I added the Oly 300mm f/2.8 a couple of weeks ago and it is an awesome lens on the OMD EM1 Mark II.....I also have the 40-150 f/28 which I shoot with the MC 1.4 Tele-extender and love that combo.

Interesting. I also have the 300 f/2.8 which I still use for birding with the E-5. I have gone Canon FF (5D MKIII) for the rest of my photography. I am debating whether I should double down on Canon and get another body and a super telephoto (big $ - ouch!) or get a EM 1 MKII for my DZ 300 and continue shooting two systems.

How well does the AF work on your EM1 MKII - 300 f/2.8 combo? Does it do C-AF well enough for birds in flight?
