I have the Olympus OMD-E5 camera body. Purchased it this past summer. One of the things I like to shoot in addition to architecture, casuals, and others, I also like to shoot birds. Not necessarily birds in flight but like ducks on the water or Cormorants on boat buoys near the family cabin. Previously I had a Digital Rebel which was okay at taking these types of pictures with the 75mm-300mm lens, but I thought I could find a lens for the Oly that would be a longer lens. If I want to shoot these birds, and backyard hummingbirds as well which lens do you think would work best for my camera? Or should I go back to the Digital Rebel and just find a longer lens for that guy?

Your options are the Zuiko m43 75-300mm (better, pretty expensive), the Panasonic m43 100-300mm (less expensive) and the Micro Four Thirds forum. Good luck.
