIS of the Pany, but the price is still a lot cheaper for the Pany. You may want the weight savings of the Oly though.

One thing, you may want to get an E-PL1/E-PM1 or something similar to have one of the shorter lenses on so you don't have to keep swapping lenses out in the dusty conditions and missing shots.
