Lumix 100-300mm

I've only used this lens a few times but I'm very pleased with the sharpness. The problem with shooting at 300mm (600mm in 35mm) is that very small movements are dramatically magnified even with stabilization.

I have the lens stabilization turned off with duck tape over the button.

here are three examples. The surfing shots are both at 300mm and cropped. I should have shot at a faster shutter speed.

The panda shot is only at 120mm but has good detail imho.

I'm very impressed with what this lens delivers at such a reasonable price and size.
