Would be okey for my EPL5, but a tad too big. So I'll stick withthe 100-300 I have. I think the IQ and probably AF of the Oly is better. Also, the 100-300 ishard to focus, costs a lot of power to do it actually. IQ wise, especially under 250 mm it is pretty good.

The long zooms hand held are a real problem on anything but the top 5 axis (or maybe the 3 axis) bodies ... I would never bother to use the Oly 70-300 on my EPM2 for example ...

The 100-300 works on every body made ... and works well.

Still, I got the German collar for the 100-300 because 600mm is basically going to be a challenge in anyone's hands ...
