does your 100-300 work better at slower than 1/25th?

Don't see how this could have been done better.

A tripod sometimes help but is no panacea. I have shutter-shock problems with my E-M5 and 100-300/4-5.6 at 300 mm in the critical range of shutter speeds (from about 1/25 to about 1/250) even in tripod-based shooting. In order to get sharp results with this combo, I simply have to move out of that range.

Are you saying that at 300mm, the results are sharper at 1/15th of a second than at 1/50th?
