75 mm comes in handy

Nice bird shot...

The 75-300ii lens is an ok telephoto, especially in good light. This was my first tele for m4/3rds so I have used it a lot.

When I got my Panasonic G9, I went for the Many 100-300ii lens as it provided dual stabilization with that camera. Comparing the two lens, I would give the nod to the Panasonic over the Olympus, but not by much. Both lens are quite good for what their intended usage. I do get more keepers with the dual stabilization though.

Yea, but having 75 mm on the wide end is nice. Sometimes I'm out for BIF and I want something wider without changing lenses.

I think that gives the nod to the Oly.

I believe in science, evolution and light. All opinions are my own. I'm not compensated for any of my posts. Can you honestly say that?
