I use the em5 and 100-300, its quite good on larger or static birds but hunts too much for bif. I also usw the Panny 35-100 which is a beautiful lens, focuses more accurately, but of course is shorter. Can't wait for someone to come out with a high quality longer lens, perhaps since Oly discontinued the 75-300 the replacement will be good!

If you're in no hurry, it might pay to wait a little and see if the 75-300 is really being replaced. It would make sense for Olympus to try and make one with lighter faster focusing elements. Hopefully with a more reasonable price (but I would guess not).

My guess is that it's the same lens in a MKII version with weather-sealing and probably not much other differences.
