Olympus 70-300mm on OM-D?

Hi

I'm looking to get a telephoto lens for my OM-D. Looking at options, I notice that the 4/3 Zuiko 70-300mm is much much cheaper and faster than the native m43 75-300mm.

So I was thinking of getting it with the MMF-1 converter.

What do I lose by using 4/3 lenses instead of native lenses? afaik 4/3 lenses are the only ones (other than native) with which you can do AF, right?

Is the AF with 4/3 lenses quite bad / slow?
Do you lose IBIS?

Thanks!
