Thanks for your comments and nice hornbill shots, btw.

How would you compare the 75-300 to the Pana 100-300mm (that is, if you've used the Panasonic).

Also, tell me what you hate about the 12mm...I'm trying to find reasons not to purchase one.

Hey Ollie,

I've never tried the Panasonic 100-300, sorry.

As for the 12mm, it is probably my most-used lens. I like it. Optically, it's not quite as good as it should be for the price. if you're looking for a reason not to buy one then you might want to convince yourself that it's not very good value for money. I really don't think it's worth $800 - but I don't regret buying it because I get so much use out of it.
