For EM-5/E-PM2, do people like Olympus 75-300mm or Panasonic 100-300mm

Re: For EM-5/E-PM2, do people like Olympus 75-300mm or Panasonic 100-300mm

I honestly like the 100-300 a lot better, for two reasons:  1.) It is faster (4-5.6 vs 4.8-6.7) and 2.) I find the panasonic OIS to be much better than the Oly IBIS at very long focal lengths.  I can get consistently sharp shots at 1/250 and 1/320 with the panasonic OIS but have issues managing that with OIS turned off and IBIS on.  Thanks to the Oly menus you can easily have lens stabilization priority on, so you don't have to remember to switch off IBIS every time you switch to that lens.
