Re: Olympus 75-300 Mk1 vs. Olympus FT 70-300

I currently use the FT 70-300 on my OM-D, and it is honestly a nightmare to use if I have any hope of getting an in-focus picture in less than about 30 seconds. It hunts focus in broad daylight, and has the lovely habit of locking focus for a moment, and then merrily continuing down the line til everything is a blur. This price drop is a godsend for me, although I'm still undecided between it and the Pany 100-300. It will all come down to price.
