Nice lens, and great price!

I own one also, and it makes a fine general nature lens for both stills and video {i use it with my gh2 and Nikon dslr}.

Personally, i prefer the legacy option, as it can be used on multiple formats {at the expense of losing af with m43}......whereas as a native m43 300mm f4 would tie me to the m43 format exclusively.

Sample with the Sigma 300/4 on the OM-D:

Not bad a'tall.  Still getting used to button usage, I have the magnified view set to the video button.  Once I get the "system" down it will be fine.

One unexpected surprise, full time DOF preview!  Actually helpful.
