100-300 or 75-300?

sorry,it's just an impression from what I've read, images I've seen... and I don't have several days to go back and sort through all of that to present you a nice neat package.

I do know my own 100-300 seems a little softer @ 300 than @ 100, but can't say I've done an extensive study to prove it.

I wouldn't base my decision based solely on that, however.

For a Panny user, the 100-300 is the best choice

Perhaps too for the PEN user if the IBIS isn't up to the task?

For the budget conscious, the 100-300 wins again

But on the OM-D, unlimited budget or where size trumps cost, the 75-300 would be my choice.

Hey, if the 75-300 is discontinued, where's the fire sale? 

(I don't think it is though)
